What Guests Said About Akranes:

    The Guðlaug hot tub on the beach is a 'must-visit'.

    The Guðlaug hot tub on the beach is a 'must-visit'. If the outdoor location is a bit wild for you, it is also situated right next to the sports centre which has a heated pool. Also; whilst I drove through the tunnel to get to Akranes, I recommend using the scenic route to get back. It does add a bit of time to your journey, but the landscape and scenery is fantastic.

    Very nice small town, in 40 min from Reykjavik and near to many attractions in Snaefellsnes Peninsula in Iceland, so it's perfect location to visit many interesting places around. The place to be in Akranes, for sure is a Lighthouse, since 1944, unique in Iceland which is possible to visit inside, climbing to the top. From the top you can see a beautiful panorama of 360° , this wonderful and romantic place offer some exhibitions and local music concerts. Climbe the Lighthouse! After climbing Lighthouse, may be you will be a little bit hungry, so have a nice lucnh or a dinner in Gamla Kaupfélagið can be very good idea. Very nice ambience, good local foog and local beer. Enjoy Akranes in every season!

    Akranes is some distance from Reykjavik, maybe an hours drive through a 6 km underground tunnel or 2 hours around the coast road. Don’t be put off though - the coast road leads through stunning views, there’s no delays or queues, its well maintained and passable in extreme weather- it’s a fantastic journey in itself. I wouldn’t say that public transport is particularly good though. There are no trains and buses are infrequent Akranes itself is a quiet residential area with an interesting fishing history. There are a few grocery stores, at least one open till late and the local pool is decent, maybe not to the standard of some of the other local spas and pools nearer the capital, but certainly better than Council facilities where I live.

    Quaint little seaside town with some interesting history.

    Quaint little seaside town with some interesting history. There are limited dining opportunities but Gamla Kaupfélagið is quite good with fresh local caught seafood dishes that will surely please. Drive the tunnel under the bay but don't miss the drive around bay on Hwy 47.

    Lovely town and great base to explore the beautiful Western Region of Iceland. Also easy access to Reykjavík. Good cinema (Biohollin), lovely new restaurant (Gamla Kaupfélagiðand) and a documentary film festival (IceDocs) in mid-July. A trip to the hot pool by the football stadium and the lighthouse are highly recommended.

    Our stay was wonderful! The house was so clean and had everything we needed for our first night in Iceland. We climbed the lighthouse and explored town. There's a cool underwater tunnel that connects to the town from the south (turn your car vent to recirculation of air) 😉. The owners provided great information about the area and places we planned on going. Thanks!

    We stayed here on our first night in Iceland and it was perfect. The couple who run the place could not be nicer, what a nice welcome. The shared living area and kitchen feel just like home, and the fridge was even stocked with a few things for breakfast. Before taking off in the morning we took a nice walk to the lighthouse and climbed it, what a treat.

    Everything about this Cabin and location was just perfect. I have been to Iceland many times and it can be hard to find a property like this. If you want to get away from it all to relax and explore Iceland's West and South West then this is the perfect location. The hosts were amazing to deal with as well. I would definitely book this property again.

    Coffee and tea all day in the kitchen. Big kitchen, too, and a large sitting room. Self checkin was super easy, and the location was great. Excellent value for Iceland, one of the best I found in the entire country. I would definitely recommend a stay here if you need a place to crash within a few hours of Reykjavik.

    We deliberately stayed at the Icelandic Lake House for the second time because we feel very comfortable there. The house is in a quiet location and incredibly cosy. You feel right at home. There is simply nothing missing. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds are comfortable, a hot tub invites you to relax.

    The property was more than we expected - we wished we could have spent more time there! The hosts are very kind and a accommodating and let us borrow their bikes to explore Akranes. Because of Covid we had the entire property to ourselves. This would be great for a family looking for a vase near Reykjavik.

    The instruction was very kind with all information I needed including getting into my room in detail. Me and my wife enjoyed the coffee the guesthouse provided. Might not be same for others, but it was best morning coffee we had in Iceland for me and my wife :)

    Very good kitchen and nice common space. The room had enough space and was quite comfy. It also quite close to Reykjavik so was quite nice location from the perspective where to stay on your first day in Iceland.

    There is a nice parking lot across the hotel. There are two kitchens en a few toilets. Near a gas station. It is only a short walk from a supermarket and a cute ice cream store.

    Perfect escape! Super helpful and kind hosting. Equally good location for family or adults, off the beaten track but near enough for exploring the west of Iceland.

    Friendly dogs and chickens on the property. Very pretty spot close to Akranes town. The bunk bed was comfortable and the sofa bed worked out fine to fit 4 of us.

    Clean room and comfy bed. Easy check in/out. Akranes is a bit out of the way but it is a good stop before heading back to Reykjavik.
