Lake Apavatn has an area of 14 km². The catch
consists of lake char and brown trout and the lake is accessible by car.
This lake is historically important as can be
read in one of the country's Sagas (Sturlunga). The lake abounds in fish, mostly rather
small but well tasting lake char. It is not very generous except where brooks and streams
spill into it. The brown trout is less commonly caught, but it thrives well on sticklebacks
and weigh up to 10 pounds.
The distance from the capital
(Hagi area) is about 90 km.
