ANGLING MOORLANDS ARNARVATNSHEIDI and TVIDAEGRA

Region: Highland
Coordinates: 64.82583° N 20.42397° W

Those moorlands cover a large area of the north-western Interior. The lakes there are considered innumerable like the mounds in the valley Vatnsdalur and the islands of the Breidafjordur Bay. Themoorlands are among the most beautiful and peaceful parts of the country and many families and individuals spend unforgettable days there camping and fishing.

Most of the lakes abound in Lake Char and Brown Trout and some of them are only accessible on foot or by 4wd vehicles. They have been fished the whole year round during historical times and they were a valuable source of food during hard times, sometimes preventing total famine.

The bird life is rich and highly interesting and people regularly collected lichens for additional food up there, especially when grain was scarce. Outlaws and vagrants lived there for differently long periods of time and found shelters in many of the lava caves.
