7 Nights Faroe Islands Photography Tour

Like all locations I visit, the Faroe Islands is a photographers paradise! I honestly believe that no photo or video will ever do Faroe Islands any justice. It has to be seen with your own eyes to appreciate the shear size, beauty and wildness of the place. You’re guaranteed to have an adventure here.

This trip includes everything except your flights and food. Once you arrive, I’ll look after you, airport transfers, transport during the tour, accommodation, guiding, and all tuition.

Introduction

This Faroe Islands Photography Tour has been planned with the photographer right in the center, we’ll go where the light is at it’s best. Although we have a lot of locations to get around, do not despair, it won’t be a case of getting 15 minutes to photograph each location, we’ll have plenty of time to explore the areas and if we’re driving down the road and you spot something you like and if safe to do so, I will stop!

Each day we will be on location before sunrise and shooting all day until after sunset.

As with all my Photography Tours & Workshops I like to keep the numbers small, and this photo tour is limited to only five people! This allows me to spend more one on one time with you, helping you with any questions you may have.

Transport for the week will be a 9 Seater vehicle or similar.

Your Guide

Photographer, Light Chaser, Aurora Guide, Web Dev, Biker, Daddy and I’ve got a very understanding girlfriend in no particular order.

Itinerary

There is no fixed daily itinerary on my Faroe Islands Photography Tour.  I like to work with the weather as much as possible and visit locations based on the current weather conditions. As an example, you can drive through a tunnel where on one side it’s clear blue skies and the other side is a blizzard.  Each evening I will “plan” the next day and let everyone know what time we’ll be leaving so that we can be on location 1 hour before sunrise. I want to maximise your chances of going home with great images!

The tour starts from Vágar Airport (FAE), Faroe Islands.  When looking at flights, please arrive no later than 5PM on arrival day. If your flight arrives after this, drop me a message and I will help you as best I can.

If you are travelling the day before, just let me know so I can arrange to collect you.

Day 1 – Arrival Day

This is the arrival day, I’ll be collecting everyone from the airport. Depending on what time everyone lands, we will squeeze in a sunset shoot. We’ll get settled into our accommodation for the next week and run over the “plan” for the week. Retiring early for our start the next morning.

Day 2 to 7 – The Adventure

This is where the real adventure begins.

Over the next 6 full days we will be photographing at every opportunity we can get. We’ll be getting up early every morning (regardless of weather) to be on location 1 hour before sunrise, after each sunrise shoot we’ll head for breakfast before heading to our next location. 

Each sunset location, we’ll be there roughly 2 hours before so that we can each scope out our sunset composition.

On the final evening, we’ll head out for our final meal together where we can look back on our amazing week together.

Day 8 – Departure Day

Goodbyes are forever, I’ll be saying see you later as I hope you’ll join me on another adventure. We’ll head to the airport where everyone can catch their flights home.

CompositionComposition is everything in landscape photography. Learn how to compose a landscape photograph.

Long Exposures: Learn how to use long exposures so you can create dramatic and interesting photographs.

Good to Know

Accommodation: I’ve booked 2 cottages only 5 minutes from the Airport.  Each participant will have their own room. 

Flights – Airline: Atlantic Airways. Seasonal flights from Edinburgh every Monday & Thursday. Keflavik: Mondays and Fridays. Daily flights from Copenhagen. (2023 schedule not yet released).

Hiking – Many of the locations do require hiking. You don’t need to be an athlete but you must be able to walk on uneven, sometimes steep and slippery ground for maybe up to 2 hours one way.

Self Catering – There isn’t a great choice of restaurants on the island, or they’re closed during off season.  We will go to supermarket everyday or every other day to gather what’s necessary for the coming days.  Supermarkets are closed on Sundays. Every day I advise to bring lunch and snacks to eat throughout the day.

Spending Money – On my last trip, I managed to spend approximately £20/£25 per day. Everywhere takes card, cash isn’t needed.

UK Mobile Network – I advise to buy a sim card at the airport.  Costs approximately £10 and comes with 2GB of data. I used the 2GB of data in 2 days, and topped up 5GB for £10 which lasted the rest of the week.
