Today you could take the passenger ferry to the small island of Nolsoy, or the car ferry to Sandoy - the Saga Island which feels as if it has a slower pace of life. Alternatively you could drive to Vagar and the village of Gasadalur which was once the most isolated in the islands until a tunnel allowed easier access to this charming village. Vagar is also home to the Faroes' largest lake with excellent walking trails, and the ferry to the much-photographed Mykines island. (B)
