Interesting Places, Natural, Water, Rivers

Þjórsá (Icelandic pronunciation: ​[ˈθjoursau]) is Iceland's longest river at 230 kilometers (about 143 miles). It is in the south of the island.

Þjórsá is a glacier river and has its source on the glacier Hofsjökull. It flows out through narrow gorges in the highlands of Iceland. Further downstream, another river, the Tungnaá, flows into it (see also Háifoss), before it enters the lowlands. There it passes the valley of Þjórsárdalur (Thjorsardalur) where the historical farm of Stöng is located at 64°7′12″N 19°49′13″W. In the lowlands it flows along the eastern border of the Great Þjórsá Lava.
