Hvítárvatn (also known as Hvítárlón) is a lake in the Highlands of Iceland and the source of glacial river Hvítá. It is located 45 km northeast of Gullfoss. Its surface is about 30 km²; its greatest depth is 84 m. There are some rivers and lakes with the Icelandic adjective hvítur (= white) in their name. This is explained by the origin of most of Iceland's freshwater: It comes down from glaciers and the colour is therefore rather light. More information...
