Adventure Weddings & Eloping in the Faroe Islands Hotel Options

Choosing where you will stay while eloping in the Faroe Islands is an exciting decision!  However, you likely need to begin by figuring out what island you will begin on so the adventure weddings & eloping in the Faroe Islands schedule is doable from there.  Many of our Faroe Islands elopement couples choose to stay on the main land.  In fact, one of our favorite hotels is right there in the capital of Tórshavn.  Hotel Føroyar is a lovely hotel which sits above the downtown.

Actually Tórshavn itself is very nicely base for our hiking elopements in the Faroe Islands main land as it is very central to everything.  For instance, it is minutes away from the helicopter launching area and the harbor if wanting to explore the outer islands too!  The islands are also filled with plenty of options for bed & breakfasts and summerhouses available to rent while eloping in the Faroe Islands.
