The Faroe Islands Podcast
Faroe Islands news, culture, politics, and music.

The Faroe Islands will witness a total solar eclipse in just one month, but this isn't the first time an eclipse like this has been visible in the Faroes. This week, we talk to three Faroese women who have childhood memories of the 1954 solar eclipse.

While it has been widely reported that all the hotel rooms have been booked in the Faroes for years, there are still some places to stay. To learn more about that you can check out Visit Faroe Islands' eclipse page, and the site for Faroese travel agency 62N.
