Relax and Play on the Seashore
Looking to escape from the vibrant capital of Reykjavík? The lovely seaside town of Akranes, West Iceland, is only a short drive away. You can also catch the new ferry across Faxaflói Bay – perhaps bringing your bike.
Play a round of golf, have a family picnic at Garðalundur, take a dip at Jaðarsbakki geothermal pool or stroll along Langisandur Beach – Akranes is the perfect place to relax.
Located in a charming house that used to house the local pharmacy, Akranes HI Hostel is a fascinating piece of history in and of itself.
