Amazing Place

If you ever visit the Faroe Islands make sure you stop there. Pray for good weather as well. This thread should be called waterfall and not a tunnel.

Just returned from a week long trip to the Faroes. Gásadalur was beautiful. We came here on a very foggy day and hadn't realised what it was we were supposed to be seeing. However when we returned one sunny morning we realised and the sight was stunning. The walk to the lookout point isn't clearly marked with a sign or... More

The tunnel has lights ain the middle from a local artist. the work involved to dig this and maintain the Tunnels is amazing for a small area like the Faroe's. they are really a large family here and we could live here. Like the remoteness and the friendliness of the folks here.

This place is what you've all seen on the pictures and is very much associated with the Faroes. It is very closely located to the airport and you can just drive up there in 15 minutes or so, making it your first/last stop after your landing. This location is wonderful and very much recommended to visit. Note that if the... More

One of the many road tunnels constructed across the Faroes, this was our first tunnel visit. Single carriageway, dip and dive passing places with the odd minor pot hole. Have since completed all bar one of the tunnels on the islands - last one today! An experience to be savoured. There are no tunnel fees for on land tunnels -... More

Gásadalur is a village which until 2004 was one of the most isolated places in the Faroe Islands, but nowadays it is easily reachable by car through the tunnel built that year. It's a very quiet place located between the sea and the highest mountains in Vágar island, perfect for going for a short, easy walk along the cliffs. Park... More

A good example of the desire and will to keep all the islands connected as equal important parts of the Faroe Islands. A mere 25 families recide on the other side of the single lane tunnel which was opend in 2004. Go there to enjoy the views of soo many other fantastics views up there

The Faroes have a policy to give the small towns the ability to stay in modern times. Large tunnels are built through the mountains. Gasadalur had a population of 17 before the tunnel and after the tunnel 25 people. Interesting history and gorgeous scenery.
