I basically knew about this waterfall from looking at the maps. But in the field, I had to stay on the lookout for it as I walked from the car park for Hólmatungur, then made a right turn at a fork on the trail, which climbed uphill as it headed towards Dettifoss. Once I was at the top of the climb, that was when I had to look in the direction of the river very closely for the falls.
What tipped me off was the presence of a faint rainbow and what looked like disappearing water in the river. As you can see from the photos on this page, I wish I had a telephoto lens, but even then, the viewing angle was not very good.
Directions: As far as I was concerned, viewing this waterfall involved parking the car at the same car park as that of Holmafossar so see that page for driving directions.
