Set under striking Akrafjall (572m), the town of Akranes (www.visitakranes.is) lies at the tip of the peninsula separating Hvalfjörður from Borgarfjörður. Largely an administrative and factory town, it's mainly worth a stop for its lighthouse and its sprawling Folk Museum, with a restored boathouse, drying shed, church and fishing boats.
