Borgarnes

Borgarnes is a town in West Iceland about 75km north of Reykjavík, with a population of around 2000. It stands by a fjord called Borgarfjordur and is the centre of a vast municipality, Borgarbyggd. While not traditionally a big tourist destination, Borgarnes is a town many people see on their travels in Iceland. This is because of its location on the ring road between Reykjavík and North Iceland. This small town is perfect as a base for your Iceland holiday.

Borgarnes was settled in Iceland’s earliest days, over a millennium ago, and has long been occupied by fishermen; the village was not to substantially grow, however, until the 20th Century when Iceland’s infrastructure boomed, and it became an essential gateway to the country’s north and the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. The town is now home to two museums, the Settlement Centre and, curiously, the Centre for Puppet Arts.
