Faroe Islands is on a latitude that is 62 degrees north of the Earth’s equatorial plane, which crosses the North Atlantic Ocean. The weather can therefore behave a bit rough in the wintertime, when the storms hits the eighteen enchanted and beautiful islands.
The daylight is also a part that makes the winter period, something completely different then the summer period in Faroe Islands. In the cold December months, the sun rises late as 09:40 and around five and half hours later, the sun goes under the horizon. During the longest summer days, the sun shines over the Faroe Islands 19 hours and 45 minutes, which makes the days almost four times longer!
Faroe Islands has a cool or maybe more correctly a “mild” temperate winter, where the temperature normally goes low as -5°C, but has been measured low as -12,3°C (DMI). When the beautiful white snow falls on the ground, it can transfer the remote and dramatic winter landscape, into a mystical fairytale land.
The atmosphere can be very nice and cozy throughout the winter season, and is spectacular in the Christmastime and New Year eve. Just remember to take plenty of warm clothes with you, and you will not have any problem with the unpredictable winter weather.
