The house is spacious and light, has 3 bedrooms, an open kitchen/dining room, living room and bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped with a big dining table for 8 people or more. Children friendly with indoor and outdoor toys. Big, comfortable sofa in the living room. TV and DVD and a selection of books and games. Ocean view from the windows and 2 min. walk to the beach where seals and birds can be watched. Patio with gas grill, table and 8 chairs. 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.

              Thorkelsgerdi II is located in the county Ölfus on the south coast of Iceland. The house is situated on a big lot by the ocean, with birds and seals as neighbors. Nearby is the famous Strandarkirkja, an old church which is believed to have special powers to aid success or good luck, an old lighthouse and a small coffee house that is open in the summertime. Selvogur is a 15 min. drive from the town of Thorlakshofn, where you find a swimming pool, a golf course, shops, restaurants and medical facilities. A further 15 min. drive is to the villages of Eyrarbakki og Stokkseyri, which are famous for their seafood restaurants and museums.

              Selvogur is perfectly situated for day trips to The Blue Lagoon, Gullfoss, Geysir, Jokulsarlon and other attractions in the south of Iceland.

              Golf: Only a 10 min drive from Selvogur is the Thorlakshöfn Golf Course, which is one of the finest 18 hole courses in Iceland, with spectacular ocean view.

              The town of Thorlakshofn also has indoor and outdoor swimming pools with hot tubs and waterslides, great for relaxing after a day at the golf course.
