Faroe Islands pioneering sustainable tourism: Closing doors to tourists, opening hearts to volunteers

In a refreshing twist on tourism, the Faroe Islands, nestled in the North Atlantic, are redefining their approach. Once a year, they shut their doors to traditional tourists and open their arms to volunteers eager to help preserve their natural beauty.

This “Closed for Maintenance” concept has been a resounding success, with volunteers from around the world repairing paths, improving infrastructure, and ensuring the sustainability of the islands’ appeal. It’s a beacon of hope for sustainable tourism, emphasizing community benefits over sheer numbers, all while respecting the environment and local culture. The Faroe Islands show us a brighter, more responsible way to travel.
