The origin of the name Brandan

Hotel Brandan in Tórshavn is named after Saint Brendan (484 - 577), who was an Irish monk and the first named person to reach the Faroe Islands. St. Brendan, known as St. Brendan the Navigator, was an adventurer and he braved the high seas to explore islands and mainlands. In his logs St. Brendan recorded his journey to the Faroe Islands describing how he sailed from island to island and walked in the mountains. 


A unique art experience

A visit to Hotel Brandan is about more than world-class service, it is also a unique art experience. The striking pieces in bold colours created by Faroese artist Edward Fuglø for Hotel Brandan are an integral part of the hotel’s concept. 

Environmental efforts

Hotel Brandan in Tórshavn is constantly raising the bar for its eco-friendly policies and striving to minimise its environmental footprint. In 2020 we have achieved the Green Key certification – the hospitality industry’s international eco label. It is awarded to hospitality businesses that go the extra mile to protect the environment. 

In addition to Green Key, we focus on supporting local initiatives like Rudda Føroyar, the Faroese instalment of World Cleanup Day. It brings together local volunteers to free Faroese nature from rubbish and litter. 

Every time we need replacements or refurbishment at our hotel, we make a conscious effort to incorporate new green measures building on our robust sustainable foundation, in line with the Green Key criteria. 

Our objective is to continually optimise our routines and procedures, alongside our products and services. In order to reduce our environmental impact any new technical installations must be in line with the Green Key mindset. Furthermore, all our existing and future products must be environmentally friendly, We also seek to form active partnerships with community organisations working for the environment, We have set up a shared staff suggestion box for eco-friendly ideas.
