I'm planning to go to the Faroe Islands next year. I'm only really at the very early stages of looking into it and want a bit of very basic advice. From the UK, what is the best way to get there? It seems that most flights go through Copenhagen and could be the cheapest option compared to going via Iceland. I was originally going to try and combine the trip with a visit to Iceland but it looks as though it would be easy enough to spend a week there. However, it's clearly not a cheap place to go to so time may be governed by how much cash I'll be spending. I suppose my questions are,
what's the best/quickest/cheapest way to get there?
When is the best time to go in terms of things to see/price/chances of getting stranded?
Is self catering the most cost effective option?
Any help would be useful thanks.
