Torshavn is reputed to have been founded in the 10th century and as such is the oldest capital in Northern Europe. The 18 Faroe islands, located between Scotland and Iceland is an exquisite, little known and under-visited archipelago boasting lovely wild landscapes.

Nature-lovers will be in their element with the special bird-watching excursion to the densely populated bird cliffs of Vestsmanna whilst those in the mood for adventure can swap the ship for a thrilling boat ride exploring the fjords and cliffs around Torshavn.
