The spacious lodge Tvera is situated in the secluded pristine environment of the widely untouched south coast of Iceland’s Westfjord. The lodge is centrally sited for a visit to many spectacular nature sights, would it be the puffins of the Latrabjarg cliffs, the unique red beach of Rauðasandur, all the natural geothermal tubs in the area - or just the herbal vegitation and the creeks on a refreshing hike from the entrance door of the lodge. The surroundings of Tvera are steeped in history with one of the first discoverers of Iceland, the ninth century Norseman Hrafna-Floki who gave Iceland it's name, choosing to settle here so he could enjoy the beautiful view over the bay.
Tvera can accommodate up to 10 guests, and is very close to the ferry harbor Brjanslaekur, where the car & passenger ferry from the town Stykkisholmur arrives, passing the cult-island Flatey on its way across the bay. It is also close to the road junction for the main town of the Westfjords, Isafjordur, hosting "Tjoruhusid" the best fish restaurant in Iceland. There is only a 25 minute panoramic drive to Dynjandi, the most beautiful and impressive waterfall of the Westfjords (100m high).
If booked for more than 6 people, a surcharge of €30 per person per night will apply.
Heading to southern coast or up north? We also run the quality cottages "Brekka" and "Langholt" in Hvalfjord just north of Reykjavik, "Holt" in the Golden Circle and "Hamragil" up North, by the town Akureyri.

Latrabjarg (Puffin Colonie)
To make a day tour out to one of the most interesting Puffin colonies in Iceland you will need to turn right at the impressive cliffs Latrabjarg (Bjargtangar) coming from Tvera and follow Rd 62 and then turn left on the Rd 612 and follow it to the end. On the way you can make a detour to the spectacular beach of Raudasandur by turning to the left in to Rd 614.
To make a round tour of the southern Westfjords for a day you need to drive via Rd 60 and 63 to the town Bildudalur, and take a detour on the gravel road that takes you 25 km from the town out to the area of Selárdalur and back. Then follow the Rd 63 through the towns Talknafjordur and Patreksfjordur to the Rd 62 and close the round at Tvera.
Why not head to the interesting island Flatey, you can leave the car at the pier of Brjanslækur, 2km to the west from Tvera and visit the island via ferry. Take the earlier Ferry from Brjanslaekur to Stykkisholmur, jump off at Flatey, and catch the ferry, which makes two trips in the summer time, back to Brjanslaekur 5 hours later.
