Gásadalur is a village in Vágar.
It is connected to Bøur by the latest road tunnel (as of August 2008) to be built in the Faroe Islands.
The village itself is tiny but there is considerable scope for walking.
The Faroe Islands (Faroese: Føroyar pronounced [ˈfœɹjaɹ], Danish: Færøerne Danish pronunciation: [ˈfæɐ̯øːˀɐnə]) are an island group and archipelago under the sovereignty of the Kingdom of Denmark, situated between the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, approximately halfway between Norway and Iceland. The total area is approximately 1,400 km2 (540 sq mi) with a 2010 population of almost 50,000 people.
Look back to the mouth of the tunnel. Go beyond the road end to watch puffins. Look to sea for the closest mainland view of Mykines and for the tiny but extremely shapely island of Tindholmur and the nearby stacks.
