Borgarnes-Town<br/>(What To See - West)


Borgarnes is a town with a population of some 2,000 people located only 70 kilometres from Reykjavik. Borgarnes is unusual because it is a town not dependent on fishing like most coastal towns, but rather on service and industry. In Borgarnes town you will find the Icelandic settlement centre, whose main objective is to present the fascinating sagas from the settlement times as well as a special exhibition of the famous Viking poet, Egill Skallagrímsson. All major services are to be found here, and it is truly a beautiful town well worth a visit.
