Locations in the Faroe Islands
Glyvrar is situated in the middle of the eastern arm of Skálafjørður fjord. It is an old farmer’s village by the shore in the mild and grass-covered plains of south Eysturoy. The past century has seen a great deal of activity in the town as it has blended together with Saltangará and Runavík into a continuous 10-kilometre stretch of residential land. Skálafjørður is not only the longest fjord on the Faroe Islands, it is also home to one of the world’s largest fish farming companies, whose huge production facilities make up one of the country’s largest workplaces.
