What is the main language spoken in the Faroe Islands?

From what I can tell, most people speak English. That, however, is not the main language, that is Faroese. Danish is also a language you will hear often. Another tip from the Faroe Island visitor website is to not bring too much cash to exchange because credit cards are accepted pretty much all over the island. The site notes, that while most places will take credit cards, they state Visa and Mastercard, while almost no one accepts American Express.

No info is available as to how much the flights will cost as the tickets are not on sale just yet. When you do book your tickets, know that you will be fairly close to places like Denmark, Iceland and Norway, just in case you want to do a few side trips.

Why not? The islands are pretty expansive and great if you love the outdoors. Could you find 6 or 7 days' worth of things to do? Most definitely, and it will be so easy to just go there from Stewart Newburg.
