Top Places To Visit in Akranes 6 Spots

Breioin, Akranes
Lighthouses always bring some kind of strange passion. They symbolise arrives, departures... depending on weather, they add something more intense to those rainy and sunny days. You can find dozens of them on the Icelandic shores. We've decided to visit one of them on our way to Grundarfjörður in Akranes, a small town to the North from Reykjavík, where you pass through a tunnel 5 kilometers long under sea. Grundarfjörður is situated between mountains and the sea. Can you imagine waterfalls, Icelandic nature, a very special hill and the sea in one scenery? Take a look at the picture below and tell me you wouldn't like to spend there a night or two to get a chance for the Aurora borealis to enlight the place with her magic.

About Akranes

Then the downhill just got plain fun…It maybe would have been a better plan going up this side – it’s really, really steep, but covered in scree and so an absolute nightmare to go down in any sense of safety. But we did, partly using “paths” that were there, and partly just wandering down through routes that looked like the rock surface was going to be stable enough. Once we’d worked our way down and off the hill (a bit over 200 metres, so nothing huge, but still a decent little climb from not much above sea level), we went a bit further up the coast, first to Akranes, where we didn’t really stop properly, but drove through and had a look around, and then on up to Borgarnes, where we did.
