Árnafjall, with it’s 722m, is the highest mountain on Vágar. It is located on the north-west side of the island, above Gásadalur.
Hiking up to Árnafjall is not the easiest, and is not recommended for those with a fear of heights. Not only does the ascend require some climbing, but when you find yourself on the summit, the vertical drop ahead can make you feel faint. However, if you can get past your fear, Árnafjall is an amazing experience. From the summit you will see the entire green colour spectrum when looking out to Barið to the west, Víkar below and the north of Streymoy to the east.
