Faroe Islands – Rugged Nature in the North Atlantic

June 29, 2023 @ 7:00 pm EDT

The Faroes are a group of eighteen remote islands settled by Vikings over a thousand years ago. Their volcanic origin, and later erosion by retreating ice age glaciers, has given the islands an austere beauty of steep ridges, sharp pyramidal peaks, and deep rounded valleys. Carpeted in myriad shades of green from summer rains and winter snowmelt, the islands are filled with cascading waterfalls and the verdant fields dotted with turf-roofed wooden houses, ancient churches, and lots of gently grazing sheep. Barry Pell recently traveled to nearly all the Faroe Islands, photographing the landscape and meeting its people. He left with the impression that the wild, wet and windy Faroes are the most beautiful of all the places he’s traveled.

This program is made possible by the generous support of the Walpole Public Library.
