The Faroe Islands ( / ˈ f ɛər oʊ / ; Faroese : Føroyar pronounced  [ˈfœɹjaɹ] ; Danish : Færøerne , pronounced  [ˈfæɐ̯øːˀɐnə] ), sometimes called the Faeroe Islands , is an archipelago between the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic , about halfway between Norway and Iceland , 320 kilometres (200 miles) north-northwest of Scotland . The islands are an autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark . [8] [9] [10] Their area is about 1,400 square kilometres (541 square miles) with a population of 50,322 in October 2017. [3]

The Faroes' terrain is rugged, and the islands have a subpolar oceanic climate (Cfc) : windy, wet, cloudy, and cool. Despite this island group's northerly latitude, temperatures average above freezing throughout the year because of the Gulf Stream .

In Danish , the name Færøerne contains the same elements, though øerne is the definite plural of ø (island).
