Átjan Wild Islands

The world's first trail running, adventure & music festival in the Faroe Islands

Welcome to Átjan Wild Islands

Lying volatile in the North Atlantic Ocean, 100km South East of Iceland, a puzzle of 18 islands forms knife edge ridges, rolling green hills scattered with grass-roof huts, and dramatic waterfalls that plunge off the jagged coastline. Welcome to Átjan Wild Islands.

  3. Any adventure activities you’d like to try

Átjan Wild Islands starts on Wednesday 31st August 2022, and runs until late at night on Sunday 4th September 2022.

The races taking place on Saturday 3rd September.

We're proud to have created a magical full festival experience, which includes five days of adventure. For that reason, only full festival tickets are available to purchase, and you cannot buy the race separately. 

As per our T&Cs at the time of your booking, we are not able to offer a refund if you can’t make it to the festival. If you are injured, please consider coming anyway. There is plenty to do outside of the races to enjoy the festival.

Átjan Wild Islands is in the capital and largest town of the Faroe Islands, Tórshavn. The mountain races take place outside of Tórshavn and details will be announced in Spring 2021.

 If you already have a festival ticket, you should receive a confirmation email from us confirming your attendance at Átjan Wild Islands 2022. You can log in to your Easol account here and add any extras (like return race transport) and check your tickets. Other than that, you don't need to do anything, but now is the time to be thinking about booking your accommodation and flights. Find out how to travel and where to stay, here.

Changing the name on your ticket

You must change the name of the booking to transfer your ticket to someone else, because names on tickets must match I.Ds at the gate in order to enter the festival site. 

To do this, the person you are selling the ticket to will need to get set up with an Easol account here https://myeasol.com/

Once this is done, please email hello@lovetrails.com to inform them of the name and e-mail address of the person you would like to transfer your booking to. There is a £10 admin fee to change a name on a ticket.

Changing a race distance on your ticket

Distances can be changed up until the deadline of 5th June 2022. This is subject to the number of entries per distance. If a race distance is full, we can add you to a waiting list and we'll let you know if a place becomes available. Please email sarah@atjanfestival.com using the subject RACE DISTANCE CHANGE and include your full name, email, and the distance you’d like to change to :)
