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.

Bruarfoss is mesmerizing. There are three levels of the falls. It is recommended to go to the upper falls. The hike to Bruarfoss is not very difficult.

Cool spot. Quite a hike to it, but it's pretty for most of the way. Be advised that the trail can be extremely and unpleasantly muddy if there has been some rain. Proper hiking shoes advised.
