Franz Josef Glacier was high on our list of must-see locations in New Zealand, so we were really excited as we left Hokitika heading south-west. Unfortunately, our hopes for the stunning views soon plummeted as Franz Josef greeted us with dark skies and relentless rain. Would the glacier be even visible in these conditions? We didn’t know. But we had to find out.
Streymoy and Eysturoy are two of the largest islands of the entire Faroe archipelago and exploring them properly would take weeks, if not months. After all the other places we visited during our Faroe Islands trip, we just didn’t have enough time remaining to give them any sort of justice, especially with 2 straight days of miserable weather and non-stop rain that pretty much grounded us. So instead of trying to come up with a comprehensive guide to these islands, I will just list a few locations that in my opinion are definitely worth checking out, especially for photographers.
