  • The viewing area is well maintained and offers great views of the waterfall and the village in the background. Make sure to walk a little further down past the main viewing area so you get a larger...  more »

  • This is the one everybody's talking about. The scenery, the village, the waterfall itself. A post card couldn't be created better than this. If the weather is fine, this is absolutely one of the best....  more »
  • This waterfall was beautiful to visit, even during the winter months. Very close to the town of Sørvágur and an easy drive with a really cool tunnel you pass through, incredible views, and lots of sheep roaming around. (Prepare to get your camera wet if there is any wind!)
  • One of the most iconic sights to see on the Faroe Islands. Especially with being able to drive right up to it. There isn't a lot of parking at the entrance to walking in you just kind of have to find a spot on the on the side of the road.
  • Amazingly beautiful. So green and fantastic clean air
  • Must see iconic place. Wind can blow your hat away but it also makes waterfall going up. View doesn't get boring, I promise. Getting there is possible by car(due to a 1,7 km dark tunnel you can't cross by foot) or super dangerous hike, which I wouldn't recommend after rain or snow.
  • Beautiful waterfall in a stunning setting. You don't have to walk very far from the parking lot to get a great view of this beautiful waterfall - the stream/river that creates this waterfall is actually not that big but it is not that very often that you get waterfalls that cascades directly into the ocean. Well worth a visit and the drive there is also quite scenic!
