Everything you need to know about where to stay during your trip to Átjan Wild Islands
As the capital city, Tórshavn is undoubtedly the best and most convenient place to stay on the islands.
Staying here, you’ll always be within walking distance of all the festival events at Átjan Wild Islands, as well as a whole host of shops, restaurants, bars, and the quintessential old town of Tórshavn.
There are plenty of Airbnb’s, hotels, and guest houses in and around Tórshavn, and despite the Faroe Islands being wild and remote, there’s a considerable amount of accommodation in the bustling small city, so you won’t be spoilt for choice, but do book in advance.
