Lake Djupavatn is a small lake in nice and peaceful surroundings on the Reykjanes peninsula, with an area of 0,15 km². Its deepest point is 16,7 m and it most probably is a crater lake like a few others in the proximity. The lake supports quite a lot of small lake char.
The lake was considered fishless until some char fries from lake Thingvallavatn were released there around 1960. The lake is very popular among families because of its beautiful surroundings and the number of rods per day is limited. A nice fishing lodge is on the lake.
