Day 1 & 2 - In Copenhagen we will spend two days doing photo walks around this fabulous city of bicycles. Canal boat tours and long photo walks will provide us a great insight of why this has been voted one of the best cities in the world to live.
Day 3 - On our first day on the island of Vagar we shall photograph 3 key locations as pictured above and below. From the village of Bøur is a village in the Sørvágur Municipality of the Faroe Islands, 4 km west of Sørvágur, with a population of 75 is where you can get this view. From Bøur to Gandasalur is a 10 minute drive. They have recently marked the cliff top walk to the cascading Mulafossur Waterfall to avoid accidents. If some torrential rain has come and high tide is hitting the coastline you can get some atmospheric shots. In the village of Sandavagur you can take short walk along the cliff face to see the witches finger.
Day 4 - On the island of Streymoy our 3 key locations will be Saksun, Vestmanna & Tjornuvik. All with their own charm and difference.
Day 5 - Eysturoy Island 3 key locations will be Elduvik, Funnigur & Eidi via Gjogv. Depending on the amount of rainfall waterfalls can be found everywhere along our long and winding roads through the treeless mountains. Many small villages also provide picturesque shots of the small fishing boats.
Day 6 - On the Islands of Kalsoy, Vidoy and Burdoy we will focus on some locations that require at least a 2 hour return hike and a ferry ride well worth the effort. Most other locations are are reachable by car and a short walk.
Day 7 - Torshavn will be our base where we will also explore the culinary delights of Faroe Islands salmon and lamb cuisine. The old town and the harbour are also worth a photo walk through the small city and surrounding areas where the only trees can be found as most of The Faroe Islands are tree-less.
Day 8 & 9 - Back to Vagar Island we look at hiking the 8 hour return trek to Drangarnir or take a ferry to Mykines for the day to look at the possibility of seeing Puffin Birds.
Day 10 - On our last day on the Faroe Islands we will look at going back to some areas easily reachable by car to shoot at a different time of day and possibly new angles not previously thought of. Our flight back will be in the early afternoon to Copenhagen.
