This region´s history is deeply rooted in the Icelandic Sagas, with Laugar near its centre. Laugar means “warm springs”, and at Laugar there is of course af swimming pool and a hot tub. There is also a small reconstructed geothermal pool called Guðrúnarlaug or Guðrún´s pool. The pool is mentioned in Sturlunga saga and Guðrún Ósvífursdóttir, one of the greatest women in the Sagas, used to dwell by such a pool at Laugar. A boat trip on Breiðaförður Bay is another must-do, sailing among countless small islands on this beautiful bay.
