Flatey Island - where time stands still
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.
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.
