Perched above the Faroese capital of Tórshavn and cloaked in verdant moss, Hotel Føroyar seamlessly blends into the natural landscape of the Faroe Islands, with magnificent views of the city below and out towards the ocean where you can set sail on a vintage schooner to Nólsoy Island. 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 hotel’s 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.
Embark on a boat trip around Drangarnir, Tindhólmur and Múlafossur waterfall for the day, spending your evening enjoying a private dining experience with personal chef, Gutti. In the morning, discover the local town of Tórshavn on mountain bikes or join local fisherman to try your hand at sport fishing. Meet a Faroese fashion designer at a knitwear workshop and learn about how traditional clothing and innovative fashion design meet, in this curious coastal town.
