The Caves of Hella
The Caves of Hella are a fascinating mystery. What we do know for certain is that the caves were made by humans. What’s more, there are signs that indicate the caves were in existence when the Vikings came to Iceland in 850 A.D. These underground spaces were almost certainly used as a dwelling place, but we can only guess at their inhabitants.
Walking through the cool underground rooms, it is easy to feel connected to the past. Little signs of human existence can be seen–there are some wall carvings of unknown age, a small altar and what is perhaps an old stove. Yet, the space emanates a particular atmosphere, making it easy to imagine what it might have been like in days of old.
Gourmet Fare and Live Music
For our guests who want to experience something truly unique, we offer a Viking feast inside one of the Caves of Hella. Hotel Rangá chefs will prepare a delicious three course meal that includes gravlax, lamb shank and a special skyr dessert. Enjoy live music as you dine by candlelight. Sip local beers, enjoy handpicked wines and think about those who once made these caves their home.
Because the caves are underground, they are pleasantly cool. We highly recommend that our guests dress warmly–an Icelandic lopapeysa and a woolen hat are a perfect choice. Children are welcome to participate in the cave dinner, and we offer their admission at half-price. Whether planning a romantic dinner or a family adventure, you will be sure to remember this unique dining experience inside an Icelandic cave.
