Faroe Islands closed for ecological maintenance!
The Faroe Archipelago, located halfway between Iceland and Norway, is one of the best preserved places on the planet and it hopes to stay that way! Ten of the Archipelago’s key sites were closed on 26th and 27th April 2019 for ecological maintenance and spring cleaning. A radical and unprecedented preventive measure for better cohabitation between ecology and tourism.
Faroe, a unique destination
This innovative operation followed in the wake of other original initiatives by the Faroe Islands. This archipelago, lost in the middle of nowhere, is full of imagination for attracting outside attention and winning over hearts! For example, in 2016, the local tourist office had the idea of affixing 360° cameras onto the backs of sheep to convince Google to add the Faroe Islands onto Street View!
The good news is that the Faroe Islands have now reopened their doors to visitors! An off-the-beaten-path destination for all nature-loving globetrotters looking for an original experience.
