Veierland has a 17 km. coastline and offers tracks and gravel paths free from car traffic. The island is excellent for rambling and cycle trips in beautiful surroundings. Grave finds from the late Iron Age is proof of an early settlement.

Veierland today has 160 pemmanent residents (50 households) and about 400 cottages. The first school was built with money collected in 1861. In 1891 the building which still today serves as the school was moved into, it is well worth a visit. In 1870 the school had 66 pupils. Since 1900 the number of pupils has gone down to today´s level of between 10 and 20. A village museum is estabiished in Veierland´s oldest house "Rispestua" close to the school.
