I first visited Breiðafjörður’s Flatey island during the summer of last year, opting for a three-night stay in the hope of discovering just what makes this reclusive locale so special. Those looking to include a visit as part of their Iceland itinerary can reach Flatey by taking the Baldur ferry between Stykkishólmur in the Snaefellsnes Peninsula and Brjánslækur town in the Westfjords.
