Selfoss is located in a varied and beautiful region, in the middle of the greatest tourist attractions of the country. You only have a 10 minute drive to the black sand seashores of the North Atlantic, one hour drive to the famous and very active volcano Mount Hekla and the uninhabited, wild interiour. Selfoss is half an hours drive from Thingvellir, a place of incomparable beauty - the historic Parliament site from the times of the Sagas. Only 70 kilometers away are some of the most renowned sightseeing spots in the country, The Golden Waterfall (Gullfoss) and the geothermal area with the one and only Geysir. Half an hour’s drive away is Hvolsvöllur and Fljotshlid, where Njal’s Saga takes place. In little more than an hour you can reach the spectacular attractions of the south coast, with glaciers, waterfalls and very impressive and varied cliffs. You can make a one day excursion to the national park of Skaftafell, surrounded by Europe´s largest glacier (possibly the best place in Iceland for relatively easy and magnificent hiking), and the famous iceberg lagoon, Breidamerkurlon, where you can sail amidst the icebergs.
