Selfoss

Hello Selfoss! Even though this South Iceland destination might not feature prominently on every traveler's wish list, you'll find plenty of vacation magic here.

Selfoss Vacation Packages

The major city of Reykjavik lies 40 miles west of Selfoss.

Why not pay a visit to Kjarnholt to see Gullfoss Waterfall? You'll find Kjarnholt 25 miles northeast of Selfoss.

Nautholsvik Geothermal Beach, located 40 miles to the west of Selfoss, is essential viewing. Get your feet wet and inhale the fresh air at this charming place.

Put on your comfortable shoes and take a trip to Hjalparfoss, located 30 miles from Selfoss. Another good option is Strokkur, which is 25 miles away.

Are you curious about different religions? Head to Selfoss Church, a wonderful holy place.

Looking for some winter sports? The glistening slopes and trails at Skalafell Ski Area are merely 30 miles away.

Head to Kiðjaberg, 4 miles out of Selfoss. It's home to Urridafoss Waterfall and Kerid Crater. Alternatively, you could try Skalholt and Paradisarhellir Cave in Arborg. This destination rests 9 miles out of Selfoss.

When it's time to explore beyond Selfoss, visit a regional hub. Stokkseyri sits 13 miles away and serves up a varied list of attractions, like Draugasetrið, Veiðisafnið and The Ghost Centre. Húsið á Eyrarbakka and Sjöminjasafnið á Eyrarbakka are some additional sites if you've got time to kill.

Don't miss the opportunity to take your senses on a tour of the region's alluring bars and cafés.

Absorb the vibrant culinary landscape and sample some lamb and root vegetables. These two ingredients are among the most popular in the region.

Saltfiskur (dried and salted fish) and harofiskur (jerky type fish) are common meal choices for both tourists and local foodies alike.

No meal is complete without a sweet treat. Mondlukaka (almond cake) is guaranteed to fit the bill.

Witness a strong sense of national pride on the 17th of June for Independence Day.

Little else is as inspiring as a vacation is a gorgeous place, however, the time will eventually come when you have to head home. Rather than feeling disappointed that your Selfoss journey is drawing to a close, why not begin making plans for another?

Once you're packed and ready to catch your flight, remember that the closest airport is located 60 miles to the west.
