The Underworld of the South



Iceland´s Hidden World

Guided tour around four mysterious man-made caves - Iceland´s oldest still standing archaeological remains.

Twelve man-made caves have been discovered on the land of Ægissíða by Hella. Four of them have been open to the public. All of them ancient - 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:
