The eighteen Faroe Islands vary greatly in size and cover a total area of almost 1,400 square kilometres . The smallest one is Lítla Dímun, which is little more than a rock sticking out of the sea. Streymoy is the largest island of almost 375 sq. km and site of the capital, Tórshavn. The road and communications network on the islands is impressive and makes travelling both easy and pleasant.
The islands of Streymoy and Eysturoy which are connected by a bridge, form the mainland of the cluster with frequent ferry services to almost all parts of the country. Some smaller, islands can be reached by ferry from larger neighbouring ones. Three of the six most northerly islands are collectively known as Norðoyggjar and those are inter-connected by causeways.
