There is no way around it; postage is expensive from a location as remote as the Faroe Islands. However customers outside the islands are not charged the 25% sales tax we have here so the total cost is about the same as what a local customer would have to pay.
There are weight breaks for 250gram, 500gram and 1kg. From there on it is 1kg increments. The closer you get to a weight break the better value you get from the postage. Adding another kit may not increase the postage so why not order one for/with a friend? The shipping weight is shown on each product page and includes packaging. The postage is calculated in the shopping cart so you will always know the cost before going to the payment step.
All orders are sent via airmail using Posta - the Faroese postal service. They are routed via Denmark for further distribution. The service is reliable but minor delays happen from time to time when the weather is so bad that flights can't land or take off. Storm or fog are the main reasons for delay. There is no tracking available on airmail. Tracked shipment would have to be via courier service and could easily cost £100 or more for single kit.
In order to keep shipping weight to a minimum, printed instructions are not included. They can be downloaded from the product pages and are in PDF format.
Postage is calculated automatically for you based on shipping weight.
