About Selvogur

Selvogur is a small community east of farm Herdisarvik in the Olfus County. This area is sparsely vegetated and fishing, mainly during winter, was difficult and dangerous because of the rugged coastline.

The community church, Strandarkirkja, as well as a lighthouse are on Cove Engilsvik. Farm Vogsosar was occupied by the reverends, who served the church, until the parish was abolished in 1907. On the property of farm Torfabaer is a small coffee shop and camping grounds.
