Stjórnarfoss is locatd in South east Iceland, approximately 2 km away from the small village, Kirkjubæjarklaustur. The waterfall is quite wide and about 10 meters high. It falls from a small canyon and is surrounded by cliffs and green grass/moss slopes. It cannot be seen from the ringroad so it is easily missed and not visited by many. It is situated in the river Sjórn that originates in the mountain Geirlandshraun. The name Stjórnarfoss means ruling waterfall, or government falls due to an ancient official assembly area, Kleifar, located nearby. Today there is a camping site at Kleifar.
