Faroe Islands Wants Ambassadors
If you are lucky enough to have visited the Faroe Islands you know it is one of the world’s most unique tourism destinations. Located between Iceland and Denmark, the islands can be hard to reach, it is worth the effort. The Faroe Islands were voted the National Geographic’s #1 Island Ecotourism destination in 2007. You can get a sense of the island’s natural and cultural beauty on my video at
Now the Islands want you. With a small population and an even smaller tourism budget, the Trade and Tourism Council is turning to grassroots marketing strategies. They want people who have been to the Faroe Islands to talk about their experience and encourage others to visit. To support this objective, the Faroe Island Trade and Tourism Council has created a Facebook group called Faroe Enthusiasts and Ambassadors which swelled to 100 members within 48 hours of its launch.
