    This quaint cathedral in the tiny village of Skálholt, considered to be Iceland's first town, is a gem. Gorgeous church in a amazing setting, with a history museum in the basement is definitely worth a visit. Just reading the names and dates on the walls was fascinating, but then to read the stories of how these people moved these huge burial stones 30 miles over the land in winter by hand. Wow! Right next door is a hotel with easy access to restrooms.

    Selfoss is a small town in southern Iceland with nothing to do, but serving as a lodging base for the island tour.
    To enrich social life and tourist potential, town government started a program of rebuilding the town center. It's located just after the bridge when you enter Selfoss, by the old dairy factory (now a restaurant). You can see the map of what's planned to do - half of the project is done, while the rest should be finished in two years.
    Houses and shops look cute, however theme park like.
    Anyway it was nice to walk around as you have nothing else to do after dinner.

    We were lucky enough for this to be a stop included on our day tour of the area. The gallery has the warmth of a living room and the intimacy of my grandfather’s workshop. Our host was gracious and generous with his time, telling us about his artistic process and the stories behind the works in the gallery. We even got a sample of his musical talent on the large organ. Get off the beaten path and visit this lovely place.

    The hosts are very nice, the house is cleanand very good equipped. The nature around is amazingly beautiful and if you can afford it you should definitely book a riding tour! I'm so in love with this place!
