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

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
