Online trip to the Faroe Islands |

Visit the Faroe Islands from your couch

As all other countries in the world, the Faroe Islands has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
So they have politely asked tourists to refrain from visiting our islands until further notice.

But that wasn't the only action they took.

Early on in this global crisis, they wondered how they could recreate a Faroe Islands’ experience for those who had to cancel or postpone their trip to the Faroe Islands – and for everyone else stuck in insolation around the world.

So they had a brilliant idea.

What if they could allow people anywhere in the world to explore the islands as virtual tourists through the eyes of a local?
Or even better; what if the virtual tourists could control the movements of the local in real time?

A couple of weeks later, their idea became reality.
They have created a new remote tourism tool, the first of its kind.

Via a mobile, tablet or PC, you can explore the Faroes’ rugged mountains, see close-up its cascading waterfalls and spot the traditional grass-roofed houses by interacting – live – with a local Faroese, who will act as your eyes and body on a virtual exploratory tour.

The local is equipped with a live video camera, allowing people to not only see views from an on-the-spot perspective, but also to control where and how they explore using a joypad to turn, walk, run or even jump!

Just like a real-life computer game, the main player will control the moves of the Faroese islander, who will not only explore locations on foot, but also take to the skies by helicopter, giving virtual visitors a bird’s eye perspective on their beautiful island nation’s steep grassy slopes, their 80,000 sheep and their unspoilt, wild and natural countryside.

During the virtual tours, which will take place once or twice daily until 25 April at least, the team at Visit Faroe Islands will be online in real time to answer any questions that people may have, providing both inspiration and expert knowledge about places to visit and things to see.

They hope that visiting their remote islands through the eyes and body of a local can bring joy and inspiration during these challenging times – and they, of course, hope to welcome visitors in person once all are free to travel again.
