Our destination

Flying over the North Atlantic, we bid farewell to the Icelandic landscapes and set our course toward the remote beauty of the Faroe Islands. The flight from Keflavik to Vagar will offer breathtaking views of rugged cliffs, dramatic coastlines, and picturesque fjords along the way.

Vagar is a small island in the Faroe Islands, an autonomous territory within the Kingdom of Denmark. The island is located in the North Atlantic Ocean, and it is known for its breathtaking natural beauty and picturesque landscapes. Vagar is home to Vagar Airport, the main airport serving the Faroe Islands.

Vagar Airport (IATA: FAE, ICAO: EKVG) , located on the island of Vagar, serves as the main gateway to the Faroe Islands. However, don’t let its scenic surroundings fool you – Vagar Airport presents its own unique set of challenges. With a relatively short runway, careful attention to approach speed and precise braking control is essential for a safe landing. It is the main operating base for Faroese national airline Atlantic Airways and, for a brief period during 2006, was also the base for the low-cost airline FaroeJet.
