Hella holidays

The name Hella is derived from a series of caves near the town that are said to have housed Irish monks at the time of Icelandic settlement. Today, it is a small agricultural community located on the banks of the Ytri-Rangá river with views towards the volcano of Mount Hekla. The area is popular for hiking in summer and a good base from which to explore southern Iceland. Every June, Hella also holds the Landsmót, the world’s largest Icelandic horse show.
