We stayed in Akranes in 2013. I have fond memories of an evening with David Bowie wine. In the morning we drove to the lighthouse before heading north as the rest of the village is rather industrial. The weather was fabulous, which resulted in these pictures.
Addition March, 29 2016: The Reykjavík Grapevine did a piece on Akranes. Apparently there are concerts in the lighthouse. They also interviewed the guy who repairs the pretty lighthouse. And you get a view of the rest of the village.
