Faroe Islands Hike: Mulafossur waterfall

Next to Sørvágsvatn (see our hiking guide for this iconic location), the Mulafossur waterfall is one of the main attractions on the Faroe Islands.

The main advantage is that it’s so easy to reach (now with the tunnel) and that its location couldn’t be more picturesque.

The waterfall is just a 5-minute walk from the picturesque village of Gásadalur in the western part of Vágar with less than 20 inhabitants. You are driving through the one-lane tunnel that is an experience on its own. You can see the little village after about a minute or so. There's a sign showing you where to go to the waterfall. If there isn't much going on, you can park on the street, but I would recommend driving into the village. There is a parking lot that also offers a very clean toilet. From there, the waterfall is only a5-minute walk away. The view is incredible and truly unique thing. At its best, nature. Don't forget to walk on the other side of the waterfall through the small stream. It's safe if you're not near the fall.

Most visitors stay above or at a distance from the waterfall to see the village of Gásadalur and Múlafossur, creating beautiful pictures. The flows up and around when the weather becomes windy, creating a view that is truly unique.
