Hotel Laugarbakki is a little piece of heaven on historical grounds
Right in between the country’s capital and the capital of its North, Akureyri, is a brand new and marvelous hotel that goes by the name Hotel Laugarbakki. The grounds all around are steeped in local history and not only the history of outlaws, sorcery and dignitaries. In the year of 1244, the only battle by the coasts of Iceland, The Battle of Flói, took place in its bay.
