The Mulafossur Waterfall is one of the key attractions of the Faroe Islands, one of the many beautiful waterfalls around. To get there, you will need to travel to the Village of Gasadalur, which is west of Torshavn (the capital). Around the edge of the village closest to its exit (the Gasadalur Village is the westernmost village on the main islands of Faroe Islands), there will be a sign called "Mulafossur" which will take you onto the beaten path approx. 400m down to a viewing point where you can take pictures with the greater scenery and Mulafossur Waterfall. The walk is good for all ages.

You could take the bus to reach there, but it is quite restrictive in timing, so you're better off driving around for greater flexibility. You can park in the village centre which also features a public toilet.

Do take great caution and take note that to travel to the Gasadalur Village, you'll need to travel through one of many tunnels across the Faroe Islands; this one you'll face is a single lane tunnel with multiple passing spaces; you'll need to read up the traffic rules and etiquette in Faroe Islands before you start driving.

Furthermore, if you are planning to get a bite to eat at the little cafe in Gasadalur Village (which is only open for the lunch period) you may want to strongly reconsider. They only offer small bites, snacks, and traditional open sandwiches (very small portions) at very high prices; all items offered are cold except the hot coffee/tea.

Nice waterfall just off the road. Beautiful views of the ocean. Nice short drive from the airport with great views on the way. Well worth the 15 minute drive when you get here (or before leaving).

The drive to get to the waterfall is easy and beautifully scenic - where on the Faroes is not to so? Around each turn of the road, your jaw will surely drop.

Yes, there is the one-way tunnel, though it is well-lit and it also has many passing spots for vehicles coming from the opposite direction. Although it may seem disconcerting at the beginning, it really is very easy to navigate, and at the end you are rewarded with the magnificent view of the tiny village, sweeping mountains and the waterfall itself.

Park in the village, and walk down the path to the viewing area of the waterfall. We saw it on a windy day, which added to the atmosphere and aching beauty of this landscape.

I was about to miss this gem without my companion. (Thanks AI whom I met on the way to Traelanipa)

It was busy here with mass of visitors like me. This waterfall surely is the stamp for your Faroe islands experience!

The next day I saw the waterfall, it rained a lot!

This is a gorgeous place to visit, and you arrive via a single lane tunnel. The waterfall is different in colour and appearance according to the weather, and so you never can have a disappointing view. Quite stunning, and an iconic image of the Faroe Islands.

It was an amazing experience driving our motorcycle to this small settlement, walking through the nature and then viewing this waterfall. Well worth the trip! We also saw some Puffins flying past, which was amazing.

We spent this day driving around the island of Vagar where the must-see waterfall Múlafossur is located. We parked by the village of Gásadalur and did a short hiking trail. You can walk next to the cliffs high above the ocean on a marked route. The terrain is very easy, and the views are stunning. The waterfall is located on the same route, but if you want to you can also park your car closer to the waterfall and skip the walking. I highly recommend walking the route though, since it is beautiful, short and easy. It was also doable in the rain, but would surely look even nicer with a better weather. The trail might be muddy during rain, and make sure you have rain clothes. The whole trail took us 45 min max at a leisurely pace.

This waterfall is amazing! Falling down from a small stream in the Gasadalur village into a huge Atlantic Ocean. The place is surrounded by cliffs and amazing green scenery in Faroes. When it is windy, the water from waterfall goes everywhere! We visited in August twice. For the first time the weather was gorgeous and we enjoyed the small walk to the waterfall and around the village. The second time it was quite windy and dark because of clouds and the scenery looked very dangerous but still amazing. Plenty of parking available and also a lovely cafe in the village with lovely home made cake. Highly recommend this place - close to the airport!

Located just a short drive from the airport through a one-lane tunnel which is very easy to navigate. Short walk from the parking are (also toilets are there). Can be a great view on a fair weather day.
