Waterfalls - Fossar in north Iceland

from Hrútafjörđur to Mjóifjörđur


I have always been a bit fascinated by waterfalls, called fossar in icelandic. And therefore some names ends with foss/fossar in icelandic, names ending with á means rivers and ending with lćkur means small river.
Here are pictures of waterfalls I have taken through the years in Iceland. There are now three files West from Reykjavík to Hrútafjörđur, North from Hrútafjörđur to Seyđisfjörđur and South from Mjóifjörđur to Reykjanes.
Rivers are ordered clockwise from Reykjavik. And ordered by where they enter sea or other rivers, inorder traversal.
Information provided here as is, without any warranty. Please let me know if you notice any errors.
Number of icelandic rivers/á: 364
Number of icelandic waterfalls/fossar: 489
Remaining waterfalls (I know off): 502
