Sørvág village has about 970 Inhabitants. The fishing industry is the main industry, but also some of the villagers work at the airport.
During World War II Sørvágur was home to the British Royal Engineers, which lived Uppi á Mýruni. They built all the main infrastructure in Sørvágur including Vágar Airport, the harbour in Sørvág, Niðaraveg (the main road to the harbour) and several bridges. To accomplish this they had to move entire houses to other locations. Some of the houses got a corner cut off, in order, to get the big material through the village.
The opportunities to explore Vágar are endless from Sørvágur. You will find a lot of helpful informations on www.mykines.fo
