Client Testimonials


Per openly shared his passion, knowledge of the Faroe Islands with us. Because of strong winds and rains, we couldn't hike on two different days, but with his contacts and knowledge, Per was able to provide other interesting options for us. I very much enjoyed his sense of humor!

Through sharing his country with us, Per made this very special trip even more so. He was exceedingly knowledgeable about a full range of topics, and was generous with his time and attention.
