Within easy distance of both the golden circle and the south coast. The day trips suggested by the owner were really useful - the Secret Lagoon and Sólheimajökulll were our favs. Would totally recommend Bjalli. Thanks Maja!

The only negative is the area on the home description is out by quite a way, as Selfoss is a long drive from the actual location which is two minutes from Geysir!
