Photo Essay: Faroe Islands

Travel photographer Jan Erik Waider (North Landscapes) recently ventured to the Faroe Islands to shoot winter landscapes in collaboration with the remote location’s Official Tourism Board. A collection of 18 rocky, volcanic islands, the Faroe Islands sit between Iceland and Norway in the North Atlantic Ocean and are home to less than 50,000 people. Waider spent a week photographing the islands’ grand and mountainous landscapes (including Cape Enniberg, one of the highest cliffs in Europe) and the deep blue waters of the Norwegian Sea. Naturally, the photographer brought along some AETHER gear (Cascade Rain Jacket in Insignia Blue and Beacon Shell in Distant Blue) to combat the cold, wet and windy weather he encountered while exploring and photographing much of what the stunning islands have to offer.

Check out photos from Waider’s epic trip to the Faroe Islands here.
