Green Travel Views: The Faroe Islands – Denmark

These 18 rugged spikes of basalt half way between Shetland and Iceland are windy, wet and wild. The crew shooting aerial scenes for the upcoming James Bond film, No Time to Die (out September 30) had to bring in a small helicopter on the ferry from Denmark to film the sheer cliffs surrounding the deep road tunnels that link the four tiny villages on the island of Kalsoy (total population: 70).

In reality the Faroese are probably the people least likely to ever harbour a Bond villain—a tight-knit community of just 52,000 where most people can still name a common ancestor. Getting there is easier than many imagine, with twice weekly flights from Edinburgh (with Atlantic Airways) or twice daily from Copenhagen.

Travel & Culture: The Friendly Citizens Of The Faroe Islands, Denmark

The first thing visitors notice in the Faroe Islands is the breathtaking nature. But soon after, tourists notice something even more special: the way people welcome them into their homes.

The Faroe Islands is a self-governing archipelago, part of the Kingdom of Denmark. It comprises 18 rocky, volcanic islands between Iceland and Norway in the North Atlantic Ocean, connected by road tunnels, ferries, causeways and bridges. Hikers and bird-watchers are drawn to the islands’ mountains, valleys and grassy heathland, and steep coastal cliffs that harbor thousands of seabirds.

Timelapse Travel Videos: ‘Fær Øer 4K’ In The Faroe Islands Of Denmark (2020)

Filmed and Edited by: Marco Equitani

This is my last work entirely shot in Faroe Islands and that means that travel around the world during Covid-emergency is possible if you respect some simple rules.

Do not be afraid to travel, do not close yourself at home with the fear of other people, if you respect yourself and other people with simple rules, you can explore the world in safety, we have to fight for our freedom!
I arrived in Vagar Airport on September 18th and after customs routine we all were immediately tested for Covid-19 and they invited us to self quarantine for at least 24 hours or until we get the result; luckily all the passengers were negative and I got the result after 8 hours, so I was free, even if I have to be tested again in six days.

After the negative test I was free to travel around those amazing islands and start making pictures and timealapse sequence.

To be honest, make a timelapse in Faroe Islands is not easy at all, weather changes every five minute and sometimes I had to restart to capture a scene several times; take a single picture is much easier, you just wait for the rain to stop and you can take your picture, but when you have to take 400/500 photos avery two seconds, weather can suddenly change and destroy your job.

By the way I succed, I was patient and I tried to chose the best moment to capture the best situation nature gave me, but due to extreme weather changes I decided to shot even when light was not perfect because maybe that could be my olny chance.

Faroe Islands are amazing but you have to fight with weather much more than other places like Iceland or Norway.

I was also very lucky with Aurora Borealis, infact isn’t common to see northern light from Faroe Islands, they are they are low in latitude with respect to the Arctic Circle, sky is always cloudy for 300 days per year and to see a good Aurora show you need at least a 4kp Aurora…and it was like that, it, nature gave me a 4kp Aurora and a cloud coverage between 70%-80% so I could see Aurora very good, even if I can’t compare with some clear skyes of Norway or Iceland.

New Aerial Travel Video: The ‘Northern Islands – Lofoten, Faroe & Iceland’

Hei sammen, Halló saman, Hej allesammen and welcome to this breathtaking aerial view of the most beautiful northern Islands in 4K UHD resolution. And yes, I’m talking about the Lofoten (Norway) 🇳🇴, Iceland 🇮🇸, and the Faroe Islands 🇫🇴! The true beauty of these landscapes are just unbelievable!

The Lofoten Islands are draped across the turbulent waters of the Norwegian Sea, far above the Arctic Circle. This rare wilderness outpost offers an untrammeled landscape of majestic mountains, deep fjords, squawking seabird colonies and long, surf-swept beaches.

The Faroe Islands is a self-governing archipelago, part of the Kingdom of Denmark. It comprises 18 rocky, volcanic islands between Iceland and Norway in the North Atlantic Ocean, connected by road tunnels, ferries, causeways and bridges. Hikers and bird-watchers are drawn to the islands’ mountains, valleys and grassy heathland, and steep coastal cliffs that harbor thousands of seabirds.

Iceland, a Nordic island nation, is defined by its dramatic landscape with volcanoes, geysers, hot springs and lava fields. Massive glaciers are protected in Vatnajökull and Snæfellsjökull national parks. Most of the population lives in the capital, Reykjavik, which runs on geothermal power and is home to the National and Saga museums, tracing Iceland’s Viking history.
