Hilton Garden Inn Faroe Islands
Hilton Opens Doors to a Destination Less Travelled with Debut of Hilton Garden Inn Faroe Islands
Now open – 130 Rooms
Tucked between Iceland and Norway in the North Atlantic Ocean, the Faroe Islands are an archipelago of 18 mountainous isles which boast unrivalled natural beauty, a thriving music scene and a rich, growing gastronomical culture. Located in the charming capital city of Torshavn, only five minutes from the beautiful Svartafoss Waterfall, Nordic House and the National Museum, Hilton Garden Inn Faroe Islands has 130 guestrooms, many of which offer scenic views of the Islands' beautiful natural surroundings.
Travel with Purpose
As part of its Travel with Purpose 2030 Goals, Hilton has committed to doubling its investment in social impact and cutting its environmental footprint in half by 2030. Hilton Garden Inn Faroe Islands has been built with sustainability at its core, helping the Islands to grow a sustainable, responsible tourism industry. Initiatives include:
- A heating system that uses energy from a local power plant. The plant captures leftover energy from a range of industries, including turning waste from the Islands' thriving salmon fishing industry into energy.
- Water-saving showers and motion-sensor taps to minimise water waste throughout the property.
- Electrical solutions such as LED lights and intelligent lighting (motion sensors) to further reduce the amount of energy consumed.
- Meat, fish and vegetables sourced from local suppliers. While the climate and soil of the Faroe Islands do not lend well to agriculture, many crops are grown locally using polytunnels, and will be used by the hotel's head chef to create seasonal dishes.
Guests have a variety of on-site dining options, including Hallartún, a French bistro style restaurant headed by acclaimed Chef Jakup Sumberg, who built his career in the kitchens of prestigious restaurants in Denmark and Sweden. Sumberg later moved to the Faroe Islands, where he has built extensive experience working with the abundance of local, seasonal produce that the Islands have to offer. Hallartún boasts stunning views and a menu packed with freshly prepared, locally sourced dishes, making the most of the island's plentiful supply of livestock and fresh fish straight from the North Atlantic.
Meanwhile, The Shop is open 24 hours for on-the-go guests seeking locally sourced sweet and savoury snacks, beverages and ready-to-cook meals.
Travellers can also take advantage of the hotel's wellness facility - one of the Islands' first - featuring a sauna, outdoor jacuzzi and a 24-hour fitness centre. The hotel also offers five flexible meeting rooms with enough event space to host up to 250 attendees.
Hilton Garden Inn Faroe Islands also features Hilton CleanStay, an industry-leading programme to deliver a new standard of cleanliness and disinfection across all of Hilton's hotels globally. Developed in collaboration with RB, maker of Lysol and Dettol, Hilton CleanStay allows guests to enjoy an even cleaner and safer stay, providing peace-of-mind from check-in to check-out. New standards include a Hilton CleanStay Room Seal to indicate that a room has not been accessed since being thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, increased frequency of cleaning of all public areas, and flexible housekeeping options.
