Sørvágsfjørður Fjord Travel Guide

By Verified Expert

Sørvágsfjørður is a fjord on Vágar island in the Faroe Islands. The fjord is named after the village Sørvágur, which sits in the bottom of the fjord.

Boats to Mykines island depart from the Sørvágur marina. You will also reach the sea arch Drangarnir when sailing along Sørvágsfjørður. At the end of the fjord lies the impressive islet Tindhólmur.

Flights to the Fare Islands descend along Sørvágsfjørður as the only airport in the Faroe Islands, Vágar Airport, is located next to the fjord. Air traffic to the Faro Islands also arrives from the opposite side of the runway where Lake Leitisvatn sits.
