Brúarfoss is waterfall near the town of Laugarvatn in the south of Iceland. Brúarfoss is Icelandic for Bridge Waterfall and it got its name from a natural stone arch that was spanning over the river before it collapsed a long time ago.

The most beautiful things of Brúarfoss waterfall are its amazing blue colour and the fact that it is made up of thousands of small waterfalls.

Furthermore it is not overcrowded with tourists as it is not signposted and demands a medium-length hike to get there. Even if many blogs on the internet suggest otherwise there is only one way to get there without trespassing. To remain friends with the Icelanders find the bridge over Brúará river (on road no. 37) park your car next to it and walk the stream upwards on the eastside.
