Laugarvatn lies within the Golden Circle, a popular tourist route, and acts as a staging post. The town has a population of about 200, and lies predominantly along the west side of the lake. There is a boutique hostel called Héradsskólinn located in the town. The lake contains geothermal springs under its surface, making it a popular swimming spot with some warm patches along the shoreline year-round.
Iceland University of Education's division of Sport and Physical Education is located here.
