List of waterfalls of Iceland
Iceland is unusually suited for waterfalls. This small island country has a north Atlantic climate that produces frequent rain and snow and a near-Arctic location that produces large glaciers, whose summer melts feed many rivers. As a result, it is home to a number of large and powerful waterfalls.

- Gjáin has many small waterfalls
