This part of the country is among the youngest (1477) and wildest pearls of the central highlands. It includes about 50 lakes of various sizes, many of which are crater lakes. The craters and lakes lie in two rows. Most of the lakes are fed and discharged underground because of the lava fields and porous scoria. To get into the area, you must ford the small river between the two Fossvotn lakes. The northernmost lakes are called Hraunvotn. On some of the lakes, you can find small, beautiful, sensitive and variegated oases. You can catch two-to-six-pound Brown Trout in most of these lakes. Some people have caught ten-pounders!
