Vaglaskógur is one part of a bigger forest area, one of the largest continuous forests in Iceland which covers most of the eastern side of Fnjóskadalur valley south of Ljósavatnsskarð pass. Extending north from it is Hálsskógur forest and to the south are the forests Lundsskógur, Þórðarstaðaskógur, Belgsárskógur and Bakkaselsskógur. The different names are due to the traditional farm names although they are in fact one continuous forest.
