Flatey is an island of the western islands, a cluster of about forty large and small islands and islets located in Breiðafjörður on the northwestern part of Iceland.

Lake Myvatn
Bubbling mud flats, lunaresque volcanic craters, newborn lava fields, and grassy shoals teeming with waterfowl; these are among the sights of the striking Lake Myvatn region, one of the most geologically active and stunningly beautiful areas in Iceland. In 1974, the lake was declared a national conservation area, and since then it has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country. Its name means “Midge Lake,” after the hordes of gnats that breed in the shallow waters (so bring bug spray), but the pesky insects – perfect food for fish – support the best trout and salmon fishing in Iceland. There are also more species of duck here than anywhere in Europe, 15 in all. Great Northern and Red-throated Divers, Slavonian Grebe, Whooper Swan, Greylag and Pink-footed Geese, Teal, Gadwall, Wigeon, American Wigeon, Pintail, Shoveler, Scaup, Scoter, Harlequin Duck, Long-tailed Duck, Barrow's Goldeneye (pictured below), Goldeneye, Goosander, Red-breasted Merganser, Gyrfalcon, Merlin, Whimbrel, Red-necked Phalarope, Arctic Skua, Redwing, Wheatear, Snow Bunting.
