The traditional industries of fishing, paper-making, shipbuilding, and textiles, have been overtaken by the oil industry since discovery of North Sea oil in the 1970s. Aberdeen’s heliport is one of the busiest in the world. Off the north coast of mainland Scotland, Orkney has been settled for at least eight thousand years.

The northwestern shores of Eysturoy and Streymoy islands boast some of the Faroes’ most spectacular coastlines and superb hiking opportunities. Towering cliffs, waterfalls, sea stacks, and rocks seemingly pulled from the ocean floor are scattered among picturesque coastal communities like Saksun, Gjogv, and Tjornuvik. The uninhabited island of Tindhólmur may offer the single most breathtaking view in the Faroes.

Surtsey was declared a nature reserve for the study of ecological succession in 1965—just two years after it erupted from the sea floor. The volcanic mound has the distinction of being one of the world’s newest islands, having emerged over the course of three and a half years. In the first spring after Surtsey appeared above the sea surface, seeds and other plant parts were found washed up on the newly formed shore. Vestmannaeyjar lies off the south coast of Iceland and comprises fourteen islands in addition to a number of rocks and skerries.
