Video: Tourism brings new opportunities to remote areas of the Faroe Islands

Tourism has created new job opportunities in remote areas of the Faroe Islands.

“I think tourism is a godsend for the Faroese, us out here, so remote. That people want to visit and buy something from us, that´s no small blessing. We are in this fortunate position of being able to look to what others elsewhere have done, and learn from their experiences. It´s a great, great opportunity and we must take advantage of it.”

– Gunnar Skúvadal, local boat tour organizer at
