Many of the best known Icelandic Sagas were written in West Iceland and the Saga Circle leads you to the footsteps of legends like the chief and writer Snorri Sturluson in Reykholt, the viking poet Egill Skallagrímsson in Borgarnes, the outlaw Hörður Grímkelsson in Hvalfjörður and many more. History becomes vivid with every step whether on the account of the Sagas, folklore or just tales of people and the matters of people, the scenes of the stories are everywhere. West Iceland is Saga land in all senses.
