Some facts are cast-iron. 18 islands, somewhere in the middle of the North Atlantic, let’s say remote, halfway between Scotland and Iceland, capital Tórshavn, … and so on. But: Never trust anyone who states that it’s possible to count waterfalls in the Faroe Islands. Flight of fancy. Silly. Totally fabricated. Because it’s not, for a number of reasons. Waterfalls are everywhere, in various shapes and sizes. Some of them are barely visible, others of medium size. First, they appear out of thin air, then they disappear without a trace. Isn’t it a good thing that there are the big ones, too? They might change their looks, but at least it’s easy to find them. May I introduce Fossá to you? Based in Streymoy. Follow the road that leads to Tjørnuvík, make your co-driver check the scenery to the left, pass Nesvík, keep driving, and the moment you think that you missed Fossá, the waterfall will be there. Yes, it’s pretty big. Rumor has it that we might be talking about 140 meters. I didn’t recheck. Any land surveyors out in the field, doing the job: Please enjoy and report.
