Vagar – Arrive in the Faro Islands and Relax in the Town of Vagar
The Faroe Islands offer secluded, untouched landscapes that showcase the captivating drama of nature. The coastlines resemble jagged puzzle pieces drifting apart while cottages shimmer with pastel hues and grass rooftops against the silver-streaked cobalt blue Atlantic Ocean. Tunnels and windy roads connect once-inaccessible hamlets at the remotest edges of the northern islands. As your flight descends into Vagar Airport, you will notice the short grass that blankets the countryside and is filled with flocks of fluffy sheep. The pasture shimmers with emerald hues against the black and gray rocks that protrude from the cliffs and mountains.
Your flight will land, and you will quickly exit the airstrip built in World War II by the British. Dew shimmers over the grass outside the landing strip as you pick up your rental car and venture into the village to find the island of Mykines soaring above the cobalt waters in the distance. Your Iceland tour agents will ensure a smooth ride as you take in the steep, rugged coastline that will demand your attention against the quiet, colorful homes found along the shores of Sorvagur. The prevalent breeze carries the briny aroma of the ocean, and you will be able to spot puffins circling over the water. The birds build their cliffs in niches along the coastal cliffs, and their orange beaks and feet contrast against the black and white plumage around their bellies and face.
