Akranes Hostel is situated in an old and respectable house which used to be the town’s pharmacy. It is located downtown, close to the town square.

The rooms are comfortable and nicely furnished, with or without en-suite facilities. Our guests have access to two fully equipped kitchens, a spacious lounge and wireless internet.

In Akranes you will find a thriving sport and cultural life as well as The Akranes Museum Centre where you can among other things find the most extensive collection of Icelandic rocks, minerals and interesting fossils under one roof, a collection featuring the history of sport in Iceland and The Akranes Folk Museum.

Outdoor and nature lovers should find numerous things of interest. The westernmost part of Akranes, called Breiðin, with things reminiscent of the history of fishing in the area, reveals huge breaker waves in windy weather. The closeness to the sea attracts lots of different kinds of birds.

Akrafjall Mountain may be accessed by car and offers interesting climbs, and Langisandur beach is close at hand. Magnificent views may be enjoyed over Faxafloi Bay, the adjacent mountains and the surrounding areas.

North of Akrafjall is Grunnafjordur. Grunnafjordur is one of three wetland habitats in Iceland that are a part of the International Ramsar Agreement. The agreement was originally made in an effort to protect and utilize exceptional ecosystems particularly with stocks of ducks, geese and other wetland species in mind.

Akranes is a diverse and friendly community with thriving sports life and is close to both the capital and the saga rich areas of West Iceland.
