Even though the weather is mostly cold with high humidity all year round, the best time to visit the Faroe Islands is from May to September. Late spring and early summer bring longer days, wildflowers, and Atlantic puffins. Warm and humid August sees the largest tourist crowds, so book a room in advance. Being less crowded and cheaper, autumn and winter months usually experience wind and freezing cold—great days for those in search of pleasure to be buffeted by rain and blast while being on your own and exploring the nature. December through February can be unbearably cold with days getting shorter, but this is when the northern lights will cheer your heart.
