Gesthús Selfoss is a family firm in the heart of Selfoss. The place is surrounded by high trees that give it privacy and quietness. Sometimes we say we are the best kept secret of Selfoss. We are proud of what we offer; 22 rooms in wooden bungalows and 2 luxury summerhouses. The bungalows fit 1 -3 adults and they have private entrance, kitchenette and WC with shower. The guests have free access to geothermal hot tubs, washing machine, dryer and WiFi. The summerhouses are more luxurious with 2 bedrooms, private hot-tub, fully equipped kitchen and big terrace. Of course there are plenty enough parking spots for our guests for free. 

The campsite is one of the best in Iceland because of it's great facilities and quietness. Our guests have access to a service center with WC, hot showers, a big dining room and a kitchen where they can cook. We offer free Wi-Fi connection in public areas. There are washing machine, dryer and shoe-dryer on site for guests. Guests are welcome to relax in our warm and nice hot tubs in the evening, open from 17 - 23. Our campsite is great for guests preferring comfort in motor-homes, campers and caravans. We offer electric hook-ups in 40 pitches, motor-home toilets can be emptied at a chemical disposal point and drinking water can be filled. 


Your Hosts


We are Lísa and Óli, parents of three grown up children, who all have left the nest. We have been running guesthouses in Iceland for 15 years so we have put all our experience in Gesthús Selfoss. Our ancestors were german and danish, so we are able to welcome you in these languages too. 


is considered the good soul of the house. If we have large groups to visit, she is the most important; because then she cooks Icelandic specialties, trying her own creations and treats both the palate and the heart of our guests with it. In her spare time she enjoys spending time in the wonderful Icelandic nature, weaving wool or watching a good Scandinavian film


is the conductor of the orchestra "Gesthús". He is the contact person for questions of any kind, very organized and takes care of the fine motor things on the estate. If a miracle happens and he has nothing to do, he enjoys being outside and play golf or watch sports on television.

Our hens love trees

Our hens seem to love height. They often climb the trees around their cage and sometimes they even sleep there! They are hard workers and make eggs for the breakfast buffet we server every morning.
