There’s no exact count of rivers that flow north, but there are a great many. Some of the larger ones that flow north are the Nile River in Africa, the Rhine, Vistula, Oder and Elba rivers in Europe and the Mackenzie in Canada. At least 2/3 of the rivers in Brazil and Bolivia flow north through the Amazon rainforest. There are also many rivers in the U.S. that flow north. Some are the Oswego in New York, the Saginaw River in Michigan and Bighorn River in Montana and Wyoming.
