Smyril Line (http://www.smyril-line.com/) operates an all year cruise and car ferry service by the big car ferry, Norrøna, with regular sailings to the Faroe Islands. In the summer time there is service twice a week. The Ferry continues onwards to Denmark Hirtshals from the Faroe islands. On Iceland the ferry departs from Seyðisfjörður on the east coast. It is the only ferry service with a scheduled services to Iceland.
Due to the recession, Smyril Line will NOT be operating to Scrabster or Bergen in 2009 or 2010. All passengers to/from the UK and Norway must now go via Denmark. Also the passage from/to Iceland is cancelled during winter season.
Getting to the Faroes by boat takes longer than by plane but has the advantage of allowing you to take your own vehicle. Single passage is priced between 54 Euro in off-season and 78 Euro in high season 2011.
For people arriving by yachts, there are several harbors around the islands. The best are found in the capital Tórshavn, Klaksvík, Tvøroyri, Vágur, Vestmanna, Sørvágur, Miðvágur, Runavík, and Fuglafjørður.
VÃ¡ga floghavn (http://www.floghavn.fo/De...). The Faroe Islands are served by one airport. The airport is on the island of VÃ¡gar. The location was chosen by the British during the occupation of the islands during World War II. About 180,000 passengers fly to and from the airport every year. VÃ¡gar is connected to the largest island Streymoy on which the capital TÃ³rshavn is situated by a sub-sea tunnel. A bridge connects Eysturoy to Streymoy. There are buses to Torshavn and other major cities; the schedules are aligned more or less with the arrival of all flights. The price to TÃ³rshavn is summer 2006 around â¬14. You might need to change buses if you are going to Klaksvik. Check the schedule with the driver, there might be a lot of waiting time.
Atlantic Airways (http://www.atlantic.fo/), connects the Faroes with a couple of chosen cities in Scandinavia. The Faroes are accessible by regular commercial air service from Copenhagen 3 times a day, Oslo and Stavanger twice a week in the summer time and ReykjavÃk twice a week. It also flies to London. It is the only airline with a scheduled service to the Faroes.
Be aware that summer fog is a problem when flying to the Faroes in the summer months. The planes cannot land in this weather and will often divert to Iceland where you will stay until the weather clears. This also means that flights out of the Faroes can be disrupted too. Allow yourself a few days either side of your visit to the Faroes in case of flight delays.
