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

What's not included?
Everything above is included in your festival ticket, but you’ll need to think about adding these extras to complete your trip:
Can I buy a race ticket only?
Yes, you can purchase a race only ticket, which will give you race entry, including a finish line meal, and access to the prize ceremony. Please note, with a race only ticket, you will not be able to access the after-parties, live music, or adventure film screenings.
We're proud to have created a magical full festival experience, which includes five days of adventure so we'd really recommend buying a full Race + Festival Ticket!
When does the festival start and finish?
Átjan Wild Islands starts with a Welcome Party at around 7pm on the Wednesday 6th September and runs until late at night on the Sunday of the festival week. We'd recommend staying Wednesday until Monday in the Faroe Islands to make the most out of your festival experience.
When are the mountain races?
The races taking place on Saturday 9th September. Please head to the Trail Race FAQ page for more details on the races.
I can't make it anymore, can I have a refund?
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.
Where is the festival held?
Átjan Wild Islands is in the capital and largest town of the Faroe Islands, Tórshavn. The mountain races take place outside of Tórshavn and the exact routes will be released early 2023.
