Sandvinvatnet is a lake in the municipality of Odda in Hordaland county, Norway. The 4.3-square-kilometre (1.7 sq mi) lake lies on the southern edge of the town of Odda. The Buerdalen valley and Buarbreen glacier lie to the east of the lake. The Norwegian National Road 13 runs along the east side of the lake. The lake water flows north into the short river Opo, before entering the Sørfjorden.[1]
