Faroe Islands weather overview

Looking at the map, you might expect the weather on the Faroe Islands to be horrific since they lie right in the middle of the stormy Atlantic Ocean. Fortunately for their inhabitants, the waters which surround them are warmed by the Gulf Stream and this keeps temperatures moderately high, although sunshine is minimal in the summer months and clouds and rain abound.

What to pack for Faroe Islands weather

Take light to warm clothing for the summer and prepare for snow if visiting during the winter months. You are unlikely to need your sunglasses here: a windcheater will probably prove more useful.
