Bláskógabyggð is a municipality in upper Árnessýsla district, west of the Hvítá river. To the south is the district of Grímsnes and Grafningshreppur and to the west it borders with Mosfellsbær, a community east of Reykjavík. The municipality was formed in 2002 through the merger of Þingvallahreppur, Laugardalshreppur and Biskupstungnahreppur districts. Residential centres have formed in Laugarás, Reykholt and Laugarvatn. The name of the municipality is taken from an area around Lake Þingvallavatn known as Bláskógar, or Blue Forests.
