Bad weather and storm around the Faroe Islands recently, damage, ferry services and bus routes getting canceled. In the central highlands of the island Streymoy, whirlwinds speed up to angry 42,5 m/s at the moment. Hotspots: The old mountain road Oyggjarvegur and the mountain pass Norðadalsskarð.
Believe me, you don’t want to be around when gale-force winds rule. But you definitely should come back at another time. This is what Streymoy’s central highlands looked like the other day. Dazzling, right? I usually bring a Thermos bottle filled with hot coffee with me, also proper shoes (it’s about 3 degrees colder than down in Tórshavn up here at this time of the year), and then I take a long walk. One of my favorite places on the Faroe Islands. Simply balm for the soul.
Oyggjarvegur, highlands and the Faroe Islands in general: Off-road driving is prohibited by law. Please respect nature.
