Skjærvær is an abandoned fishing- and eiderdown village north west of Vega. The buildings in Skjærvær are well-preserved, and the Central Office of Historic Monuments has invested large sums to ensure the total preservation of the entire village. Money to preserve the old houses and buildings on the island have been granted by the Norwegian Government. Skjærvær and Bremstein is an unpopulated fishing village where bird feathers were collected for down. They are both on islands off the coast of Vega.

The characteristic mountains in Vega are reknown. The terrain here is perfect for both hillwalking and mountaineering. There is a wide range of outdoor activities to suit all ages and abilities. Vega could also be called an island kingdom. Over 6000 islands, islets and skerries surround the main island. Farthest out to sea are the fishing villages of Bremstein and Skjærvær with their old, weather-beaten houses, boat houses, wharves and jetties.
