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. 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.

Activities

It has a very unique environment with the flat land and black beach stretching as far as the eyes can see. It is a long walkwith a little touch of history at the end of it where you will come at a crashed plane from the WW II.

Only 20 minutes away is this beautiful waterfall that you can walk behind of. Take an umbrella, wear a raincoat and boots or you might get wet! ☔

25 minutes away is the ferry Herjólfur that takes you to the Westman island. A small town on an island just off the shore of Iceland, it's also an active volcano that last erupted in 1973. You can still feel the warmth on the soil and even melted my shoe from walking there! An awesome local activity is to "sprang" on the cliffs (must try if visited!).
