Jökulsá á Fjöllum

One of the most powerful glacial rivers in Iceland and the second-longest at 206 km.

It drains from the Vatnajökull glacial cap in two main branches that merge near the interior “oasis” of Herðubreiðarlindir. It follows a gentle slope most of the way to the inhabited area of Kelduhverfi, where it plunges down to the lowlands over the dramatic and unique Jökulsargljúfur waterfall series that stretches several kilometres.
