Víkar, Faroe Islands
Víkar was founded in 1833 and belonged to the village of Gásadalur farther south. Even today a path still connects the two communities with each other. Even though the landscape was very favorable, Víkar had already been abandoned by 1910, because it was too difficult to reach. It shared this fate with its former neighboring community of Slættanes, which had also been founded during the same period.
The name Víkar means coves in Faroese, a name with has similar meaning is held by Island Vágar.
