Postponed in 2023 … this time I made my reservations 10 months in advance to get the ferries I wanted. And inexpensive accommodation.
I can cancel accommodation at no cost.
If I eventually have to cancel the ferries, I’ll pay 10% of the € 337 total cost for me, my bike, and a bunkbed on the ship.
The Faroe Islands are expensive and in high demand, high season. Far less so if you book long ahead of time.
July 27th – depart Hirtshals (Denmark) on the Smyril ferry
July 28th – arrive Tórshavn (Faroe Islands)
Aug 7th – depart Tórshavn
Aug 8th – arrive Seyðisfjörður (Iceland) at 8:30am
That gives me 9 full days for cycling and hiking. Weather is a factor, of course. Faroe Islands are just south of the Arctic Circle.
The more days, the more opportunity for clear skies. 😀
I booked during the Olympics.
IF it rains 😀, I’ll instead be following the action in Paris online. Indoors.
