Tvera - A Quality Cottage with a View

Certificate of Excellence
1 of 41
Cottage -
5 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 11
Patreksfjordur, Westfjords Region
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 e...

Tvera sits quietly in the landscape but inside is a very comfortable and warm house that is very well furnished. The beds are extra comfortable. We were a party of 3 so had lots of space (there are 5 double/twin rooms).Everything we needed to cook...More

Thousand thanks -like we sometimes say in Icelandic- for this very practical and warming review. Our lodge Tvera seems to have brought its warm and welcoming ambience into these words of yours!

Gorgeous location in a position offering total relaxation. Complete quiet other than the ravens and nearby waterfall. Make sure you take all the shopping you need with you as the nearest shop is in Patrekfjordur around 40km away. The local hotel Flokalandur do offer a...More

Many thanks for your review. I'm glad to share my favor for this remote house with you -this is for certain where the everydays rush doesn't reach you.

About the neighbourhood
Nature pure. Hike as you like. Interesting gully with 12 million years old carbonated tree trunks is above the farm Brjánslaekur. Participate in a scheduled walk guided by the ranger.
Enjoy the great arctic char of the small trout farm just across the road. But if you want something else for dinner, there is a restaurant at the summer hotel Flokalundur; close by.
A really good restaurant, called Heimsendi (World's End) is at the town Patreksfjörður.
Car recommended
How to get there
Ferry: Brjanslækur: 2.0 km
You can either arrive at lodge Tvera by driving through the fjords from the South or North (North only in summer), but we would recommend at least one way by the ferry boat between town Stykkisholmur and the harbor Brjanslækur. Reg. renting a car, a normal passenger car is suitable for the summer (15% discount for our guests by Hertz), but you should rent a 4WD vehicle for the winter. If you need a real 4x4 vehicle, our guests get 15% discount by Isak ltd. When you have booked Tvera we'll mail you further info for the way and the stay. NB!: in the wintertime the main road can become closed for a while due to snow storms, and the 200 m long home run for lodge Tvera can become inaccessible because of snow, even for 4x4 vehicles.
