A volcanic parking meter rises

The parking meter is expected to be put into operation very soon.

A parking meter has been put up in the parking lot by Seljandalandsfoss waterfall, one of the Souths greatest tourist attraction. All entrance to the area was previously free of charge.

The meter is made to look like columnar basalt, a volcanic rock formation commonly found in Iceland, as to not disrupt the visual aspects of the environment.

The area has seen big renovations in the past months, as the landowners have reacted to the recent surge of tourism. Bergrisi, the company providing the meter, has previously put up meters by Sólheimajökull glacier and Reynisfjara beach.

The meter was put up yesterday and is expected to be put to use very soon.
