Busses and Ferries
Public transport around the islands is efficient and wallet-friendly as ferries are government-subsidized and can cost as little as DKK 15. If you purchase multi-day Travel Cards (DKK 500 for 4 days), they can be used on all buses and ferries, with the exception of the one to Mykines. The travel card can be purchased at the SSL main office at the harbour in Tórshavn.
If you have the time to travel according to the pace of the timetables, you won’t even need to rent a car.
City busses in Tórshavn
The city of Tórshavn has made it very easy for its residents and visitors to travel with the city bus and you can find the bus schedule here.
You can also find the route by using Google Maps.
If taking a helicopter ride is on your must-do list, the Faroe Islands might be the best place to finally cross it off. Not only are the views wonderful, but helicopter travel is subsidized by the government so that locals can live on some of the archipelago’s more remote islands. The helicopter subsidy is a community initiative, so it is only possible to do a one-way trip (and return using a ferry). The helicopter needs to be booked online beforehand.
