Located on scenic Borgarfjordur Fjord, the town of Borgarnes is the center for communications, trade and services in Borgarbyggd County. The town is proud of its legacy, serving as the setting for most of the Icelandic Sagas with the landscape, nature and culture reflecting this heritage and bringing history to life. History can be particularly enjoyed at the Settlement Center where visitors learn about the nation’s origins and Egill Skallagrimsson, Iceland’s favorite warrior poet from the Sagas.

Borgarnes has a multitude of natural sites to explore with breathtaking waterfalls, moss covered lava fields and sparkling rivers brimming with fresh trout and salmon. Visitors can also enjoy the local swimming pool with exceptional views of the ocean, a unique playground lovingly built from scrap-wood and a nicely landscaped 18-hole golf course.
