The Faroe Islands may seem like a place that only exists in children's books, but it is in fact, very real. Located between Iceland and Scotland, this self-governing kingdom in the Denmark region is a mystery waiting to unfold.

It may not seem a typical European destination, but it doesn't hurt to try new things, does it? Besides, the Faroe Islands have a lot to offer to travelers, and here are the reasons why you should go. 

The islands' music scene. Music is an integral part of Faroese culture, and their traditional ballads that span way back in time are usually sung without instruments! Still, their music today has been influenced by foreign trends, and their love for singing and dancing is evident by the music festivals they held each year. 

The Mykines Island. This beautiful island is a must-visit during your stay. The scenery is breathtaking and there are trails all over to the islands' steep cliffs and mountaintops. Also, this island is perfect if you love bird watching. There are thousands of birds that inhabit the island, and they seem to double in size especially during the summer. 

The Faroese cuisine. Ah, the joy of discovering new food culture to delight your taste buds. The Faroese food culture stems back from the traditional methods used by the first settlers of the islands a thousand years ago, and to this day, there's nothing like it anywhere in the world. The goodness of their food is evident by the recognition of KOKS, a local Faroese restaurant that just recently earned its first Michelin Star.

The Gjógv Village. This northern village on the island of Eysturoy is well worth your time and visit-- it's only inhabited by 50 people and upon arriving the charm of the whole place would surely settle your doubts. The serenity of the place is inviting-away from the usual hubbub of the modern world. And yet, the people there look happy. Hiking trails are also available in the area, to give you a more spectacular view of the Northern Atlantic.

The underwater life. Diving in the waters of the Faroe Islands is a special experience. The seabed is full of colorful fishes and the seaweed forests are simply amazing. Make sure to always have a buddy while diving, the waters, crystal clear they may be, are still pretty dangerous to take on by yourself.
