Bruarfoss is the most beautiful waterfall in Iceland, in my view. I had done extensive research before flying to Iceland, knowing the elusive nature of this true beauty.
In spite of all the research, I still ended up taking the wrong turn. Luckily I found the correct slip road after an hour of searching. As suggested, this was a totally hidden gem and I kept driving into the wilderness only to find dead ends everywhere.
After 45 minutes of frenzy, I got off where the trail to the waterfall was predicted on various blogs. I kept walking in the muddy slimy wilderness with day light diminishing.
It was an eerie feeling as I could hear the water gurgling somewhere in the distance but couldn’t see any clearing to get to it. After some bruises from the thorny shrubs and a free fall in the slippery mud, I reached Brúarfoss!!!
True to its tales, majestic yet humble, calm yet intriguing, persistent yet elusive…….It was a breath taking moment. All the perils to reach this beauty seem completely worth the view!
