Amazing lake with no visitors at all
Jul 2020
This lake in vulcano environment near Reykjavik and south coast is amazing because of the quiet. No people around, a car maybe in half an hour, really calm and beatiful, Worth a short visit

Beautiful views
Feb 2020
My husband and I had arrived early and couldn't check into our hotel yet so we made a stop at the lake. We ended up arriving at the lake right around sunrise and saw the most spectacular views. The drive was very nice with amazing views of the lake and mountains around.

Beautiful and Stunning view

I would recommend this spot if you are trying to northern light hunt and if you just want some amazing views that are not too far from Reykjavik!

A competitor with the famous Loch Ness in Scotland
Aug 2019
Locals like to boast that there is also a similar monster as the Loch Ness one in this lake.
Quiet and wonderful sightseeing from the cliffs surrounding this lake.
Also some rod fishermen on the shore stones beaches and more surprisingly, some small leisure sailing boats.
See some attached pics.

Great lake with amazing views and a must stop location. The black sand is lovely and so tranquil. We stopped here for a break after driving here and realising the road was being relaid, whilst you were driving on it. Definitely worth stopping here and enjoying the peace and quiet and amazing views

Beautiful colours, brooding silence
Aug 2019 • Friends
Beautiful lake and amazing landscape, admired both from the top and from the black beach. As the not far Krysuvic springs, it looks like you’re not visiting a place on earth but rather a valley from another planet, with its colours and its brooding silence.

Beautiful drive

The drive along Kleifarvatn lake is quite beautiful. There are several scenic parking spots to pull over for a beautiful view.

You'll find this lake lying just off rt 42. Enjoy taking a breaking or eating a bite on the go on the black sand beach.
Easily accesible; worth tha visit

Nice lake
Jul 2019 • Family
A large lake surrounded by hills, it is very picturesque but best seen on clear and sunny days (on cloudy days it will be more dark brown than blue). Worth a stop if you are in the area .
