Hiking trip from Bøur - with the best view over Gásadalur and back to Bøur

Bøur and Gásadalur are located on the island Vágar. 

Gásadalur is located on the edge of Mykinesfjørður, surrounded by the highest mountains on Vágar. Árnafjall towers to a height of 722 meters to the north, and Eysturtindur to the east is 715 metres high. Here too, the view south to Tindhólmur and Gáshólmur is quite magnificent.

 

This hiking trip begins in the valley about three kilometres west of the village of Bøur. We hike up the mountain for a fantastic view over the village Gásadalur. The village has been one of the most isolated villages in the Faroe Islands until a tunnel in 2004 connected the village with the rest of the island's road network.

 

The first stretch of the path is steep and runs close to the edge of the mountain, but depending on the weather you get an outstanding view over Sørvágsfjørður, Tindhólmur, Gáshólmur and Mykines. 

 

An overwhelming view

The view of Gásadalur is one of the most photographed places in the Faroe Islands, and once you see it you will understand why. There is a special atmosphere at the site and always fascinating and mesmerizing to follow the waterfall and observe how the water continuously flows over the edge down onto the sea surface. The view however, depends on the weather. 

 

Our local guide will tell you more about this fantastic place when we hike. 

 

 

Your safety is our highest priority. We draw your attention to the risks associated with the unique characteristics of the Faroese environment. Consequently, should you venture into the Faroese environment, either alone, following inspiration from our website, or together with one of our tour guides, you do so entirely at your own risk. We accept no liability for any injury or loss that may occur as a result.
