Brúarhlöð is a narrow gorge in Hvítá River about three kilometers south of the Gullfoss Waterfall. Through the centuries the river has formed the rocks in to beautiful pillars and formations.
Just above Brúarhlöð is a bridge over the river, which was built in 1959. The first two bridges washed away, the first one in 1929, and the second one in 1930. When driving over the bridge we can only imagine the forces needed to wash away a bridge in that size. Travelers should make a note to stop at Brúarhlöð, to view the magnificent nature and the rock formations.
