Driving along the ring road between Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss waterfalls, drivers are sure to come across an unusual sight. Located across Lake Holtsos is a fence covered in hundreds of bras. 

The first bra was placed along the fence around 2012. However, no one truly knows how this tradition got started. Rumor has it that after a party in which several bras were stolen, they were later strewn along the fence. Ever since, travelers have been adding their bras to the fence growing the collection substantially over the years. 

The farm owners don’t mind the bras along their fence but will take down any underwear, shoes, socks, or mittens that have been attached. 

Know Before You Go

Either pull over in the farm's driveway or at Steinahellir cave and walk a few meters to the fence.
