Vagar Overview

Vagar is the name of both an island in the Færoes and the Færoes airport, which is on it. Buses connect with the capital, Torshavn, on Streymoy, passing through an undersea tunnel. It is a pleasant little airport used exclusively by Atlantic Airways, the Færoese airline.

The island is highly scenic with Bøur as pleasing a village as you will find anywhere with some turf roofs. From Bøur one of the newest tunnels in the Færoes leads to the tiny settlement of Galasatur. From both the seascapes are superb. The island of Mykines, famed for its bird life is reached from Vagar.
