Veiðivötn eru vatnaklasi á Landmannaafrétti milli Þórisvatns og Tungnaár, sem samanstendur af allt að fimmtíu vötnum, bæði smáum og stórum. Veiðivatnasvæðið er u.þ.b. 20 km langt og 5 km breitt frá suðvestri til norðausturs.

Mörg vötnin eru sprengigígar sem mynduðust í Veiðivatnagosinu 1477, t.d. Hnausapollur og Ljótipollur. Vatnaklasinn verð til í núverandi mynd í þessu eldgosi. Fjölmörg eldgos hafa orðið á Veiðivatnasvæðinu frá því ísöld lauk, t.d. gosið í Vatnaöldum í upphafi landnámstíðar (um 870) en þá myndaðist landnámsgjóskulagið. Tungnárhraunin, þar á meðal Þjórsárhraunið mikla, eru upprunnin frá Veiðivatnasvæðinu.          

Veiðivötn are a cluster of Lakes on Landmannaafrétti between Þórisvatn and Tungnaá, which consists of up to fifty lakes, both small and large. The Veiðivötn area is approx. 20 km long and 5 km wide from southwest to northeast.

Many of the lakes are explosive craters that formed in the Veiðivötn eruption in 1477, e.g. Hnausapollur and Ljótipollur. The water cluster exists in its current form in this eruption. Numerous eruptions have occurred in the . . All info can be found at: https://www.patreon.com/RafnSig
