Laugarbakki is a hamlet situated in a geothermal area
on the eastern banks of the renowned salmon river Midfjardara. According to
the Grettis-Saga this area was called "Langafit" in the past and a fateful horse fight
there. The first houses of the hamlet were built in 1933 and the
construction of the boarding
school, an Edda Hotel during summer, was begun in 1970.
Laugarbakki is an ideal centre for
excursions to Hvammstangi and around the peninsula Vatnsnes.
south along the salmon river in the interior, there are innumerable fishing lakes. At the farm Brekkulaekur,
south of the hamlet, hiking, riding, and fishing trips and tours are on offer.
