Off the Beaten Path

The village of Gásadalur is famous for the dramatic waterfall that sits just outside the town. The town, whose name means Goose Valley, is typical of the Faroe Islands in its size (tiny) and architecture (small wooden houses painted red and black and with grass roofs). For most of its existence, the town was in effect cut off from the rest of the country, separated by a massive chain of mountains on one side and the sea on the other. In 2004 a tunnel was constructed and the population, which had been 16 people, is on the rise.
