  • We did not pay to enter the lighthouse, but just walked around outside it and the views did not disappoint. Very picturesque. It was a great way to start our Ring Road trip.  more »
  • Just a regular lighthouse with a nice view. Very good surroundings for photoshooting. Worth a visit if you are in Akranes.  more »
  • Standard lighthouse, at time of writing 300Kr to climb up. Art on all floors is for sale. If you are passing worth a look.  more »

  • We loved our stay in Iceland and the Akranes Lighthouses were a highlight, because we met a very friendly man who is the host at the Lighthouse. He told us all about the area, explained that they frequently have musicians in the Lighthouse (there was a musician there when we visited), and told us about the history of the light. He was very nice!
  • Impressive view from lighthouse. Nice staff. Few tourists. I truly recommend this place. A quick stop just off Route 1. Kitsch spot with stones painted with national flags.
  • A nice little stop off the main highway on your way out to the peninsula. Great views from the top all around. Definitely worth the detour. Today, we were treated to two young women singing and playing the guitar and clarinet insid the lighthouse :)
  • It's a great little place very much worth a visit and a climb to the top. The interior is used as a gallery and occasional performance space, the accoustics are fantastic.
  • Very nice lighthouse. Talked to the manager who explained us that they organize musical performances inside the lighthouse. It has special accoustics.
