Iceland´s Hidden World

Guided one hour tours of four mysterious man-made caves - will open again 2021

Admission fee:

  • Adults 2900 ISK

  • Children (0-15) Free

Twelve man-made caves have been discovered on the land of Ægissíða by Hella. Four of them have been open to the public. The caves are Iceland´s oldest still standing archaeological remains - with some believed 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 handywork of the Celts?

  • Were the caves a place of ancient worship?

Discover the secrets and experience and the magical Underworld of the South.

The Caves are located right next to Route 1 (the Ring Road), an approximately hour drive from Reykjavik.
