IS - 310 Borgarnes
Tel.: (+354) 437 1600
Over a thousand years ago, Viking adventurers discovered a large untouched island in the north Atlantic and claimed the land for their own. A rapid period of settlement ensued and thus the Icelandic nation was born. The prime objective of the Icelandic Settlement Centre at Borgarnes is to dramatically recreate the fascinating sagas surrounding the birth of this island nation.
The Icelandic Settlement Centre is situated in the picturesque township of Borgarnes on the west coast of Iceland approximately eighty kilometers north of the capital, Reykjavik. This area is the setting for Egils Saga, one of the most graphic of the settlement sagas, and this historical context combined with the charming natural beauty of the site make it an ideal location for the Centre.
