The main islands are connected by bridges and tunnels. There is also a public bus and ferry service, but no railways. Self drive is easy.
Three airlines have regular flights to Faroe islands: Scandinavian airlines from Copenhagen, Icelandair from Reykjavik, and Atantic airlines fly from Edinburg and Paris.
Although only 54.000 people live on the islands, and they speak their own language, similar to Icelandic, but Danish is the offical language. The people are of Scandinavian and Celtic origin and most people speak fairly good English.
Available accommodation in Faroe islands has imporved a lot the past years due to more demand from people that want to visit. In Tórshavn, the capital, are couple of 4* hotels, some beautiful boutique hotel and unique apartments in old renovated houses.
