  • Lake where it is very comfortable sitting on the banks of one of the banks while the ducks and swans look at you so you throw them food. When I was, part of the Lake was frozen, and you could walk up and even go to the little island in the middle.

  • This lake is in the centre of Reykjavik and well worth a visit, it was still partly frozen when we visited in March 2018 and you could walk on it.  more »
  • Lovely lake in the city center, perfect for a relaxing walk. There are public sculptures scattered around the lake. It's a beautiful area and worth the time to walk around.  more »

  • Really nice little lake in the center of Reykjavik. It was partially frozen when we visited in the beginning of March but there were lots of ducks and swans swimming near the city hall.
  • Beautiful Lake to take a stroll around and when it's winder you can enough walk on the ice. There are beautiful swans and ducks to feed a well. Absolutely gorgeous during sunset.
  • This lake was unique!! So many birds were sitting around, making the landscape even more magical!
  • In the winter it's a nice place to go to walk on the ice. The houses around the lake are very nice and there are many different birds to be seen
  • Nice lake. Best for photos during the "golden hour" using the picturesque houses around it.
