  • 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.
  • 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.
