Throughout the centuries Icelanders have been very efficient and almost pedantic in giving names to every small piece of item in the landscape throughout the whole country. Wherever you go, everything from a high and mighty mountain to a low hill seems to have a name. Every creek and every river have a name. Every waterfall in our extensive variety of small and large falls has a name. And believe me, we have hundreds of waterfalls. Every cliff, lava field, every lake, every cave, every hot spring and basically every place in the country has a name.
