Having enjoyed travelling the world for many
years using Rough Guide, I stumbled across this publication
quite by accident and would highly recommend it to anyone interested
in visiting the region. The authors' passion for their subject is
quite evident in what is a thoroughly enjoyable read. What's more,
the quality of the photography is outstanding and enables you to
immerse yourself in the text and get a real feeling of actually
being there. Having never considered travelling to northern Europe
before, this book has inspired me to start making plans.
travellers' guide to Iceland and the Faroes
Carolyn on 27 March, 2023
As motor-caravanners, we have read about Paul and
Sheila's journeys for many years and gained much from the details on
their web site. They have, however, excelled themselves in this
excellent account of a five month journey in their camper through
the Faroes and Iceland.
This isn't a small guide book to tuck into your luggage, but a large
volume of over 500 A4 pages packed with photos and maps. It is
invaluable as something to read carefully before a trip, especially
if you wish really to appreciate your destination.
The book splendidly conveys the enthusiasm and determination of the
authors in travelling to explore and understand a region. It tells
the story of their journey, sharing the many discoveries along the
way, and illustrating the places, their spectacular scenery, wild
flowers and birds with copious photos, plus maps and diagrams.
The authors have managed to convey a real sense of the splendour of
these places, where travel can demand much effort and occasionally
discomfort, and we are left with a much greater sense of what
distinguishes the 'traveller' from the 'tourist'.
Essential reading for travellers and wild-life enthusiasts
Simpson on 8 March, 2023
This book is a fantastic read for those who are
planning a trip to Iceland or simply curious about the country. It's
packed with well-researched details, whatever your interests: bird
watching, wild-life, history, geology, volcanoes. You'll learn
plenty from reading these accounts of the travel experiences based
on the authors' personal experiences. It's well-written and brings
out all the details of this fascinating place. All the accompanying
photos make you feel you have been to Iceland just by reading the
book. I particularly like the maps which really do help you
understand the complex geography of Iceland. It's not a cheap book,
but certainly worth every penny; you'll get more than value for
money with all the information this book gives.
