The West Nordic Region

Three Astonishing Countries

The West Nordic region is one of the world’s most inspiring destinations, offering three astonishing countries;
 Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands.

Each country has its own character, culture, traditions and history, but they share incredible nature, a warm welcome and an unlimited range of things to see and do. The West Nordic region is something special. Situated in the North Atlantic, the area’s geographical remoteness has preserved an authentic world of wonderful cultural traditions and natural phenomena.

It’s a region full of things to discover. The adventures are awaiting.

Land of fire and ice

Iceland is a country of extreme geological contrasts. Widely known as “The land of fire and ice,” Iceland is home to some of the largest glaciers in Europe, and some of the world’s most active volcanoes.

Iceland is also the land of light and darkness. 

Long summer days with near 24-hours of sunshine are offset by short winter days with only a few hours of daylight.

Unfathomable beauty

Adrift in the whirling rhythmic North Atlantic Sea, a different world lingers. A place like no other on earth. 

An idyllic escape, peacefully set among lush green valleys, imposing basalt cliffs, grand treeless moorlands and waterfalls plunging directly into the wind whipped ocean. 

Unfathomable beauty, mysteriously tucked away like a figment of a child’s imagination.

World's largest island

There’s something about experiencing Greenland’s majestic landscapes from the perspective of a dog sled that snowmobiling or a ski tour simply cannot match. 

Maybe it is the slower pace that gives plenty of time to enjoy the surroundings or maybe it is the combination of sled dogs panting plus the rhythmic beat of their large paws, a sound that is suddenly magnified against a backdrop of pure silence.

No matter where you roam on the Faroe Islands, you are bound to bump into a sheep or two. These curious four-legged creatures are all over 🐑🐏

In fact, there’s an old tale that the Faroese sheep have longer legs on one side of their body because they spend most of their lives walking high up in the mountains. Even on the most vertical of cliff edges that drop straight down into the ocean.

The Faroese sheep have adapted to the harsh weather through centuries, making the wool unique and especially suitable for a warm knitted sweater.
