Houses and apartments
Houses and apartments for rent can be found on www.kitt.fo, on facebook here and on the web portal Torg here . It is advisable to consult a Faroese speaking person when looking for rents in papers and portals as advertisements will be in Faroese. Also, a local may be able to help you to get in contact with rental companies.
In most cases, it is necessary to pay a deposit in advance to the amount of one to three months’ rent which is returned when moving out if the apartment or house is in the same condition as when the tenancy started.
A variety of hotels, guesthouses and rented flats and houses are available for short-term accommodation.
