Hemrufoss

Hemrufoss is a low stream waterfall in the river Hemra along the Öxi/Axarvegur (road 939) in the East of Iceland. There are dozens of waterfalls along road 939, a lot of them unnamed. Hemrufoss is such an unofficial named waterfall.

The river Hemra cascades down the mountains with a descend of more then 190 meters.

Hemrufoss is clearly visible from road 939 (Öxi) and is also accessible for 2WD. Öxi is a mountain pass between Skriddalur and Berurfjordur. The road is rough and lies in curves and small bridges. On the way is much to see, waterfalls in all formats, high cliffs and well grown areas. When driving on road 1 at Berurfjordur you can’t miss road 939 which shortens the route to Egilsstadir.
