Selfoss

4.3
Sitting on the banks of the picturesque Olfusa River, the laid-back town of Selfoss provides a good location to relax and enjoy some of the country's natural delights. It is a new town, even by Icelandic standards, so there is less in the way of historical architectural and cultural sights. Still, you can enjoy activities like fishing, horseback riding, and boating here. The town's proximity to Iceland's agricultural heartland inspires many of its restaurants to use local produce. Selfoss is in South Region. Plan your trip to Selfoss and other Iceland destinations using our handy Iceland trip planner .
