CAVES OF HELLA
Twelve man-made caves have been discovered on the land of Ægissíða by Hella on the South coast of Iceland. Four of them have been open to the public (guided tours only). The historical site is Iceland's oldest still standing archaeological remains. Some believe the caves to date even further back than the settlement of the Nordic Vikings.
The wonders of the Caves of Hella include ancient crosses, wall carvings and carved seats.
Mystery surrounds the caves and for centuries people have wondered:
Are the caves the handiwork of the Celts?
Were the caves a place of ancient worship?
Caves of Hella offer a great opportunity to explore these historic caves in Iceland. Join us to discover the secrets they hold and experience the magical Underworld of the South.
The Caves are located right next to Route 1 (the Ring Road), an approximately hour drive from Reykjavik.
