A Photographer’s Delight
Akranes in West Iceland has been a special place ever since it was founded by two Irish brothers during the settlement era. Being part of the secure bay of Faxaflói, it must have attracted settlers throughout the centuries for both fishing and farming. The ancient market place is still one of Iceland's most important fishing towns, a 50 km's drive from Reykjavík and easily accessible via the Hvalfjörður tunnel.
Fertile lands
The Icelandic name Akranes can be translated to 'corn field peninsula', which suggests that it had been a fertile area in the days of the Vikings. As Akranes is a coastal town, the ever-present sea breeze easily changes one’s perception of the vastness and eternity of waves, sand and sky. A treasure trove for any thoughtful wanderer and for hunters of the moment,;Akranes may quite rightly be called a photographer's paradise, providing an inexhaustible number of fleeting photo opportunities, ever-changing according to the whims of nature.
