Akranes Accommodation

Although the Book of Settlements, in the Icelandic Sagas, mentions the name Akranes, understandably the town didn’t exist until centuries later.  Like most towns and villages by the seashore of Iceland, Akranes traces its origin to rich fishing grounds right out by the shore. For centuries, the bay of Faxi, or Faxaflói, was a primary source of provision for inhabitants in Iceland.
