Stjórn is a river that has its origins in the mountain Geirlandshraun. Making its way over the hills into a canyon, the Stjórn River becomes an amazing waterfall called Stjórnarfoss which can be seen from the bridge below it.  From there the river flows northeastwards to the lowlands where it merges with Geirlandsá River, becoming the Breiðbalakvísl River on the east side of Stjórnarsandur, until it reaches the Skaftá River.
