    • Southern Ring Road waterfalls

      by recondit Online Now Feb 9, 2015 at 10:27 PM

      Hi there,
      Driving eastwards along the Southern Ring Road I found three waterfalls with apparent no name between Kirkjubæjarklaustur and Foss á Síðu. Two of them are very similar but not the same one, they are also of the Foss á Síðu type. Does anybody know the names of these falls if they have one? Shoukd like to add the pics but I don't know how to do it (if possible).
      Thanks.
