Eikesdalsvatnet is a lake in Nesset Municipality in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. The lake is long and narrow, roughly 18 kilometres (11 mi) in length, and it is the largest lake in Møre og Romsdal county. The village of Eikesdalen is located at the southern end of the lake. Average depth is 89 meters (which is 67 meters below sea level) such that most of the lake's volume is below sea level.
Its main inflows are the river Aura, flowing northwest from the lake Aursjøen, and the river Mardøla with the famous waterfall Mardalsfossen. The lake flows out through the River Eira which flows into the Eresfjorden. The lake is surrounded by 1,500-to-1,800-metre (4,900 to 5,900 ft) tall mountains like Juratinden and Fløtatinden.
