List of cities and towns in Iceland

Map of Iceland

This is a list of cities and towns in Iceland. Some of Iceland’s larger cities and towns are also self-contained municipalities whose geography and populations are therefore equal. However, most of Iceland’s municipalities, which are semi-autonomous administrative zones, contain several disparate towns or cities, each of whose population contributes to that of its respective municipality.

In addition to Iceland's many independent towns, this article includes cities and towns whose municipalities consist of one, self-contained city of the same name, such as Selfoss, Eyrarbakki, and Stokkseyri.

For more information on the administrative divisions of Iceland, refer to the “Divisions” section of the "Iceland" infobox on this page.
