Flatey BL06-07-05

 

Flatey is the largest island in Breiđafjörđur. It has been occupied since earliest times. Once a monastery stood here but now a collection of brightly coloured 19th century wooden houses cluster around the harbour on its northern shore. The island has a rich and diverse plant life which attracts many thousands of birds during the breeding season. Much of the island is set aside as a nature reserve at this time.
