Hótel Borealis, Selfoss
Lovely stay!
We were between Thingvellir and the south coast and needed a place to stay. We were welcomed by John who couldn’t have been nicer! We were four so we booked a bungalow and it was wonderful. Two large rooms each with a bath connected by a inside door. Fantastic. Beds were great. Nothing in the vacinity so we ate dinner. It was good, service was great, our waitperson even told us about the app to look for northern lights and in line with Icelandic pricing.

Marvelous Winter Countryside Stay
Hotel Borealis is a wonderful property just inside Pingvellir National Park about 40 miles southeast of Reykjavik. The countryside is spectacular and the property is rustic, but cozy. We loved everything about it. Add the Winter full moon and you have a perfect stay.
