List of rivers of Iceland

The Álfar

On an island like Iceland, no rivers are very long. None of the rivers are important as a means of navigation due to the impracticality of settlements in the Highlands of Iceland where they originate. The most important rivers are:


  • South Iceland 1
  • West Iceland 2
  • Westfjords 3
  • North Iceland 4
  • East Iceland 5
