Does anyone have the directions to the waterfalls below Kirkjufell? Are they easy to find? We will most likely spend a bit of time there photographing. We currently have reservations in Hellnar but I am now thinking we might want to switch reservations to someplace in Grundarfjorour. I should add that we will be there in July.

It's very easy.

The red marker here: http://en.ja.is/kort/?type=aerial&x=296395&y=498647&z=9&from=64.923626%2C%20-23.297762&to=64.925893%2C%20-23.312338

And you start by the green marker. Bad road, but I'm quite sure you can drive it on a normal car (or just walk).

Enjoy :)

The west-most track was blocked by large rocks (intentionally) when I was there last month, but there's another closer to the water, marked with stakes. Some pics & video here: www.gowildimages.com/Landscapes/Europe/IcelandW/i-QVGptpM/A
