Before coming to Iceland I stumbled across a photograph of a little known waterfall called Brúarfoss, (Bridge Waterfall). The few refrences to it I managed to find online all spoke of how difficult it was to find. This proved to be the case and after giving up finding the easier route searching for an hour in a maze of single track roads leading to summer houses we opted for the longer route trekking up where the river crosses the main road.
The path leads up the right hand side of the River Bruar and there is a track that you can drive the first part. This route had the added bonus that you pass another beautiful even less well known waterfall called Hlaupstungafoss. We eventually made it up to the waterfall and although the lighting was far from perfect it was definitely worth the trip and I will definitely be returning in the future. A word of warning though, on the way back down as the sun was setting we were horrified to find that although there were no warning signs the fence that was open on the way in was now padlocked shut and our car was trapped inside.
