Veidivötn Lakes are a magnificent highland oasis. They are a friend in the desert, which no one should miss. They are only 130 km away from Hotel Rangá, and about 30 km from The Highland Center Hrauneyjar. The crater formations are of a true extrarterrestrial character and the contrast between black sand and gin-clear water is truly unique. Many travelers find this to be the highlight of their visit to Iceland. The lakes are rich in trout that are believed to be from one of the oldest stocks in Europe. They vary in size, 3-6 pounders being common, and are known for their excellent taste. During the winter months Veidivötn are only accessible by Super Jeeps.
