Foss á Síðu

Foss á Síðu is one of the most photographed waterfalls in Iceland, with the river Fossá dropping 30 meter over a basalt rock cliff. The area is thought to be the dwelling place of some of Iceland’s ‘hidden people’, and according to a local folklore story, home to a rare kind of ghost that wanders around the 9th century farm. The ghost of a dog named Móri, who carries with him a nine generation curse that was directed at the occupant family in the 16th century.
