Vigur Island is just 2 km (1,2 ml) long and 400 m (1310 ft) wide. It is a green oasis in the blue waters of Isafjardardjup fjord. It is the home of a family of farmers who also live off isle's treasures – its birdlife.
- The island is the nesting place for a wealth of birds in spring. Arctic terns, black guillemots and puffins frequent its shores. The nests of ducks are gently protected.
- There are some relics of old farming methods that are well-preserved on Vigur. These include Iceland's only windmill, constructed in 1840 and used until 1917. An 8-oar, 200-year-old rowing boat is still in use, ferrying sheep to mainland.
- Vigur Island's houses date back to 19th century. Made of wood, pre-cut into shape in Norway, famous Viktoria House was erected on the isle in 1862. In 1993 it was restored by the National Museum of Iceland.
