Barnafoss is close to Hraunfossar which exploded from Hallmundarhraun (which is a large lava plain). Barnafoss is a waterfall that is situated in Western Iceland, about 100 km (62 miles) from Reykjavík. Barnafoss is on the river Hvítá (white river) creating a stunning landscape. Many Icelandic folk tales have been associated with Barnafoss, the most famous being about two boys who lived with their parents on a farm. One day the boys’ parents went to the church with their farmers. The boys, who were already grown, stayed home, but decided to follow their parents who went to church. To get to the church sooner they made a shortcut through a natural stone bridge that crossed the river a little higher above the waterfall. But on the way to church one of the boys felt dizzy and fell into the water and drowned himself, the other brother in trying to help also fell in the cascade. When mother discovered what had happened, she put a spell on the bridge saying no one ever would cross the bridge so no one drowned. A little later, the bridge was demolished in an earthquake
