Thjorsarver is a wetlands area and natural reserve in the mid highlands of Iceland and became listed as a RAMSAR site in 1990, mainly as it the world's largest breeding ground for pink-footed geese.

6-10,000 geese pairs breed at Thjorsarer and other birds nest there as well, such as the purple sandpiper, red-necked phalarope, dunlin, Arctic tern, Arctic skua, ptarmigan, golden and ringed plovers, snow bunting and long-tailed duck. Botanically, it is home to 167 species of vascular plants as well as mosses and lichens, some of them rare. The insect life is rich as well.
