Faeroe Islands Vága Municipality


A picturesque village in the Faroe Islands, known for its remote setting and iconic waterfall cascading into the North Atlantic Ocean.

Tips from the community

There’s something incredibly dreamy about waterfalls barreling into the ocean. Lucky for us, the Faroe Islands have loads and loads of them. This iconic show-stopper spilling into the sea is perhaps the most famous place on the Faroes. You can reach Gasadalur on your own with a car rental, and it’s on the same island as the airport, making it a great first stop! You can also hike to the village via “The Postman Trail” if you feel like stretching your legs. Hiking with an experienced guide is always encouraged in the Faroes due to the rapidly changing elements. Fun fact: when it’s extra windy (quite often), the waterfall shoots upwards.
