Top 10 biggest waterfalls Iceland

Home - Iceland - top 10 highest waterfalls Iceland

It is quite a dilemma how to list the top 10 biggest waterfalls in Iceland. There aren’t accurate figures about the water flow of many big waterfalls. I know that there are a few rivers with a high volume of water. All of them with the source at a glacier, but the waterfalls in those rivers are more big rapids. The Urriðafoss is one of those high volume rapids.

I will only count in waterfalls with a drop over 10 meter combined with waterfalls with a visual high volume. So this is my top 10 of biggest waterfalls in Iceland"
