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.
Mykines lies off the west coast of Faroe Islands' main islands. The island is home to the largest puffin colony in the Faroes and visitors to Mykines will see thousands of puffins as this is their safe haven when nesting during the summer season from early May to end of August.
On Mykines island visitors can walk along impressive rocky coastline to the lighthouse on the nearby islet Mykineshólmur. You can see that the islet has been exposed to the full force of the North Atlantic Ocean. Seals are regular visitors when hauling themselves on the skerries at the westernmost tip of the Faroe Islands.
Mykines rises high from the sea on all sides and can only be reached by boat or helicopter in fair weather. Knúkur is the highest peak reaching 560 metres above sea level providing a panoramic view of the island.
The island is 10,28 km2 and it stretches 7 kilometres (4,3 miles) from east to west. Mykines is fairly narrow from north to south.
Mykines is a car-free island so the ferry to Mykines only takes passengers. The only way to see the island is by foot. As the island is really steep and surrounded by lots of skerries, submerged rocks, and sea stacks, there is only one place on the island where the ferry can port which is in the small pier near the only village on the island.
The remote island is a truly amazing place. People come to the island to experience nature, to soak in the atmosphere, and to enjoy the quietness of the place. The wildlife is immense from puffins, common murre, northern fulmar, black-legged kittiwake to northern gannet.
The houses in the sole village are turf-roofed and well kept. Everything about Mykines is truly special and for many people Mykines is the very highlight of their summer experience in the Faroe Islands. Only 15 people live on the island throughout the year.
The village bears its name from the beautiful 200 metre long gorge that the villagers have used as a natural harbour and landing ground for their boats for centuries. There are stairs all the way down into the gorge.
