Our story

Mission

Tell Me North focuses on narrating stories to everyone – tourists and locals alike – wishing to deepen their understanding of The Faroe Islands. Our mission is to tell stories to enhance understanding.

Founders

The founders are Faroese locals but have a rich background in transitioning into other societies and learning about their deeper layers.

Having lived for 7+ years in China and 3+ years in Iceland, being a tourist has been our everyday life for the past decade. We have eagerly studied these countries and learnt to master their languages while analyzing their rich histories, businesses, and cultural ambiguities through literature.

Explaining and exploring these complexities became our job as we have made series of national radio shows in Faroese on both China and Iceland in the past couple of years. Additionally, we have slow traveled through Asia and Europe for the past 10 years, often visiting friends in obscure countries while applying the same eagerness to understand them.

Aim

Our tours aim to reveal the complex social structures in a seemingly very homogeneous society.

The Faroe Islands have a beguiling history with colonial powers such as Norway and Denmark colonizing the islands for the past 1000 years.

Still, the local culture has been left mostly untouched by outsiders for the past millennia often shocking the visiting modern, big-city dweller due to the contrasting cultural elements of modernity, economic growth, internationalism versus cultural traditionalism and a conservative outlook on faith still present in everyday life here.

Through Tell Me North, we now want to introduce stories from The Faroe Islands. These are the stories we wish to hear when we travel, made for travelers by fellow travelers in their local habitat.
