Join Cherokee in the Faroe Islands, a truly unique sailing area, with fantasy-like landscapes, dramatic cliffs and beautiful waterfalls.
The Faroe Islands are often called little Iceland, but in terms of sailing it is even better than Iceland – there are several islands and inlets where Cherokee can sail, even with bad weather!
The Faroe Islands is made up of 18 islands of volcanic geology. With a landscape that sits somewhere between Fair Isle and the Isle of Skye – rough, desolate and breathtaking cliff faces impress from both water and land. There is an abundance of wildlife, houses with grass roofs and, with a bit of luck, Cherokee may encounter whales or walruses.
This is a voyage of exploration, and Cherokee will take you to as many islands as possible (depending on the weather!). The breathtaking bird cliffs of Vestmanna will be a must-see, with its grottos where you are almost guaranteed sightings of Puffins, Guillemots, Fulmars and Kittiwakes.
If the conditions allow, Cherokee will sail past the impressive Stack Drangarnir, with its many surrounding rocks and islands. There are also optional sightseeing trips on land, such as a bus trip up to the stunning waterfall of Gasadalur, or a walk up to some of the viewpoints on the island where you can try and spot Cherokee in the harbour below. During the nights, the vessel will spend her time in port or at anchor, so every morning and evening guests can go ashore to explore – and as the Faroe Islands are so far north, there are very few dark hours so there’s plenty of time for it!

In 2008, Jouke Lemmer purchased Cherokee after spending years sailing his father’s ship amongst others. The youngest in our fleet, Cherokee was built in 2000 by award-winning boat builders J & J design. A year after buying her, Jouke refitted Cherokee radically, transforming her into a truly comfortable charter vessel, giving her a cutter rig and space for a generator so as to offer his passengers power and hot showers!
She is a fast, 16m vessel with a stunning teak deck and spacious cockpit, and she operates with two crew members (her skipper and the bosun/chef). Cherokee is exceptionally good at what she was built to do – pure sailing.
Jouke sails his ship all over the northern hemisphere, leaving Cherokee’s home port of Rotterdam in May and sailing over to the Channel Islands, the Faroe Islands and the Shetlands before making the journey back to Holland in October. Join him and his wonderful ship for the adventure of a lifetime – think exhilarating sailing, bucket list destinations and top notch hospitality.
