Fardagafoss is a very beautiful waterfall just outside Egilsstaðir, in the east of Iceland, and is easy to reach.
When Idriving on ringroad 1 at Egilsstaðir take the exit to road 93 in the direction of Seyðisfjörður. Just before the road goes up to Fjarðarheiði there is a parking at the right side of the road (gps 65.267607, -14.332911). There is a sign for “Fardagfoss”.
From the parking it a short walk, along the river Miðhúsaá to the lower part of the Fardagafoss. Here the river Miðhúsaá plunges down over 20 meters in two stages.
I totally missed the upper par which is much higher. I just had to walk further upstream to see the best part of Fardagafoss with a total height of appr. 80 meters. It was only a 10 minute walk further up the hill.
In Seyðisfjörður you can also find the Búðareyrarfoss, with a height of 60 meters.
