Fossá is the highest waterfall in the Faroe Islands, with water falling from a height of 140 metres in two cascading jumps. Fossá Waterfall is located on the island of Streymoy just a few kilometres from the village of Haldarsvík and is easily accessible from the road. It’s very easy to get to and with a little bit of skill you can take a half hour hike up to the middle terrace and enjoy the waterfall from unusual angles. It is on the middle terrace that you can walk up to the falling water and if you have the experience, with a little imagination you can feel like you are at the Icelandic waterfall Seljalandsfoss for a while.

Considering the height of the waterfall, it probably won’t surprise you that the best and overall view of the waterfall is from the opposite island of Eysturoy from the road to the village of Eiði.
