Video: Koks on the Faroe Islands The World's Most Remote Dining Destination

The Faroe Islands have become a popular tourist destination for food and nature lovers alike. The islands are technically owned by Denmark, but the setting is like nowhere else in Scandinavia. The landscape is filled with breathtaking sights such as waterfalls, gorges, mountains, puffins, and lighthouses, and the sea is filled with some of the world’s most delicious fish. If you’re a destination diner, like us, the main reason you’re visiting the Faroe Islands is probably to eat at restaurant Koks. That’s right – tucked away in this unspoiled, natural paradise is a two Michelin-starred restaurant, with chef Poul Andrias Ziska at the helm. This restaurant is one-of-a-kind, and indeed worth a special journey to the Faroe Islands.
