1. Faroe Islands, Kingdom of Denmark
Located in the North Atlantic Ocean above Scotland, between Norway and Iceland, the Faroe Islands consist of an archipelago of 18 volcanic islands. Some of these have as few as nine inhabitants, but capital Torshavn has around 13,000. Cruise lines including Silversea and Saga tend to visit the area in the spring and summer months, but even them temperatures are usually between 4 and 11°C. These stunning islands are perfect for anyone wanting to bask in some rugged wildlife taking in coastal cliffs and a huge variety of birdlife – puffins in particular are populous.
