The Journey takes us to the Southernmost island in the Faroe Islands Suðuroy, which has been out of the reach for many tourists until now.

The reason for this is first and foremost the two hour sail trip each way, and also the difficult bus connections on the island.

Suðuroy i known for it’s  spectacularly raw landscape, strong culture and nice people with quite a different dialéct than most other Faroese.
