 Hornindalsvatnet

Hornindalsvatnet is Norway´s and Europe´s deepest lake, officially measured to a depth of 514 metres (1,686 ft). The village of Grodås lies at the eastern end of the lake in Hornindal and the village of Mogrenda is located on the western end of the lake in Eid. The E39 highway runs past Mogrenda and the lake.

Hornindalsvatnet, the deepest lake and one of the cleanest in Norway, is located partly here and partly in Eid municipality. None of the glacier streams run out into the lake and this has resulted in Europe´s clearest lake. It is possible to swim, row a boat or fish here. The lake is also the site of the Hornindalsvatnet Marathon, held annually in July.
