Stop-overs in Flatey Island: A place where time stands still.
Over the summer many visitors choose to visit the beautiful island of Flatey renowned for its bird life. It's popular to take the morning ferry from Stykkisholmur and return in the evening or continue on to Brjanslaekur (the harbour in the West Fjords). If you are taking your car with Ferry Baldur across Breidafjordur bay but want to stop in Flatey ... this is no problem! We just send your car across the bay while you relax in Flatey, and then it will be waiting for you on the other side when you are ready to leave this wonderful island (at not extra charge).
Flatey and its surrounding islands are, as a creation, believed to have forged from under the weight of a great glacier during the previous Ice Age. In terms of size, Flatey is some 2 km long and about one km wide, of which most is flat land (hence its name, meaning "flat island" in Icelandic) with scarcely any hills to be found.
The island has only the one single road, which leads from the ferry dock to the so-called "old village", which consists of some beautifully restored and painted old houses of the island's original inhabitants. Most of its houses are from the 19th century so strolling about gives one the impression of traveling back in time. There is, of course, also the old harbour.
The island has a seasonal habitation; most houses there are occupied only during summer. In winter, the island's total population is five people
On the Island you´ll fin a new hotel 'Hotel Flatey', which is in two beautifully renovated old houses. The hotel also operates a charismatic restaurant that specializes in local products.
Flatey Island is the ideal place for travelers that want to explore the more remote areas of Iceland. It is the ideal place to relax and enjoy the best of Icelandic nature.
There is a lot to see and experience in Flatey Island: unique nature, birds, the church with the stunning artwork, stillness, the feeling of absence of time, the old library, historic sites and the old village ... and when you get hungry you can try some of the delicious homemade delicacies from Hotel Flatey.
