STORY: "The mighty Thjorsa river ( Þjórsá )is Iceland's longest river at 230 kilometers. It's named after Thjorsarhraun, a lava field that flowed some 7800 years ago and was one of the greatest postglacial holocene flows in the world. It is located in the south of the island, its source, the glacier Hofsjökull. It flows out through narrow gorges in the highlands of Iceland carrying with it glacial sediment as it mixes with blooms of native agriculture. As it nears the river mouth it's depth thins, revealing shallow sandbars and tiny islands. " - Chris B
