Brjanslaekur Guide

Situated on the saw-tooth shaped southern shoreline of the Westfjords peninsula region of Iceland is the tiny port of Brjanslaekur. Seatours operates two passenger routes out of this terminal with fourteen going to the picturesque island of Flatey and the same amount going to Stykkisholmur in Western Iceland.

How do I get to the ferry port?
Brjanslaekur can only be reached via Route 62 which connects the port to the nearest village of Flokalundur. It’s an area of immense natural beauty. In summer, the still waters of the nearby Vatnsfjörður Nature Reserve mirror the ultramarine blues of the arctic sky and the shrub-covered hills lay silent save for the gentle harmonies of the wind. Travelling to Brjanslaekur can prove difficult due to the lack of available public transport links. The port itself consists of nothing more a single pier that juts into the narrow inlet of the sea and a staging area for departing vehicles.

What does the terminal offer?
This single-pier harbour looks over a chilly inlet of the North Atlantic Ocean and is surrounded inland by the steep-faced, rocky terrain that makes up most of the area’s landscape. Two passenger routes currently leave from Brjanslaekur port, both operated by Seatours lines. One service heads to the small island of Flatey to the south, while another sails slightly further across the sea to Stykkisholmur on the opposite peninsula of Snæfellsnes in western Iceland.
