Vagar Travel Guide

Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see



Vagar, pronounced something like Vau-er [au as in 'fraud'] is the island that holds the airport. This was developed from the old Royal Air Force [UK] station that was built during the second world war, when the island were occupied by the UK the day after Germany invaded Denmark.

Vagar contains the largest natural lake in the islands, which apparently gives rise to the shortest river in the world! It flows only feet before plunging down a vertical cliff into the sea.

Beyond the airport you reach first Sørvagur, from where the ferry to the celebrated bird island of Mykines runs and then to Bour and, within the last four years to Gasaladur.

At its other end the road goes into an undersea tunnel to Streymoy.
