Tour the Faroe Islands with a remote tourism tool

Due to travel restrictions, the Faroe Islands created a way for people anywhere in the world to explore their islands as virtual tourists through the eyes of a local.

“The local is equipped with a live video camera, allowing people to not only see views from an on-the-spot perspective, but also to control where and how they explore using a joypad to turn, walk, run or even jump!

Just like a real-life computer game, the main player will control the moves of the Faroese islander, who will not only explore locations on foot, but also take to the skies by helicopter, giving virtual visitors a bird’s eye perspective on our beautiful island nation’s steep grassy slopes, our 80,000 sheep and our unspoilt, wild and natural countryside.”
