Brákarey Island

Brákarey Island is located in Borgarnes, about an hour’s drive north of Reykjavík. This old harbor town is full of Icelandic Saga history, and the Settlement Center is well worth a visit. It illustrates some of the sagas, including the story about Þorgerður Brák – slave to Skalla-Grímur and nanny to his son Egill. Brák stopped Skalla from killing his own son. He was still so enraged that he chased her down and killed her. Many markers are placed throughout the town marking events from the sagas.
