About the neighbourhood
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!
Getting around
You need to get a rental car, in summer time a normal car will do, most of the time during low season even a small 4x4 will be safer and more comfortable for you. Try bluecarrental.
