About Bruarfoss Waterfall, Reykjavik

For those who take the trouble to hunt this waterfall down it immediately becomes their favourite waterfall in Iceland. It can be a little hard to find, especially if it has just rained, but following the path from the car park at Brekkuskógur, keeping track of the signs and sticking to the dirt path is usually the thing to do. And at the end of this lies a jewel of a sight. What enchants people about these falls is the breathtakingly vivid light blue color of the water, which is bright against the harsh landscape over which it flows. The water doesn’t drop from a great height, but instead in a series of small drops. It’s a very mystic sight.

Bruarfoss Waterfall, Reykjavik Reviews

  • Iceland is unusually suited for waterfalls. This small island country has a north Atlantic climate that produces frequent rain and snow and a near-Arctic location that produces large glaciers, whose summer melts feed many rivers. As a result, it is home to a number of large and powerful waterfalls.

  • Absolutely stunning waterfall. Way more interesting than the more popular/known waterfalls. Stunning blue water with pitch black rocks. Amazing contrasts! Bit hard to find especially in the snow but totally worth it!

  • This waterfall was a unexpected surprise. We didn't know about it.. It wasn't that well sign posted (snow didn't help) and needed about a 20 min walk across a couple of fields. But it was one of the most unique waterfalls in Iceland. Well worth the treasure hunt.

  • Astoundingly beautiful! Breathtaking. Please, but considerate of those who live nearby when planning how to get to Bruarfoss.

  • This is a wonderful waterfall. The water is just so blue, it is amazing. We were captivated. It is on private land and the locals may tell you off, like one lady did with us as they do not want to be besieged by tourists, but it is well worth the visit. It is not sign posted and you have a hunt a little to find it.
