Main Description

Discover Iceland on your own with our self drive package. During the days you can follow our suggested itinerary or of course do more ( or less). The hotel is perfectly located close to some of our main attractions. The golden circle with Gullfoss and Geysir is very close and a must for every visitor. To the east it is short to the famous waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. If you feel adventurous you can even drive all the way to Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. The complementary GPS makes sure that you do not get lost in the land of fire and ice.

Your accommodation is at the comfortable Hotel Selfoss for all four nights. So after an exciting day of driving you get the option to relax at their spa or at their bar. For dinner we recommend you enjoy the view from their Riverside Restaurant with its marvellous view over river Ölfus. 

Included

  • ‍4 days of car rental. Please note that the car rental calculates the price in 24 hour steps so you have to return the car at the same time as you pick it up, otherwise additional costs may apply. 
  • ‍GPS, free additional driver and unlimited mileage.
  • 4 nights at Hotel Selfoss with private facilities and breakfast.

Tips and Trivia

Itinerary

Day 1
Arrival

Upon arrival in Keflavik you receive your car. Depending on your arrival time you can drive directly to your accommodation. If you have time you can discover the Reykjanes peninsula. Or add a stop at the Blue Lagoon. Just remember to buy your tickets in advance since it tends to be fully booked.

After passing lava fields you visit the geothermal areas of Krýsuvík and Gunnuhver. In the fishing village of Grindavík you can enjoy a lobster soup as lunch before reaching the bridge between continents where you can walk from America to Europe and back in just a few seconds or stand on both continents at once. On the peninsula you can visit lake Kleifarvatn which is not connected to any river but receives and looses its water underground. 

Then you can check in at Hotel Selfoss where you will spend the next nights. Ask the staff about their services such as the spa or restaurant.

Day 2
Golden circle

You can visit the Gullfoss waterfalls, or golden waterfalls at the edge of the highlands where Hvitá river plunges down 32 meters in two steps. The world famous Geysir, which gives geysers world wide their name. And the beautiful Thingvellir National Park where you can walk between the continental plates.

Interesting stops you can add are:

  • The crater Kerið
  • The waterfall Faxi which is not as famous as Gullfoss but worth a visit.
  • For dinner you can check out Tryggvaskáli which is right opposite of the Hotel. 
Day 3
South shore

Along the way you pass Seljalandsfoss waterfall where you can walk behind the waterfall itself and through to the other side. 

Another stop is the famous and much-photographed Skógafoss waterfall, with its impressive 60 m drop (196 ft). The waterfall has a huge flow of water which on sunny days allows us to see a rainbow or even a double rainbow in front of it.

Near Vik by the black beach Reynisfjara you find the restaurant "black beach" which since it opened a few years ago has become increasingly popular.

Additional stops:

  • The Museum in Skogar which gives you an insight into the life in Iceland of the past.
  • The Lava centre in Hvolsvöllur where you can learn more about volcanic activity in Iceland. 
Day 4
Reykjavik or free day

If you did not have the time upon arrival you can drive to Reykjavik. You can explore the city and perhaps join us on a whale watching excursion. Alternatively you can visit the Bobby Fisher center in Selfoss for example.

Day 5
departure

Depending on the time of your flight you can drive directly to Keflavik airport or vist Reykjanes on the way.
