Unbelievable and unexplored. Visiting Europe's best kept secret has just gotten tougher. The Faroe Islands has announced that it will close all major tourists site during the last weekend of April. The decision to close has been taken by the authorities to help clean and maintain the major attractions in the Faroe Islands. Located in the middle of the Gulf Stream in the North Atlantic, this therapeutic destination is known to have more sheep than people.  

Last year, the number of tourists visiting the islands outnumbered the locals. Hence, the added importance of preserving the natural beauty of the archipelago has become doubly important. A workaround of 100 people will be permitted to enter the Faroe Island during the maintenance work to assist in it. They can join the Faroese Maintenance Crew to join the cleaning force. 

The volunteers will be required to pay for their flights to and out of the Faroe Islands but the rest of their travel expenses will be taken care of. This includes accommodation, food, transport, and a party at the end of the weekend to commemorate this momentous task. Working alongside locals, the volunteer force will work to build walking paths, signs and viewpoints. To join the this unique workforce, sign up here. If this year's event turns out to be a success, the authorities are prepared to make it an annual tradition.
