Glyvrar is a village located on Eysturoy, in the Faroe Islands.

It is one of several villages on the eastside of Skalafjørður (fjord) that have grown into a 10 kilometre long conurbation.

In Glyvrar there is a museum called ’Bygdasavnid Forni’. The church in Glyvrar is originally from 1927 but it was heavily restored in 1981.

From 1903 to 1928 there was a school for navigators in Glyvrar. Graduates from here would become masters of fishing-ships.

Bible translator Victor Danielsen worked as a teacher in Glyvrar in 1914.
