This is a list of cities and towns in Iceland. Some cities, such as Hafnarfjörður
Hafnarfjörður
and Akranes, are also municipalities. These municipalities would share the same name and attributes. However, most recognized municipalities consist of several cities or towns. Therefore, municipalities for which there is no city or town of the same name are not included here. In the case of Árborg, for example, the entries are the city of Selfoss and two towns – Eyrarbakki
Eyrarbakki
and Stokkseyri. There are also a few municipalities in which there are no cities or towns, and are thus not included in the list below.
