The flights to the Faroe Islands from the United States have at least one stop in between, so the duration of the flights varies a little bit. The only airport in the Faroe Islands with commercial flights is the Vágar Airport (FAE) in Sørvágur. Journeys from US airports like John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York, Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD), and Dulles International Airport (IAD) in Washington D.C. take at least 7h and 30min until landing in Sørvágur. The routes taking off out of Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) may be the shortest from the United States, taking approximately 6h and 50min. For those with departures from the west coast of the United States, it takes about 11h and 10min to arrive in Sørvágur from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), 10h and 40min from San Francisco International Airport (SFO), and only about 8h and 55min from Seattle/Tacoma International Airport (SEA).

However, various cheap flight options get you to Vágar Airport in Sørvágur with only one layover in between. For instance, Icelandair with Atlantic Airways operate flights a few days a week out of Seattle/Tacoma International Airport, Chicago O’Hare International Airport, Dulles International Airport, Boston Logan International Airport, and John F. Kennedy International Airport, with only one stopover in Reykjavik Keflavik International Airport (KEF) in Iceland. SAS Scandinavian Airlines has routes with only one layover in Copenhagen Airport (CPH) out of San Francisco International Airport, Los Angeles International Airport, Chicago O’Hare International Airport, Boston Logan International Airport, and Dulles International Airport. There are also seasonal tickets, which don’t operate year-round, with United Airlines and Atlantic Airways from Chicago O’Hare International Airport and Dulles International Airport, stopping in Edinburgh Airport (EDI).
The smoothest and most convenient way of getting around the Faroe Islands is by renting a car. The 18 islands are connected by bridges and tunnels. The Faroe Islands are known for enjoying the outdoors, hikes, and coastal cliffs. Traveling by car is the ideal way to reach the most remote spots. For instance, getting around between two of the top Faroe Islands attractions like the Sørvágsvatn ocean cliffs and Mykines island, you can drive your car rental to the Port in Sørvágur just a short ride away and hop on a ferry to Mykines island. Nonetheless, there is also public transportation around some of the larger towns. Almost all villages are connected by buses or ferries, however, the departure times are not frequent, and you will be limited by the routes and schedules. There aren’t any domestic planes to catch to get around either since there is only one public airport in the Faroe Islands, in Sørvágur.
Yes, United States citizens must travel with a valid passport to enter the Faroe Islands. The passport must not expire within six months beyond the planned exit date from the Faroe Islands in Denmark. The visa requirements are those for entering Denmark.

However, they are required to have a few empty passport visa pages for the entry stamps.
