Bøsdalafossur Waterfall

  • Bøsdalafossur og Geituskoradrangur

The waterfall Bøsdalafossur itself is a magnificent sight as it thunders down towards the sea.

Bøsdalafossur is the waterfall that flows from the lake Leitisvatn/Sørvágsvatn and directly into the Atlantic Ocean. It has a height of 30 meters.

The waterfall Bøsdalafossur is a magnificent sight as it thunders down towards the sea. This area alone, with its waterfall, ocean and lake – is a popular depiction of dramatic weather in winter, when natural forces struggle against each other.

When you arrive right at the edge of Bøsdalafossur, you can see ruins from buildings that the British left behind in Vágar after World War II. During the war, there were thousands of British soldiers in the Faroe Islands, especially in Vágar. The British first built the airport.

Geituskoradrangur is the beautiful sea stack that can be seen from the same view-point of Bøsdalafossur.

At the end of Leitisvatn / Sørvágsvatn there are a lot of great sightseeing opportunities:
