It is not hard to find breathtaking natural wonders that will blow your mind away in Iceland. It seems that no matter where you look there is a photo opportunity. To tell the truth it’s quite easy to understand that, especially considering that you have everything from the Geysir, caves, black beaches, aeroplane crash sites, and waterfalls.
Some waterfalls are better known than others, such as Gullfoss, Seljalandsfoss, Skogafoss and
Detifoss. And even though they are incredible, sometimes the lesser known ones can be just as impressive if not even more breathtaking.
This is where Bruarfoss comes in. Bruarfoss is a small waterfall right on the Golden Circle.
What it lacks in size makes up in the jaw-droppingly beautiful blue water.
In fact, Bruarfoss is one of Iceland’s bluest waterfalls.
The blue colour comes from the glaciers which rub against the Rock beneath them which in turn creates a very fine powder. This rock powder ends up in the water and gives the waterfall its distinctive blue colour.
The best thing about the waterfall is that it’s not a major tourist attraction. In fact, during some of the busiest times in Iceland, you can find yourself appreciating this stunning waterfall all by yourself.
When visiting Bruarfoss make sure to bring a camera, some shoes you don’t mind to get dirty,
and a sense of Adventure as you will be walking through a small Forest to your destination.Once there you will be greeted by a small Bridge and the waterfall itself.
Now it can be a bit difficult to find the Waterfalls, so here are a few simple directions to get you there nice and easy.
