Hverfisfljót river
Hverfisfljót river Abstract in the river Hverfisfljót. Hverfisfljót is one of the largest glacial rivers in the area and it originates at Síðujökull, a glacial tongue at the southwest of Vatnajökull glacier. Hverfisfljót divides the district into two regions: Síða, on the west side of the river, and Fljótshverfi on the east side. The river has very strong currents in places, and its water is dark grey and tumultuous, but the flow can vary greatly depending on the season. In summer, the average flow is 50–150 m³/sec, but it drops to 5–30 m³/sec in the winter. There are occasional outburst floods in Hverfisfljót, in conjunction with outburst floods from Skaftá river, with floodwater originating in the Skaftárkatlar cauldrons in Vatnajökull glacier.
Núpsvötn river
Núpsvötn river Abstract in the river Núpsvötn Westernmost at Skeiðarársandur, Núpsvötn lakes are to be found. They are nourished by the rock stream Núpsá and the glacier river Súla. Súla flows down from the edge of Skeiðarárjökull glacier, at the corner of Eystrafjall mountain. The rivers merge into one river-bed some way above the bridge over Núpsvötn. When the main road was laid in 1974 both of the rivers were hindered with levees. In the first part of the 20th century, Súla-debacles from the lagoon Grænalón were massive, around 5-10 thousand m³/sec, and when Grænalón emptied the water level lowered about 150-200 m. These days it will only lower about 20 m and the quantity of water will peak at approx. 2000 m³/sec.

Jökulsárlón - Glacier Lagoon
Jökulsárlón - Glacier Lagoon Jökulsárlón literally "glacial river lagoon") is a large glacial lake in southeast Iceland, on the edge of Vatnajökull National Park. Situated at the head of the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier, it developed into a lake after the glacier started receding from the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. The lake has grown since then at varying rates because of melting of the glaciers. It is now 1.5 kilometres (0.93 mi) away from the ocean's edge and covers an area of about 18 km2 (6.9 sq mi). It recently became the deepest lake in Iceland, at over 248 metres (814 ft), as glacial retreat extended its boundaries.The size of the lake has increased fourfold since the 1970s. It is considered as one of the natural wonders of Iceland.

Lakagígar Craters from air
Lakagígar Craters from air Laki or Lakagígar (Craters of Laki) is a volcanic fissure in the south of Iceland, not far from the canyon of Eldgjá and the small village of Kirkjubæjarklaustur. Lakagígar is the correct name, as Laki mountain itself did not erupt, as fissures opened up on each side of it. Lakagígar is part of a volcanic system centered on the volcano Grímsvötn and including the volcano Þórðarhyrna. It lies between the glaciers of Mýrdalsjökull and Vatnajökull, in an area of fissures that run in a southwest to northeast direction
Ófærufoss Waterfall in the Highlands of iceland
Ófærufoss Waterfall in the Highlands of iceland The Ófærufoss waterfall can be found in central Iceland, and is situated in the Eldgjá chasm in the interior of the Eldgjá (Fire Gorge) area. Eldgjá is a 40 km long, 600 m wide (in some parts), and 200 m deep eruptive fissure that last erupted shortly after the Settlement period in 934. Ófærufoss is a distinctive and interesting two-tiered waterfall in the Nydri-Ófæru river that drops into Eldgjá Canyon in Skaftártunguafréttur. The lower falls were once spanned by a natural stone arch, but this collapsed into the river during a thaw in spring 1993. The waterfall cascades over the edge of the canyon in three stages and its upper area is bordered by a splendid arch.
