Huge lawn, perfect for outdoor activities such as football, softball, Frisbee and kite flying.

Perfect either for the activity filled family vacation or the romantic getaway!


The Blue Lagoon: The Blue Lagoon is an hour's drive from Selvogur.

Seltún: Some 25 km from Selvogur (about 25 min drive) is the famed Krýsuvík geothermal area, Seltún, with its amazing solfataras, boiling mud springs, blowing steam vent and astonishing palette of colour. Just a few minutes’ drive from there are the stunning Krýsuvíkurberg cliffs, where sea birds by the thousands nest and the rolling waves of the Atlantic crash against the rugged shore. Both are examples of amazing natural beauty.
The landscape at Krýsuvík was formed by volcanic activity and upheaval.
The Grænavatn, Gestsstaðavatn and Augun lakes are explosion craters created by volcanic eruptions at various times. Of those, Grænavatn lake is the largest, some 46 meters deep. Its water is green due to thermal algae and crystals which absorb the sun.

Eldhestar - Horse rentals and guided tours. They offer itineraries that range from one or two hours to several days to suit riders of all ages and abilities. All their tours begin at their farm Vellir, just 30-minutes drive from Selvogur.
