Bøsdalafossur & Geituskoradrangur
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. You can also cross the river Bøsdalsá by using the stepping stones that are placed in the river. You can then walk up to a gorge where there is a good view of Geitaskoradrangur, the bird cliffs of Sørvágsbjørg, Mykines and Mykineshólmur and to the south you see Sandoy, Skúvoy and Suðuroy.
