Information about Múlafossur

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.
