nature

Gasadalur is one of 18 islands in the archipelago of the Faroe Islands, Denmark. The island is predominantly uninhabited because it is pretty hard to reach. To solve the problem though, a tunnel was built through the mountains in 2004, connecting Gasadalur to the main road network of Vagar island. One of its most remarkable sites is the splendid waterfall - a feature that many photographers love to shoot.
