Spectacular Foss á síðu

Foss á Síðu is a spectacular farm mound approx. 10 km east of Kirkjubæjarklaustur. A beautiful waterfall falls from the cliffs above the farm, from a lake called Þórutjörn. This magnificent spectacle catches the eye of everyone that pass by. A passable hiking trail leads to Þórutjörn and from there the view of Síða is amazing.

The island is full of mesmerizing sites. Foss a Sidu – a gorgeous waterfall – is one of them. The falls is not very tall, but the surroundings make it a unique place to see. It also has a very unusual feature: because its stream is not very strong, sometimes, during very strong winds that come from the sea, it starts flowing uphill. A village is settled in the location and Foss a Sidu defines its landscape.
