Lake Botnsvatn has an area of 1,05 km². It is situated 130 m above sea level just south of the small town Husavik to which it belongs.
Its discharge, Budara, runs through the town to the sea. A relatively good road leads to the lake from town and along a part of it. The lake’s surroundings are peaceful and beautifully framed with mountains. The catch is rather small lake char.
Permits have not been sold for this lake, and those, who wish to fish there simply do so.
The distance from the capital is about 480 km by the Whale Bay tunnel.
