Take advantage of London Gatwick's new time-limited route from London Gatwick to the Faroe Islands this summer.

From 23rd June until 11th August 2020 direct flights will be operating from Gatwick to this enchanting and often over-looked archipelago of 18 islands in the North Atlantic.

Renowned for its breathtaking scenery, bird watching, hiking and friendly locals, this fly-drive sees you based in the charming capital of Torshavn with the freedom to explore the well-connected islands - linked by bridges, causeways, sub-sea tunnels and ferries. Nowhere is too far to visit in a day from Torshavn, and the views as you drive around are part of the attraction.

Accommodation outside of Torshavn is available but more limited so please ask your Regent specialist if you would like to arrange accommodation for some nights on one of the other islands. As a fly-drive the itinerary is simply a suggestion and you are of course free to follow your own route, depending on your interests (and maybe the weather).

Flights operate year-round from Edinburgh or via Copenhagen.
