Did you know that there are ancient caves in Iceland? These caves were all created by humans; however, it is a bit of a mystery who created them, and why. What’s more, some of these fascinating caves are located mere minutes from Hotel Rangá.

In the town of Hella, there are twelve caves on the land of Ægissíða. Four caves have been opened to the public and are thought to be some of Iceland’s oldest archaeological remains. You can book a tour at the Caves of Hella to learn more about these unique structures.

If you travel on further north to Laugarvatnshellar you will find two more caves, which could potentially date back to the year 874.

For many years the caves were used as shelter by shepherds, and in the early 1900s two different Icelandic couples transformed the Laugarvatnshellar caves into a small homestead and were known as The Cave People.

Contact the Hotel Rangá reception today to book a tour and learn more about Iceland’s many caves and their history.
