Tourist Information Centre, Borgarnes
A new Tourist Information centre has opened in the most popular spot in Borgarnes where most travellers take a break or fill their tanks before heading west, north or south. Located in Hyrnatorg, the shopping centre next to the Hyrna restaurant and the N1 petrol station in the centre of Borgarnes, this modern office has details on a wide range of information covering the whole of the West of Iceland. Whether you’re looking for accommodation, restaurants, activities, tours, nature, culture, museums - or any place of interest, this is the place to visit.  Not only that, but you can also get information on the other areas in Iceland, all from the one office. Look for the big black information ‘i’ on the window. Open 5 days a week from 9 to 5 throughout the year and on weekends in summer.

You could drive all over this region and never know the fascinating history, the hidden secrets, the off-the-beaten-path places to visit - but the Information Centre can fill you in on all this and more. Now there is a new Managing Director of the West Iceland Marketing Bureau, Rósa Björk Halldórsdóttir, who wants to help make your visit the best it can be. “We want to make West Iceland more visible, since we have a lot to show people. Of course, one of the tasks I will take on is to help the tourist companies to build up the infrastructure to better welcome guests to our area. It is already good, but we want to improve.

We have a lot of interesting places. For example, this is one of the best bird-watching areas in Iceland. Snæfellsnes is the only area of Iceland that has a Green Globe certification of Environmental protection & policy.

“In the West of Iceland, made up of 10 municipalities and many small towns and villages there is history behind every stone, sites of the most important Sagas with many fascinating immersive exhibitions. Culture is so varied between the different communities - whether horse riding, dancing, music and literature, arts and crafts almost everywhere - a list that barely scratches the surface. In the Icelandic countryside, there is a high degree of active participation in all kinds of cultural activities. All kinds of sports and outdoor activities are popular throughout the area, with some of the best kayaking in both sea and rivers. Adventures abound on the glaciers, whether snowmobiling, hiking, superjeep tours, climbing or seafood buffets on ice. Boat trips offer fishing, amazing birdlife that you can get upclose and personal with, seals, whales, including blue whales. Nature itself offers a grand variety from endless black rocky or soft white beaches, mountains, currently dormant volcanos, fertile farmlands, infertile lava fields, thousands of islands, waterfalls, rivers, canyons and geothermal heat. Sustainable and ecological lifestyles and experiments abound from the  harvesting of eggs and eider down to self-sufficiency, using geothermal heat to grow food.”
