In OUR Reykholt in the South of Iceland near Selfoss town (please note that THERE ARE TWO Reykholt’s – THE OTHER ONE is in the West of Iceland, near Borgarnes, in Borgarfjörður) we have various activities and two great restaurants.
Here is a warm municipality swimming pool with two hot tubs, playing grounds, camping site and walking paths.
