HISTORY

On one side of the landscape that surrounds the houses of Gásadalur appear the beautiful mountains Árnafjall and Eysturtindur (both with their peaks at more than 700 meters of altitude). Near the base of these natural monuments, a green ground begins that undulates slightly towards an extensive cliff edge, from where you can see the ocean. And part of this wall is marked by the photogenic Múlafossur waterfall, which falls dozens of meters high, flowing into the sea.

WHY THIS PLACE

Gásadalur has less than 20 inhabitants (and this low number is due to the isolated position of the village): until 2004, it was only possible to get there by boat, helicopter or with a long walk through the mountains of the area (the story goes that the mail carriers from the Faroe Islands had to face this arduous journey on foot three times a week to carry mail to the community). Approximately 15 years ago, however, a tunnel was opened in the region, allowing access to the village by cars. Even so, it is a place that is still able to make the tourist feel in a secret corner of the world.

CURIOSITIES

At certain times of the year, travelers heading to Gásadalur can sleep in a small inn that exists in the village, called Gásadalsgardur (the establishment's website, however, informs that it is closed at the moment and that it will only open from spring in the Hemisphere North next year). And there are attractive tours to take there: the more adventurous can climb the Árnafjall mountain, on a path that offers beautiful panoramic views, but is not recommended for those who suffer from vertigo. To get close to the point where the Múlafossur waterfall begins, it's just a five-minute walk from the village. And Gásadalur still houses a small souvenir shop.
