Hilton is opening a hotel in the Faroe Islands.
Full details are on hilton.com here. The opening date is pencilled in for 20th October.
“Rest well at our new hotel in Torshavn, just five minutes from the beautiful Svartafoss Waterfall, Nordic House, and the National Museum of the Faroe Islands. There’s plenty of shopping, natural areas, and restaurants within a few minutes, and you can get around easily with a bus stop outside our doors. Our on-site restaurant features local produce and is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.”
Whilst technically part of Denmark, the Faroe Islands are actually very close to the UK. Here is a map, courtesy of Wikipedia Commons:
According to visitfaroeislands.com, Atlantic Airways – the official carrier of the island – operates 1-hour non-stop flights from Edinburgh to the Faroe Islands twice a week, on Thursdays and Sundays. Flights resume from mid October.
