The South Iceland region
The South of Iceland sports some of the most spectacular sights this country is known for, and Sel is right in the heart of it all: Geysir/Gullfoss/ Golden Circel, Reykjavik and the BLUE LAGOON, volcano Hekla and EYJAFJALLAJÖKULL to name but a few, bird cliffs and black beach in Vik, the Westman Islands (day trip with ferry!), volcano Hekla museum and historical first settlement farm, hot river near Hveragerdi, walk behind Seljalandsfoss waterfall, in summer take the highlandbus to Lanmannalaugar for the day, and even drive all the way to the glacier lagoon! We have a list of day trips ready for you as well as maps!
In spring and fall especially the weather is considerably milder in the South than in the North of Iceland. From September until April you can see Northern LIghts, with a bit of luck. This country location is ideal as there are no surrounding lights detracting from the natural spectacle. The plot is fenced in and ideal for children to play in on a nice day while you sit on the deck and enjoy the view!
On the approach of cottage Sel you have views onto volcano Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull and the 2 Gislholt - Lakes. The landscape is hilly but open, with horse and sheep pastures all around, as well as some bushes and trees nearby. The next swimming pool with hot pot and steam room is less than10 min drive away. Only 6km away is a very good riding stable. You can shop for food in Hella or Selfoss, there are also crafts shops selling icelandic sweaters and more. We provide you with tips and a list of day trips in the area!
