Lake Thveit has an area of 0,91 km². It is very
shallow and situated only 2 m above sea level a short distance north of the fishing town
Hofn in Hornafiord. Rivers Millulaekur and Skrapslaekur empty into it and its
discharge, Thveitarlaekur, tributes to the glacial river Hornafjardarfljot. Road no. 1 passes just east
of the lake and it is quite interesting for bird watchers.
The lake abounds in lake char, which is
small, mainly because it is not netted. According to the legend a horse shaped
creature with reversed hoofs was seen by the lake on dark autumn evenings, but it has not
been spotted recently.
