Visit a small island with big history

Flatey is the largest of the Western Islands on the Breidafjordur Bay and a popular spot for tourists. A trading post since the Middle Ages, a monastery was established here in 1172 and later, in the early 19th century, Flatey was one of Iceland's cultural high spots.

The island's church has a fresco by the contemporary painter Baltasar and there are many old, well-preserved houses to visit. Not only that, the island is home to a nature reserve and wild life sanctuary. To visit Flatey you have to buy ferry tickets at Seatours or on board of the ferry Baldur.
