The captain of the Norrona is about to dock his ship at Torshavn, the capital of the Faroe Islands. It's a difficult maneuver - and he's doing it without either a pilot or a tugboat to guide him.
Perhaps no other ferry can handle the rough waters, grueling pace, and tough maneuvers that Norrona faces week after week. This mighty ship rises to the challenge 365 days a year, transporting much needed cargo to and from Iceland, Denmark, and the Faroe Islands, while bringing high seas adventures to her adrenaline-seeking passengers. Follow the crew aboard one of Norrona's roundtrip voyages as they travel to spectacular lands and fight deadly waters to deliver big payloads and even bigger thrills.
