Hotel Edda Laugar in Saelingsdal location

The Heart of History

This region's history is deeply rooted in the Icelandic Sagas, with Laugar near its centre. Laugar means "warm springs", and is still popular in the Snæfellsnes peninsula's unspoiled surroundings. Another favourite is the Leifur Eiríksson museum, dedicated to the first European to visit America. A boat trip on Breiðafjörður is another must-do, sailing among countless small islands on this beautiful fjord.
