Another fun tunnel to drive through! This one is a single lane, so you have to understand who has right of way and pull in to allow traffic to come past. It is amazing to see how clever engineers have blasted through the rock to create a tunnel which services a tiny village of about 15 people, and says a lot about the commitment of the Islands to connect remote societies together. Very impressive.

We truly enjoyed driving all around the Faroe Islands, especially going thru all the creepy tight tunnels! This one was the last one on Vagar, and leading to the gorgeous waterfall. The views coming out of it, on a sunny day, are just beautiful!

We were so impressed by the tunnel system in the Faroes. This particular tunnel is life changing to the difficulties faced pre tunnel. It’s hard to imagine how difficult it was to travel by the old trail over the mountain.
The tunnel is single lane, but traffic is light. And what fabulous views when you reach the end.
A five out of five rating for the incredible engineering feat.

We took the old postie route over the mountain. It was amazing and worth it. We hiked with our 8 and 11 year old who are avid hikers. I wouldn’t attempt if you don’t hike often and have small kids. There is a lot of scree and in wet conditions it could be dangerous with the cliffs. It took us 5 hours there and back but took a break at the cafe up the hill. They have the best carrot cake! They take debit too which is always a great relief while your hiking and have no cash. Definitely recommend and way more amazing then driving through a tunnel. Work for the godly views!

This is a tunnel through the mountains to the waterfall.it is only accessible for one car only. So if u go through , the other car at the other side have to make way for you.it is quite dark there and your vehicle have to use the light to indicate to the other side to show that you are coming

Made a quick visit to the waterfall before dropping off the car at the airport. Stunning short road around the coast to Gasadalur with views out towards Mykines. A great introduction to Faroes, roads, views, birds and the tunnel. The Faroes has some big undersea and land tunnels but for the enthusiast it has some cracking dark, single lane beauties! The scariest were the ones on Kalsoy but this one was a good introduction. You do wonder what happens to the people of Gasadalur if anyone blocks their tunnel. Or how tolerant the airline would be if you missed the flight. The waterfall is pretty cool too.

This tunnel gets you to the Gasadalur waterfall. The tunnel itself is fine, and kind of fun to drive through. I'm not sure what happens when this place gets busy as it is a single lane tunnel with room to pull off to the side to pass. We didn't see another car but my guess is that the Faroe Islands will have crowds to deal with before too long. Beautiful area!

One of my first tunnels, but was easy to navigate and certainly a great addition to the island and access to communities

There are two ways to get to the Faroe Islands' most iconic site: you can hike across a mountain a few kilometers before Gásadalur, after leaving Bøur, or you can drive through Gasadalur Tunnel, a one-lane dig that goes under the mountain others may be hiking across.

The drive through the tunnel is itself an adventure: dimly-lit and narrow, it seems almost foreboding. It is not, however, as it may seem; although it is only one lane, there are a number of dug-out spots along the way to allow one car to pull over and make room for oncoming traffic, and everyone (at least, everyone I saw) drives slowly enough to avoid any surprises.

Whichever route you take - the hike over the mountain, or the tunnel through it - will be a new adventure for you. Before you leave the Faroes, you might even want to take both!

We drove through our single track tunnels which were much narrower than this. If everyone drives courteously, there isn’t a problem. The views when you come out on both sides are fantastic.
