The Faroe Islands
are part of Denmark and are an archipelago of 18 islands, untouched, unexplored, still wild. The islands are located far from Denmark, in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, between Iceland and the Scandinavian peninsula. They are rich in water, green, ideal for bird watching, fishing, horseback riding and discovering fishing villages. The Faroe Islands are very windy, wet and quite cold, although the ocean mitigates the climate and prevents temperatures from dropping below freezing.

Denmark's climate is temperate from the Atlantic waters, not excessively cold during the winter despite the latitude and without major climatic differences between north and south, east and west. During the winter in Copenhagen, temperatures rarely drop below freezing point and during the day stabilize around 2-3°C. Winds and rainfall, on the other hand, are constant(although the latter are not abundant) and make the perception of cold more pronounced. During the spring winds decrease slightly in intensity and pure precipitation, temperatures rise and average 10 ° C daily. Days lengthen and the sun sets on the horizon much later than in winter.
During the summer, rains continue to fall, in the form of showers, and temperatures soar to 20 ° C maximum in the months of July and August. Nights are cool with temperatures hovering around 13 ° C. With autumn, more frequent showers reappear and clouds become daily, temperatures begin to drop and days are drastically shorter.
