I am in general stunned by the Faroe Islands and this is one of my favorite spots! It never looks the same to me depending on wind and whether and it is a new and stunning experience evertime I visit Gasadalur.

This is one of the most amazing waterfalls I have ever seen. The waterfall & the surrounding landscape are amazing & at times the wind whips up the water so it looks like an anti-gravity waterfall.

This is on the island of Vagur. There is a small car park with toilets. A short walk to the waterfall from the car park down a gravel path, and there are a couple of view points to see the waterfall cascading across the cliff....More

It was a blustery day. So windy the water instead of following gravity to the ocean, blew upwards toward the cliff . The spray was amazing. The wind was so strong I was worried I'd be blowen over. You can do a short circle route....More

Gasadalur waterfall is only a short 5 minutes walk downhill from the parking space past a white wooden gate. No extra hiking is required to see the waterfall. There is also a trail of about 4 km which starts from a nearby village called Bour....More

One of God's Fine Art. Truly a jaw-dropping landscape. Grateful to see it before it will become one of those over touristed country. Faroe Islands now checked off my bucket list 🙏🏼

Almost too familiar from photographs that you will have seen before travelling. A short walk from Gasadalur, where there is a nice cafe serving lovely sandwiches.

One of the top places in Faroe islands according to guides. In real it was really beautiful but still I expected more (probably because picture of the waterfall is everywhere in guides). And the waterfall looked better on the pictures than in real. But still...More

Yes, but it will take about a week and require hiking over very steep mountains.... The town Gasadalur (Where the waterfall is located) is 60km away from Torshavn, and used to be the most remote village in the Faroes until... More
