The Faroe Islands is your next destination, says New York Post

According to New York Post´s Hannah-Rose Yee, the Faroe Islands is your next destination while ”Iceland is over”.

According to New York Post´s Hannah-Rose Yee, the Faroe Islands is your next destination while ”Iceland is over”.

In an article published yesterday under the heading ”This remote country is your next bucket list destination”, Yee points out that ”there’s something for everyone (in the Faroe Islands), especially if you’re looking for some quality time with nature on your next vacation.”

Yee also suggests that there are too many tourists in Iceland.

– Iceland is over. Sure it’s still beautiful as hell and full of glorious, pristine landscapes. But it’s also full of tourists: Two million of them, in fact. On any given day there’s an average of 26,000 tourists traipsing across those glorious, pristine landscapes in Iceland. That equates to roughly 7.2 percent of the population. That’s a lot, says Yee.

She mentions a couple of things that she loves about the Faroe Islands:

– An incredible 22 hours of sunlight in the summer.

– Nordic food which is experiencing a resurgence

– Koks, the islands’ first Michelin-starred restaurant, with an epic 17-course tasting menu

– Wandering the picturesque streets of Tórshavn, the Faroese capital, which is ”not quite bustling, but big enough for a spot of shopping”
