了解 儿童瀑布

冰岛西部汹涌的儿童瀑布

冰岛西部的儿童瀑布(Barnafoss)水势汹涌,与一旁水流平缓的赫伦瀑布群(Hraunfossar,即熔岩瀑布)形成了鲜明对比,尽显冰岛自然的迥异之美。湍急瀑布的背后却流传着一个悲伤的民间传说。

民间传说

相传,儿童瀑布附近的Hraunsás农场上生活着两个活泼的男孩。一天早上,父母离家前往教堂,让孩子们留在家中,但百无聊赖的孩子不久就决定出门去教堂找父母。

孩子们知道一条通往教堂的近路:走过临近瀑布上的石桥,他们就能很快到达。而来到石桥上时,咆哮瀑流、高耸断崖的可怖景象让孩子们突感晕眩,不幸失足落水。这座瀑布也因此被人们唤作“儿童”瀑布。

他们的母亲悲痛到近乎疯狂,故事的结局则有两个版本。一个版本说,母亲最终将石桥捣毁;另一个版本说,母亲用北欧神秘的如尼文字诅咒了石桥,任何胆敢过桥的人都将与她的孩子一样,落水而亡。而后来的一场地震将石桥崩毁,诅咒也就此解除。

这则悲惨的民间传说或许只是虚构,但儿童瀑布的急流的确相当危险。许多冰岛民间传说听起来颇为恐怖,但实际上是家长用来吓唬不听话的孩子的,在当时具有很强的教育意义。

儿童瀑布与熔岩瀑布是冰岛西部最著名的两大瀑布

周边景点

儿童瀑布狭窄而汹涌,洁白的瀑流在幽谷间回旋冲荡,激起阵阵低矮白浪,独有一份凌厉之美。另一座著名的冰岛西部瀑步与儿童瀑布仅仅几步之隔,即熔岩瀑布

熔岩瀑布由一系列从熔岩原下汩汩流出的溪流组成,流速平缓,笼罩在祥和静美的氛围之中。熔岩瀑步与儿童瀑布相映成趣,冰岛自然地貌的多样在冰岛西部得以淋漓尽致的展现。

欧洲流速最快的地热温泉——德尔达图赫菲温泉(Deildartunguhver)也距儿童瀑布不远;温泉水温接近沸腾,为临近城镇供给热水。

雷克霍特(Reykholt)、博尔加内斯(Borgarnes)两座历史文化名镇也同样位于冰岛西部景区。雷克霍特的Snorrastofa博物馆集中展出了中世纪文豪斯诺里·斯图鲁松(Snorri Sturluson)的生平与作品,他创作的挪威列王萨迦与北欧神话埃达都是世界文学中的绝对经典。

博尔加内斯的移民定居中心则以冰岛历史为主题,游客将了解到千年前维京人定居冰岛的经过。著名的《埃吉尔萨迦》也发生于博尔加内斯地区。
