The waterfall Bøsdalafossur itself is a magnificent sight as it thunders down towards the sea.
The waterfall Bøsdalafossur is the waterfall that flows from the lake Leitisvatn/Sørvágsvatn and into the Atlantic ocean. It has a height of 30 meters. Geituskoradrangur is the beautiful sea stack that can be seen from the same view-point as Bøsdalafossur
When you arrive right at the edge of Bøsdalafossur, you can see ruins from buildings that the British left behind in Vágar after World War II. During the war, there were several thousand British soldiers in the Faroe Islands, especially in Vágar. The British built the airport, which was extended in 2011.
The waterfall Bøsdalafossur itself is a magnificent sight as it thunders down towards the sea. This area alone, with its waterfall, ocean and lake, has been much depicted in dramatic weather in winter, when natural forces struggle against each other.
At the end of Leitisvatn / Sørvágsvatn there are a lot of great sightseeing opportunities:
Trælanípa, the peculiar cliff that has a gloomy story attached to it.
The lake above the sea – and don’t forget the viewpoint for the optical illusion where Leitisvatn / Sørvágsvatn looks like it is floating high above the sea.
