Quick reference travel guide Borgarfjordur:

Hvanneyri is a hamlet, a university faculty for agriculture, an agricultural college, and a parsonage. The present church was built and consecrated in 1905. Its altarpiece shows Jesus with the local landscapes in the background. Daldtunguhver is probably the most voluminous natural hot spring of the world. Its average flow of 98°C hot water is 180 litres per second, about 40% of the natural hot spring water appearing on the surface in the Borgarfiord District.
Reykholt is one of the most important historical places in Iceland and a cultural centre for centuries. Here was the home of Snorri Sturluson, the chieftain and historian, from 1206 until 1241, when he was slain by his enemies. Husafell is in one of Iceland’s few woodlands and is therefore popular among the natives. Enroute are Hraunfossar and Barnafoss waterfalls, where nature seems to have been playing at wonders. Surtshellir, one of Iceland’s largest lava caves, are operated in the area.
