On the other side we will see the impressive Sornfelli with its military radar installations on top, which caused political frictions in the Faroe Islands for decades. Despite political opposition in the Faroes NATO installed radar equipment on Sornfelli to monitor air and sea traffic in the North Atlantic.This is an interesting geological route because one can observe the “Streymoyarsyllin” - a great volcanic intrusion (a sill) that splits and crosses horizontally the whole landscape. On the other side of Skorðadalsegg, you enter into another world, with grass and relatively few rocks and stones. There is a special peace that is only broken by the sounds of birds and sheep – and maybe a single boat in the fjord. The view from Vatndalsegg is worth it. Here, we will see the beautiful rock formations on Likkureyn and Núgvan. Further out to sea are the islands of Koltur, Hestur and further still Sandoy and Suðuroy and in the valley the lakes.The landscape varies a great deal. We walk between high mountains, through several valleys, we have an amazing view to fjords meanwhile we contemplate interesting geological phenomena and listen to stories that are linked to places that we pass on our way which explain phenomena in nature and tell about events that have taken place in those places. In the Faroe Islands we have a long and rich tradition of storytelling, and many stories and legends are associated to the landscape, which explain phenomena in nature and tell about events that have taken place. These stories and legends give us an insight into the lives in villages of bygone times and give the experience of nature an extra dimension.Pickup is in Tórshavn at the bus station in the harbour.

Despite political opposition in the Faroes NATO installed radar equipment on Sornfelli to monitor air and sea traffic in the North Atlantic.This is an interesting geological route because one can observe the “Streymoyarsyllin” - a great volcanic intrusion (a sill) that splits and crosses horizontally the whole landscape. On the other side of Skorðadalsegg, you enter into another world, with grass and relatively few rocks and stones. There is a special peace that is only broken by the sounds of birds and sheep – and maybe a single boat in the fjord. The view from Vatndalsegg is worth it.

Hiking from Bøur to Gásadalur

Book this hike to get a great view over the spiky islet Tindhólmur and the villages Bøur and  Gásadalur. At the end of the hike, you will reach the beautiful and famous waterfall Múlafossur. Your tour guide will pick you up in Tórshavn and take you on an adventurous hike to one of the most stunning sights in the Faroe Islands. Gásadalur is nestled on the edge of a sheer cliff and surrounded by high mountains. Árnafjall mountain peaks at 722 meters to the north and the summit of Eysturtindur mountain is 715 metres at its pinnacle to the east.This charming site has been one of the most isolated villages in the Faroe Islands until a tunnel in 2004 connected the village with the rest of the island's road network. You will do the two hours hike from Bøur to Gásadalur as in the old days before the tunnel to this remote village.Prior to the building of the tunnel, the postman hiked to Gásadalur three times a week from the nearest village Bøur. You will take the same route that will lead you to a track that rises to a height of 430 metres above sea level.This three hour hiking trip begins in the valley some three kilometres west of the village of Bøur. The hike offers amazing views. The first part of the hike quite demanding as the path is pretty steep and runs close to the edge of the mountain. Weather permitting, you will get an outstanding view over Sørvágsfjørður fjord, Tindhólmur islet, and Mykines island.You will find a nice place to rest at Líkstein (Corpse Stone) just as the coffin bearers on their way to Bøur did in the past - a necessity, as there is no cemetery in Gásadalur. Although the villagers lack a  burial ground they proudly show visitors the unspoiled Múlafossur Waterfall that cascades into the North Atlantic Ocean. After you have explored the waterfall in Gásadalur, the tour guide will take you back to Tórshavn and drop you off there.Don't miss out the opportunity to hike to Gásadalur where you will see Múlafossur Waterfall.
