Welcome to The Northern Islands

The "Northern Isles" is a term used to describe the six islands of Fugloy, Svínoy, Viðoy, Borðoy, Kunoy and Kalsoy, which makes up the north eastern corner of the Faroe Islands.

These six islands are very different and each has its own distinctive character. Together they make up a unit around the main town of Klaksvík. Here you will find a dramatic countryside, idyllic villages and a people who live in close connection with the beautiful, yet dangerous ocean.

Successful experiments with new fish pump
In connection with the increased level of mackerel fishing in the Faroe Islands this year, some fishing vessels have trialled a new type of fish pump, which allows them to pump fish more quickly from the trawl into the shipload. The purpose of this innovation is to increase the quality of the fish, and based on the results of the first period of trials, it appears that this is working very well.

A world-class swimmer
When the continental competition between Europe and USA took place just before Christmas, the Faroese swimmer, Pál Joensen, not only won the gold medal but also set a new Nordic record in 800 metres freestyle with the time 7:36.24. This is an outstanding achievement when taking into consideration that 800 metres is not Joensen's favourite discipline.
