Old postal route to Gásadalur
The old postal route to Gásadalur.
Steep climbs and beautiful views. This is what the old postman in Gásadalur got in a days work. This hike will take you on a rigourous climb that will literally take your breath away. On the way up, you will pass Líksteinin, where the men used to rest the coffins on the way from Gásadalur to put them to their final restingplace in Bøur. Further along, you will reach Keldan Vívd, a spring which with its blessed water will give eternal youth to all those who drink from it. Surrounded by mountains on one side and the sea on the other, you will make your way towards Skarðið, before you will start your descent down towards Gásadalur, home of the stunning waterfall Múlafossur, and which until very recently was completely isolated from the rest of the world.
The hike is approx. 5km and lasts around 3 hours.
