Varmakelda - the Warm Spring Festival

x

Traditionally, the Warm Spring Festival is held to celebrate that the warm spring near Fuglafjørður is at its warmest in the beginning of July – around 18 degrees Celsius.

Every two years, the regional rowing competition is held in Fuglafjørður Saturday on Varmakelda, but in 2020 the regional competition is held in Runavík. In 2021, the regionals are held in Fuglafjørður again.
