The perfect stop for school groups

Located in the south of Iceland in the town of Selfoss, the Selfoss Hostel welcomes intrepid travellers looking for a place to spend the night after a day of adventure. Conveniently located just off Iceland’s Route 1, this is the perfect stop for school groups exploring the south shores’ spectacular natural wonders, as well as the unspoiled landscapes and geographical gems inland.

Situated in the centre of town, the local supermarket, café and cinema are all within walking distance. The town’s geothermal swimming pool is also close by, complete with slides, hot tubs and a sauna, making it the perfect place to take a dip and unwind after a busy day exploring Iceland’s geographical wonders.
