Stunning waterfall, one of the main sights of the Faroe Islands.

If you've driving, take it steady in the one-lane tunnel. If you're going by public transport like me, watch out that not all buses continue to Gasadalur unless you request the journey in advance.

We spent this day driving around the island of Vagar where the must-see waterfall Múlafossur is located. We parked by the village of Gásadalur and did a short hiking trail. You can walk next to the cliffs high above the ocean on a marked route. The terrain is very easy, and the views are stunning. The waterfall is located on the same route, but if you want to you can also park your car closer to the waterfall and skip the walking. I highly recommend walking the route though, since it is beautiful, short and easy. It was also doable in the rain, but would surely look even nicer with a better weather. The trail might be muddy during rain, and make sure you have rain clothes. The whole trail took us 45 min max at a leisurely pace.

This is the one everybody's talking about. The scenery, the village, the waterfall itself. A post card couldn't be created better than this. If the weather is fine, this is absolutely one of the best sightings on the Faroe Islands. Only a short drive from the airport, go through the tunnel that only opened in 2006(!) , before that there was only a trail over the mountains.

This waterfall is amazing! Falling down from a small stream in the Gasadalur village into a huge Atlantic Ocean. The place is surrounded by cliffs and amazing green scenery in Faroes. When it is windy, the water from waterfall goes everywhere! We visited in August twice. For the first time the weather was gorgeous and we enjoyed the small walk to the waterfall and around the village. The second time it was quite windy and dark because of clouds and the scenery looked very dangerous but still amazing. Plenty of parking available and also a lovely cafe in the village with lovely home made cake. Highly recommend this place - close to the airport!

The viewing area is well maintained and offers great views of the waterfall and the village in the background. Make sure to walk a little further down past the main viewing area so you get a larger view of where the waterfall hits the ocean. I didn't realize this until I overheard someone else mention to a group to walk further down. Glad I did, as I got even better views.

There's ample parking at the start of the small trail to the waterfall (5 minutes maximum walk). There's additional parking in the village itself, adjacent to a public bathroom (very clean, new even).

Peaceful, beautiful, relaxing... certainly recommended.

We left it to the date of departure. Unfortunately it was a foggy day so we didn’t see the falls as clearly. A nice easily reached last spot. There was a 1 km short, one lane tunnel. The falls are easily reached from the limited parking area, but there are more parking spaces further down the road where the public toilets are located.

This is a gorgeous place to visit, and you arrive via a single lane tunnel. The waterfall is different in colour and appearance according to the weather, and so you never can have a disappointing view. Quite stunning, and an iconic image of the Faroe Islands.

If you want an easy walk of about 3 hours round trip, this one is great. It starts just near the airport or the Hotel Vagar. If you can't get dropped there, it would be walkable from the Hotel Vagar, but this would double the length of the trip. The walk from the road is mostly flat around a very pretty lake. After about an hour - hour and a half you arrive at a cliff where the lake water plunges into the ocean. While the views of the spectacular coastline are brilliant from either side of the water, it is only possible to see the full height of the waterfall if you cross over the water ( it is not difficult) and climb a little up the rocks on the other side. From there you can gain a view of the whole falls. If you climb the pointed hill on the side of the waterfall where you arrived, you can get stunning views of some of the other islands.

This place does not require much walking from the main road, and I would strongly recommend people who rent car from the airport to make their way here. It's just a short 15mins drive from Vagar airport. After driving through the tunnel, and driving downhill, you will get to see this waterfall from a top view. We stopped by the roadside for some photos before driving down closer to the waterfall. Park the car by the roadside and it's a short few mins walk to the 'platform' for photo taking of the waterfall with Gasadalur village as backdrop. Beautiful photo opportunities:) No toll or any parking fees needed :)

You drive through the one lane tunnel which is an experience by itself. After a minute or so you can see the little village. There is a sign which shows you where to go to the waterfall. You can park on the street if there is not a lot going on but I would recommend to drive into the village. There is a car park which also provide a very clean toilet. From there it is only a 5 minute walk to the waterfall. The view is amazing and something truly unique. Nature at its best. don't forget to walk over the small stream on the other side of the waterfall. it is safe unless you go to close to the fall.

Must See!!!
