Lagarfljot is a long and narrow lake in eastern Iceland, that holds the accolade for being the third largest in the country. Shrouded in mystery and intrigue, Lagarfljot has long been the centre of numerous myths and legends; a giant serpent-like creature called Lagarfljotsormur is said to lives in its depths and has been the subject of many sightings and stories throughout Icelandic history. Aside from these myths and legends, Lagarfljot is renowned for its natural beauty and diverse wildlife. Surrounded by rugged mountains and dense forest on all sides, there are ample opportunities for visitors to try their hand at hiking,
fishing and boating. Lagarfljot is also home to a variety of fish species, including the Arctic char, trout and salmon, making it a popular destination for fishing enthusiasts. One of the most sought-after attractions in the area, however, is the Hengifoss waterfall - one of the tallest in the country, characterised by its unique red rock formations. If you’re in search of a destination that’s both beautiful and mysterious, Lagarfljot fits the bill perfectly.
