I am in general stunned by the Faroe Islands and this is one of my favorite spots! It never looks the same to me depending on wind and whether and it is a new and stunning experience evertime I visit Gasadalur.

It was a blustery day. So windy the water instead of following gravity to the ocean, blew upwards toward the cliff . The spray was amazing. The wind was so strong I was worried I'd be blowen over. You can do a short circle route....More

One of God's Fine Art. Truly a jaw-dropping landscape. Grateful to see it before it will become one of those over touristed country. Faroe Islands now checked off my bucket list 🙏🏼

Almost too familiar from photographs that you will have seen before travelling. A short walk from Gasadalur, where there is a nice cafe serving lovely sandwiches.
