The village of Gásadalur surrounded by the highest mountains on Vágar enjoys a panoramic view over the isle of Mykines
Until recently the village of Gásadalur was the only village on the Faroe Islands without road connection to other villages. The path over the mountain, where the post was carried three times a week, was the only connection to the outside world. Now the isolation is broken by a tunnel, but the cozy atmosphere of Gásadalur is still intact.
Whether you choose to hike the old post route to Gásadalur or drive through the newly built tunnel, the village of Gásadalur is a very special and unique place to visit characterised by its isolation until recently. A place undiscovered, yet full of magic
In Gásadalur you will find Múlafossur, which is one of the prettiest waterfalls in the world.
Gásadalur is a “must see” for all tourists because of its unspoiled nature and lack of influence from the precense.
