Dining Experience at KOKS.

Shortly after I booked our reservation, KOKs received its second Michelin star!

OKS is a restaurant that specializes in upscale Faroese cuisine. It is so well known among foodies that reservations for each night’s 26 seatings book out months in advance.  The Executive Chef is 29 year old Poul Andrias Zikas who is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in the culinary world.

Puffins on Mykines Island.

The moment I realized we could see puffins in the Faroe Islands, I knew I had to get to them!

Originally, I had planned for our time in the Faroe Islands to follow our time Scotland.  After thinking about that some, I realized that was not a good idea given that it would mean that we would be heading north as summer turns into fall and the weather would turn from cool to cold.  At the same time, it would lessen our chances of seeing these adorable creatures as they begin to return to sea in September.  So, I reversed the order of the trip and completely re-did the itinerary for this one day....and it was so worth the effort!
