Light Faroe Islands
Múlafossur Faroe Islands

See the spectacular Múlafossur Waterfall and other breathtaking sites on the island of Vágar. This seven hour guided tour starts in Tórshavn.

Upon leaving Tórshavn heading North along the mountain road, you will get a magnificent view of the sea and landscape below and of Sornfelli mountain and Skælingsfjall mountain above. Along the mountain road, you will stop twice. First, there is a stop at Norðradalsskarð where you will see the winding road leading down the deep valley and the picturesque island Koltur in the horizon.

Next, you will experience the only prison in the Faroe Islands situated in Mjørkadalur valley. The view here is great. Add a lush grass roof to the prison and the view gets even better!

Your journey will continue to the first undersea tunnel in the Faroe Islands which opened back in 2002. The almost five kilometres long tunnel connects the islands Streymoy and Vágar.

There is a magnificent view of the islets Tindhólmur from Bøur. You will have the opportunity to go for a stroll between grass roofed houses and church that lie lumped together along the river close to the white sandy beach. Far in the distance you will see the bird island Mykines. You will go for a stroll between the cosy turf roofed houses..

The first village on Vágar island that you will stop by is Sandavágur. You will visit the red and white church and go inside the church to see the Runestone found in the nearby Eingjartoftum. The Runestone dates back to the 13th century. 

Next, you will head to Miðvágur and then alongside Leitisvatn to Sørvágur. West of Sørvágur lies the beautiful village Bøur. The villagers have a fantastic view the Tindhólmur islet and the sea-stacks Drangarnir.

The last stop on the tour is Gásadalur - one of the most jaw-dropping attractions in the Faroe Islands. Gásadalur is surrounded by stunning mountains and you will also have a panoramic view towards the puffin island Mykines. Gásadalur is one of the most authentic experiences in the Faroe Islands due to its remoteness. Until very recently, Gásadalur was the only village in the Faroe Islands with no road connection. Now there is a tunnel from Bøur to Gásadalur.

Gásadalur is most famous for Múlafossur Waterfall. You will get close to the waterfall and make sure to snap the iconic picture with the cascading waterfall the small village Gásadalur in the background.

You can add a hike to the Lake above the Ocean during the booking process. You will hike 8 kilometres to experience Trælanípa, Bøsdalafossur Waterfall and Geituskorardrangur. Adding the hiking opportunity to the optical illusion spot will extend your tour 3 hours. You will be taken back to Tórshavn after the tour and dropped off there.
