Size does matter!
They decided to limit the size and number of cruise ships that bring tourists into the country. Initiatives are also going to be taken to attract conscious tourists mainly, who are interested in nature and culture, rather than mass tourism. And all parts of the country must benefit from tourism. So, they will promote attractions all over the country to ease the pressure on nature and locals, at the most popular touristic spots.
Training and education for the tour operators are also on the menu, they need to know how to be competitive but above all good hosts. And a new special environmental fee for tourists will be introduced, that will fund environmental and nature projects on the islands.
They are a small country but the Faroese people never run out of ideas, huh? Just like the Google Sheep View or the Faroe Islands Google Translate, that were so brilliant that received several awards and countless headlines worldwide.
