The Faroe Islands Create SheepView 360°

The Faroe Islands may be small, but they still want to take their space on the internet—specifically on Google Maps. Google's 360-degree virtual team has yet to make their way to the remote and rugged islands, which makes it hard for potential tourists to research the area. So the Faroe Island tourism board has come up with their own solution.

Meet Durita, the ambitious mind behind SheepView 360°

I decided the best way to make Google interested in coming to the Faroe Islands is simply to show them what they’re missing. I want to publish the most breathtaking images on street view. 

But some of the most beautiful places on the Faroe Islands are not accessible by car, so I decided we’re going to use something we have plenty of: sheep. In the Faroe Islands, there are twice as many sheep as people. The Faroe Islands even originally means “The Sheep Islands.” It is one of the only places on earth where they walk free in nature and they get all around the islands. 

The Faroe Islands are located between Iceland and Norway in the Norwegian Sea.

And she's not exaggerating when she says "breathtaking views." To see these views and learn more about the SheepView 360° project (and to see sheep videos!), visit their website. Thanks to Durita, the Faroe Islands are now certainly on our travel list. 

Hugs and bućas!
