Sel Guesthouse is a cosy, nine-room converted farm in Skalholt. It is close to Iceland's Golden Circle, a small petting zoo, and all the adventure to be found on Lake Apavatn.
Location and Nearby
Skalholt is an unspoiled town with spectacular landscapes and dark night skies that make it the perfect for Northern Lights tours. Because of its low light pollution, the area is also a favourite among independent Aurora-chasers hoping to get a glimpse of this incredible phenomenon.
During the day, you can stroll around Apavatn Lake and even rent a boat to do a little angling (so long as you secure a fishing permit). Vörðufell mountain is a short drive away and a popular spot for glacier trips. If you’re travelling with little ones, Slakki petting zoo is a delight.
Furthermore, Iceland's famous Golden Circle is also close; Gullfoss Waterfall, the Geysir geothermal area in Haukadalur valley, and Þingvellir National Park can all be explored with half a day. This also places the guesthouse just over an hour’s drive away from the first site of the South Coast sightseeing route, Seljalandsfoss.
