Description

The spacious cottage Tvera can accommodate up to 12 guests, but 8 is ideal. It is very close to the ferry harbor Brjanslaekur, where the car & passenger ferry from the town Stykkisholmur arrives, with a stop at the cult island Flatey. It is also close to the road junction for the main town of the Westfjords, Isafjordur, featuring the best fish restaurant in Iceland, and there is only 25 minutes panoramic drive to Dynjandi, the most beautiful and impressive waterfall of the Westfjords (100 m). In the West of Tvera there are some of the best possibilities viewing the Puffin at the cliffs of Latrabjarg and on the way you have the breathtaking view of red sand beach Raudasandur. A little further north is the abandoned valley Selardalur with a naiv-art exhibition.

Still the biggest value of this site is the peacefulness in the pristine environment of the widely untouched region, the Westfjords of Iceland, like you see by the story of one of the first discoverer of Iceland, the

Still the biggest value of this site is the peacefulness in the pristine environment of the widely untouched region, the Westfjords of Iceland, like you see by the story of one of the first discoverer of Iceland, the Norseman Hrafna-Floki (year 865 AD). He had the whole country for himself but chose to settle two km from where the cottage Tvera stands, at the coast with a marvelous view over the bay and the islands. If booked for more than 6 guests, a surcharge of € 30,- pr person pr night will apply.

We also run the quality cottages "Brekka" by the bay Hvalfjord just north of Reykjavik (HL 1717225), "Hamragil" up North, by the town Akureyri (HL 1747494) and "Holt" south of the great sights Geysir and Gullfoss (HL 7490738).

Location description from owner

The Westfjords 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.

Patreksfjordur

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.

“Cozy cabin with fantastic views”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2016

We spent three nights at the house, and loved every moment. We were well prepared for the isolation, and thankfully took the advice we were given to bring plenty of food with us. What surprised us was how well equipped and cozy the house was; we had been expecting something much more basic. We enjoyed making day trips around the area, and everyone (even the teenagers) enjoyed the sense of escape and immersion into an entirely new natural environment. The views over the water are lovely.

Owner's reply: Very glad to hear about your throughout positive experience at our Lodge Tvera. And I'm happy that our advises reg food are taken seriously:-). I hope you enjoyed some of the blueberries too, plentyful under the wild shrubs all around up here.
