What Is Included?

The price of your trip will include round-trip airfare from Copenhagen, Denmark (CPH) to Vagar, Faroe Islands and all transportation, tolls, and ferries in the Faroes. Also included is a private room in a hotel in the heart of Torshavn as well as breakfast and dinner for each day of the tour. Your fee covers admissions to museums, concerts, festivals, and other special events we'll take in on the tour. Tour arrangements include compensation for all Faroese locals contributing to our itinerary, so no tipping is necessary or expected for local guides, musicians, dinner guests, etc.

What Is Not Included?

You are responsible for all travel to and from the departure city of Copenhagen. It will be your responsibility to get to the departure airport in time to meet your group at our departure gate on July 5th. You will be given departure times well in advance so you can make these arrangements. Keep in mind you will have to collect your bags and recheck them in Copehnagen.

You will also be responsible for lunches, snacks, and beverages, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic.
