We started our day on the open ocean, crossing the North Atlantic from the Shetland Islands to the remote Faroe Islands. We were accompanied by Northern fulmars and other seabirds during breakfast and then enjoyed a joint talk about traditional folklore from our historian Karin and cultural specialist Claudia, and another talk about birds of prey from naturalist Zoey.

During lunch, we spotted land in the distance and got ready to explore the Faroe Islands. Some of us departed for long hikes along barren, windswept ridges with dramatic views overlooking vast fjords. Others decided to explore the town of Torshavn and the Faroe Island Museum. To wrap up the day, we enjoyed a lovely dinner back on National Geographic Endurance and made our way north toward the small village of Funningur.
