“The Faroe Islands are perfect for travelers looking to get off-the-beaten path — and getting ‘off-the-beaten path’ is more popular than ever,” notes Travel and Leisure.
T&L reports that the Faroe Islands’ Vagar Airport reported a 25 percent increase in visitors in May — with another record-breaking tourist season expected this summer.
“May has proven to be very satisfying indeed. Normally we have some 20,000 – 25,000 travelers in May,” Jákup Sverri Kass, CEO at Vagar Airport said in a statement. “We had some 32,500 passengers through the terminal.”
