Selfoss in Árborg

Selfoss falls under the municipality of Árborg. It is the largest residential area in south Iceland and is situated next to the Ölfusárbrú bridge. Selfoss was settled in 1891 when a hanging bridge was built across the Ölfusá river. At the time the bridge was the largest man-made structure in Iceland.

Around 1930 the town solidified when the Kaupfélag Árnesinga co-op and Mjólkurbú Flóamanna dairy processing plant began operations. Selfoss is the main centre of trade, services and industry in southern Iceland.
