Akranes is just a stone’s throw away from the capital, the largest town in West Iceland.
The Akranes Museum at Garðar is without a doubt the cultural centre of Akranes and a popular destination for tourists.
If you are into photography or just interested in exploring new things in Iceland you need to look at Akranes Lighthouses. Down by the harbour you will notice two lighthouses. The larger one, that is currently in use, is open to the public so you can go up and enjoy the view from there, and there is even a photography exhibition to enjoy in there.
Akranes Information Centre is situated in the Akranes Lighthouse.
