Z04-23: Explore the Faroe Islands
This sailing trip is in a truly unique cruising area, with fantasy-like landscapes, high steep cliffs and magnificent waterfalls. It is not called little Iceland for nothing, but in terms of sailing it is even better because there are several islands where we can sail even in worse weather.
The scenery is spectacularly beautiful, a combination between Fair Isle and the Isle of Skye. Rugged, desolate with no trees and houses with grass roofs. Lots of wild-life and, with some luck, we might also see whales or even walruses.
Strong tidal currents, fierce winds, fog and downdrafts make this sailing area challenging, but therefore also extra beautiful. Therefore we do not describe a particular route, but we will see what is possible that week. Fortunately, the fjords, ‘Sounds’ and islands also provide shelter so there are many possibilities. In short, it will be a voyage of exploration, visiting as many different islands as possible, depending on the possibilities.
The breathtaking cliffs off Vestmanna are at certainly on the programme, where we will sail very close by. In good weather, we will also sail past the famous ‘Stack Drangarnir’, at which the surrounding rocks and islands are even more impressive.
There will also be time for sightseeing. Such as a trip to the beautiful Gasadalur waterfall, or a hike to the spectacular Trælanípan cliff, where it is said that the Vikings disposed of their elderly slaves. On such a day the Cherokee remains moored in port for a day, allowing us to go out for a long and relaxed time. We will be in a harbour or at anchor each evening, which of course leaves time for land strolls.. There is even extra time for this since it doesn’t actually get dark.
The above schedule is subject to weather, wind and tide.
Land excursions are not included in the price and are of course not mandatory.
