Múlafossur is a watarfall like no other. A nice walk from the village houses in Gásadalur you'll find this famous waterfall. Múlafossur is situated on Vagar island some 11 km (7 miles) from Vagar Airport. Just before getting to the waterfall, you will drive through the Gásadalstunnilin tunnel.
There is a parking lot near the waterfall. From this parking lot, you will walk for 2 minutes in order to reach the breathtakingly beautiful waterfall that drops into the ocean. The waterfall is over 30 meters (100 feet) high.
During windy days, you are likely to see the water rising up into the air. This is a common phenomena all around the Faroe Islands.
Múlafossur translates directly to the Promontory waterfall. The village sits high and with a sheer drop where the waterfall plunges into the ocean.
This spectacular rock formation with the iconic hole in it is located off the island of Vágar towards the visually dramatic islet of Tindholmur. Drangarnir translates directly to "The sea stacks" and the two sea stacks that together form Drangarnir are called Stóri Drangur or "Large sea stack" and Lítli Drangur or "Small sea stack". You can either experience Dangarnir at a distance in the village Bøur or get close to the attraction in a boat.
Travellers will also pass the sea arch when heading west to the island Mykines from the village Sørvágur. The sea can be rough around the sea-stacks but on most days small boats can sail through the arch.
The hike to Drangarnar is difficult. Most people are not interested in hiking to Drangarnar because it takes a whole day and it is quite challenging, especially the fact that your feet are bent in the same angle for about 3 hours straight each way.
Gásadalur is a remote village on Vágar island. Until recently it could only be accessed by hiking on foot over the mountains, but now the village is accessible through a driving tunnel and has become a favourite with visitors to the Islands.
Home to the famous picturesque waterfall Múlafossur, Gásadalur has a cafe and guesthouse, serving locally sourced lunch, cakes and coffee. Gásadalur translates directly to "the Goose Valley".
Gásadalur is surrounded by two mountains both over 700 metres. To the east Eysturtindur reaches 715 metres above sea level and to the north Árnafjall elevates 722 metres high. Eysturtindur translates directly to "the Peak to the East".
You can experience the village throughout the year. It takes 20 minutes to reach Gásadalur from Vagar Airport.
Bøur is a small village on the way to Gásadalur and the famous waterfall Múlafossur on the island Vágar. From Bøur you have a great view towards the peaky and uninhabited islet Tindhólmur and the stacks Drangarnir. There are many turf houses in this small village that is nestled only a 10 minutes' drive from Vágar Airport.
The village Sandavágur is situated on the island Vagar. It is the last village before you enter the sub-sea tunnel leading to the main island Streymoy. Just a short drive from the village Sandavágur lies the impressive rock formation Trøllkonufingur or the Troll Woman's Finger.
Vagar island is the westernmost of the largest islands in the Faroe Islands. The island is like a ‘Faroe Islands in Miniature’ due to the wealth of attractions and natural wonders found here.
The island of Vágar is home to many of the most loved places in the Faroe islands among others: Múlafossur waterfall in the tidy village Gásadalur, the 313 metre (1027 feet) high rock formation Trøllkonufingur just outside the village Sørvágur and the sea stack Dunnesdrangar west of the airport.
On this island you will also experience the sheer cliff Trælanípan from where you will see the lake above the ocean, the waterfall Bøsdalafossur that flows into the Atlantoc Ocean from the largest lake in the Faroe Islands, Leitisvatn, and the village Bøur with lots of turf roofed houses and from where you can also see the famouse Drangarnir sea-stacks with the hole in the middle and the islet Tindhólmur with the many peaky upright tips.
You can see Árnafjall mountain when in the popular village Gásadalur. Árnafjall peaks at 722 metres (2369 feet) and is the highest mountain on Vágar island. The only airport in the Faroe Islands, Vagar Airport (FAE), is also situated on this island.
