Reyðarvatn is one of several small lakes along route 54 on Snæfellsnes Peninsula. Mount Þorgeirsfell, a beautiful, with steep, and tall scree slope, serves as a stunning backdrop to the lake. The lakes offer a fantastic contrast to the mountain range alongside them, with colours ranging from coal-black to light yellow or golden. The mountain’s dark expanse rises dramatically above the lake, which mirrors the mountain on a perfectly still and sunny day. The area is a stunning backdrop for any production with its unique, surrounding landscape.

Basecamp and facilities

There is a farm close to the lake and a school for the area. That could be suitable for basecamp. There are no facilities apart from the private farm at this location and phone coverage is excellent.

Risk factors

The banks of the lake can be unstable, wet and slippery. The lake is also very close to the main road which has an average driving speed of 90 kilometres an hour.


The area is not a tourist attraction, but the lakes are popular fishing spots for locals. Closing this location should not be a problem with appropriate permission and permit.
