Despite being situated in the middle of the North Atlantic, the Faroe Islands boast regular and frequent services by sea and air to several neighbouring countries. These connections comprise both passenger and cargo services. Furthermore, the domestic infrastructure, both the physical and communications infrastructure, is one of the finest in the world.
With 960 km of mostly two-lane asphalt road, eighteen tunnels, two sub-sea tunnels, and a well-built bridge connecting the two largest islands, the road infrastructure in the Faroes is almost unmatched. Remote settlements are linked to the main area with scheduled ferry and helicopter services.
Public domestic transport is provided by the official transport company, Strandfaraskip Landsins, which operates a comprehensive network of ferry and bus services connecting all villages and towns in the Faroes.
The Faroes have a range of harbours with modern facilities for cargo, fisheries, offshore and oil exploration, and cruise ships. Several of these are ISPS certified. For further information, consult the website of Landsverk (in Faroese).
