Key Info
  • Beach / lakeside relaxation
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car essential

One of the first discoverer of Iceland, the Norseman Hrafna-Floki (year 865 AD), had the whole land for himself. He chose to settle down by the coast, two km from where the cottage Tvera stands, with a marvelous view over the bay and the islands.

Cottage Tvera is very close to the ferry harbor Brjanslaekur, where the car & passenger ferry from the town Stykkisholmur arrives. It is also close to the road junction for the main town of the Westfjords, Isafjordur, and there is only 25 minutes panoramic drive to Dynjandi, the most beautiful and impressive waterfall of the Westfjords (100 m).

But the biggest value of this site is the peacefulness in the pristine environment of the widely untouched region, the Westfjords of Iceland.

The West Iceland/Fjords region

The cottage Tvera stands almost on the cross roads for the West, North (Isafjordur) and South (the ferryboat). The colorful bird, the puffin can be approached up to one meter distance at the cliffs of Bjargtangar (Latrabjarg), and the red sands of Raudasandur are the one of few places of Iceland you can go sun and sea bathing, that is in a sunny weather, which is indeed quite typical for this region of Iceland. Only 25 minutes away is the most impressive waterfall of the Westfjords, Dynjandi (100 m high). The ferryboat "Baldur" is the connection to the peninsula Snaefellsnes across the bay Breidafjord, passing by the only inhabited island in the bay, the legendary Flatey. Great natural, geothermal bathing possibilities all around.


Nature pure. Hike as you like. Enjoy the great arctic charr of the small trout farm just across the road. But if you really want something else for dinner, there's a restaurant at the summer hotel "Flokalundur" close by.
