Hotel Føroyar Hero, Faroe Islands


Sat above the Faroe Islands capital of Tórshavn and cloaked in green moss, Hotel Føroyar seamlessly blends into the natural surroundings with magnificent views of the local town below and the ocean ahead, where you can set sail on a vintage schooner to Nólsoy Island. Explore Drangarnir, Tindhólmur and Múlafossur waterfall on a luxury boat trip for the day, before enjoying a private dining experience in the evening with personal chef, Gutti.

In the morning, descend from Føroyar to the foot of the valley where you’ll uncover the local town of Tórshavn on mountain bikes. Continue your cultural discovery as you join fisherman to try your hand at sport fishing and meet with a local fashion designer at a knitwear workshop, where you’ll learn how traditional Faroese clothing and modern design work together.


An architectural phenomenon, the hotel’s contemporary interior also pays homage to local traditions and artists, with corridors and rooms decorated in original masterpieces. Rooms are spacious and minimalistic, with high ceilings, white-washed walls and large windows perfect for watching the everchanging weather fronts roll in and out. Delight in locally sourced vegetarian and pescatarian ingredients at the Ruts restaurant or opt for more casual dining at their 1933 café & bar.

Indulge in innovative mud-based treatments at the newly opened Ress Spa, where you’ll find an array of luxurious treatments from deep-cleansing facials to thorough body massages, or try your hand at rasul – an ancient bathing ritual that combines the health-enhancing properties of heat, steam and mineral-rich mud. An impressive, state-of-the-art fitness centre is also on hand for those looking to warm up before an invigorating hike to mystic waterfalls and the natural wonders of Vagar, including scenic viewpoints and fjords.
