Múlafossur Waterfall is an absolute icon and dare I say the most famous place in the Faroe Islands and if you have seen only one photo from the Faroe Islands, it was probably a photo of Múlafossur Waterfall. What is remarkable about this waterfall is certainly not its 60 metres of height or the massiveness of the water splinter that forms it. The fascinating thing about it is the beautiful backdrop of mountain ranges and, above all, the fact that it falls directly into the waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

The Múlafossur waterfall can be found at the very western end of the island of Vágar near the village of Gásadalur. You can park at the Gásadalur car park and from there you are at the waterfall in less than 10 minutes. Even though it may not look like it from the photo, make sure you reserve enough time to visit the place, because once you’re here, you won’t want to leave.
