The Faroe Islands have some of the most beautiful roads in the world.
But unlike almost all other parts of Europe, they don’t exist on Google Street View…
Durita Dahl Andreassen in an attempt to convince Google to map the islands themselves, decided to create her own version of Street View – the Sheep View 360.

It is impossible to describe what it feels like driving through the green valleys and up the mountains, or alongside the ocean, surrounded by steep drops and tall cliffs. It’s an experience like no other.
The Faroe Islands may be rugged and remote but this collection of 18 islands in the North Atlantic. They also provide some of the world’s most magical landscapes.
I gently placed a 360˚ camera, powered by a solar panel, on the back of a sheep that would take photographs as the animal freely grazed the open hillsides of the Faroe Islands. Photos are then transmitted back to my mobile phone so that I can upload them to Google Street View myself, finally putting the Faroes on the map in a very unique way!
Andreassen says: “The Faroe Islands may be rugged and remote but this collection of 18 islands in the North Atlantic also provide some of the world’s most magical landscapes and it is time that this hidden Nordic nation is revealed to the world.”
