Vigur is an island in the Ísafjardardjúp fjord in Western Iceland, offshore from villages such as Hamar, Kobleinseyri and Trod. It is the second largest island in the fjord, and it is filled with bird life, being a nesting ground for Puffins, terns, guillemots and several other species. There’s an historic building on the island known as the Viktoriuhus that acts as a small museum of items from the Westfjords Folk Museum. To reach Vigur there are trips by boat from Isafjordur during the summer months. The family living there bases its livelihood mainly on tourism, and making collections of eggs, together with puffin hunting.

The island has a well-deserved reputation for bird watching and should be a must on any itinerary. Vigur is home to puffins, black guillemot, Arctic terns, eider ducks and other birdlife species. The beautiful landscape conveys a sense of timelessness. Although Vigur is the second largest island in Isafjordur Bay, it only has five inhabitants – a farmer and his family. They will welcome you in their relaxed easy manner and make you feel at home. You can take a leisurely walk around the island and see Iceland's only windmill. Prior to heading back, you can visit the smallest post office in Europe and send home a postcard.

The inhabitants have, throughout the ages, worked hard to protect, nurture and grow the Common Eider – Sea ducks - breeding grounds. A stone wall with shelters for the Common Eider dates back more than 200 years. The effort needed to build this speaks volumes about the value of the Common Eider for the locals. The island also has another two hundred year-old relic that can still be used if needed. This is the boat “Vigur Breiður” a boat rowed by eight rowers and used for fishing and ferrying goods and sheep.
