Situated between the Westfjords and the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, Hotel Laugar Saelingsdal has a fantastic location for those exploring these regions in depth. In terms of the former, the village of Reykholar, renowned for its abundant birdlife, and Holmavik, home of the Museum of Witchcraft and Sorcery, are 38 miles (61 kilometers) and 43 miles (65 kilometers) away.
Even the most distant parts of the region, such Dynjandi waterfall, the birdwatching cliffs of Latrabjarg, and Isafjordur, can be accessed by those with a bit of determination.
Dynjandi, which is 123.5 miles (199 kilometers) away, is one of the region's most spectacular features, standing over 328 feet (100 meters) tall.

Furthermore, this area is home to the Snaefellsjokull National Park, a stunning place named after its central glacier.
Other features include Mount Kirkjufell, which featured in Game of Thrones, Ytri Tunga, a seal-watching beach, and the Londrangar basalt plug, a birdwatching haven. There are also plenty of historic fishing settlements along the peninsula, some still thriving, like Stykkisholmur and Arnarstapi, some long abandoned, like Hellnar and Budir.
