Create an itinerary including Bruarfoss Waterfall
Famous for its vivid blue color and notoriously hard to find, Bruarfoss Waterfall gives a new meaning to the term "hidden gem." After an hour's drive from Reykjavik, you'll reach the waterfall via a hike on an unpaved and unmarked path. An adventure in its own right, the trail will have you hiking through mud and climbing over fences, but you'll be rewarded with stunning views of the sky-blue cascades. Enjoy the tranquil ambiance and take some postcard-worthy shots of the photogenic scenery. Bring appropriate footwear--the trek to the falls and back can get quite muddy and slippery.

  • Awesome hike with the kids past these three waterfalls. Great views, not too much mud for us. When we left around noon the parking lot was full.
  • On the way to main waterfall you will find 2 smaller waterfalls. Water in all river ir clearly blue .💙 It is very nice hike ( around 40min slow hiking one way ) when you reach the Brúarárfoss.
