The Faroe Islands are situated midway between Iceland and Norway, and represent verdant, rugged volcanic archipelago of eighteen islands.
The Faroe Islands and the surrounding shelf area are the remnants of a large subaerial continental flood-basalt plateau which was formed from Palaeocene and Eocene, (62-54 Ma). Countless volcanic eruptions built up the huge basalt plateau that covered almost the entire Faroe–Rockall region, together with the southeastern part of Greenland. Each basalt lava flow of today’s Faroe Islands represents one volcanic eruption during that time period.
In Quaternary, especially, during the last few million years alternating glacial and interglacial periods have sculpted the landscape and the flat basaltic plateau was subjected to erosive forces and transformed their present-day shape. The landscape is dominated by deep valleys and fiords, steep valley sides and sharp mountain peaks.
