We just spotted this from the road (like everyone else) so hopped out for a closer look. Two of us climbed the steep little path past the bridge viewpoint to get nearer the top - recommended if you have the time and agility and a...More

We've seen a lot of waterfalls on our two trips to Iceland and Bjarnarfoss was one of our favourite. It is not as popular with tourists as some of the other waterfalls so you won't have to worry about big crowds. We traveled in March...More

No need to leave the car when the weather is inclement, you can we the waterfall easily. After a wet few days the flow down moves very swiftly. Quite a forceful picture.

Great stop really close to the road with parking. We walked up past the rock so we were right by the waterfall. Was a steep walk but not a long one and worth the view.

You can see the falls on your way to Arnarstapi. There is a small parking lot and path to the falls. Not too many people, which was nice. This is a high waterfall off the side of a mountain. We enjoyed the walk to it....More
