Akranes is just a stone's throw away from the capital largest town in West Iceland with  aprox. 7.500 people living in the area. Hvalfjörður (Whale Fjord) gives an excellent opportunity to enjoy the unique beauty of Icelandic fjords, with its sloops, shores, canyons and waterfalls and its somewhat controversial history of whaling. The area is especially quiet and tranquil with few people around. Glymur, the highest accessible waterfall of Iceland (198 m) is located in Hvalfjordur
