River Jökulsá á Fjöllum

- Arnardalur Power Plant

Diverting the flow of the river Jökulsá á Fjöllum to East Iceland would affect the river and its surroundings all the way to the mouth of the river. The series of waterfalls in the river, including Dettifoss waterfall, would disappear in its present form. Construction would affect the landscape from Mt. Herđubreiđ all the way east to Egilsstađir and north to the coast at Öxarfjörđur fjord. The area’s landscape, natural expanses, geological features and wildlife are all considered invaluable.
