Iceland is home to a seemingly endless amounts of rivers and waterfalls. One of the most interesting things about the Icelandic rivers are the patterns of the braided glacial rivers, most of whom are to be found on the south coast.

I spent some time last summer looking for all the braided glacial rivers I could find. This was one of my favourite locations, where the 2 rivers Jökulsá á Dal (The blue/green river) and Lagarfljót (The murky brown river) flow out to sea in the bay of Héraðsflói. This is located in the North East of Iceland and it took me a few hours of walking through the massive black sand beach to reach this location.
