Hella Overview

Nestled on the banks of the Ytri-Ranga, Hella is one of Iceland’s oldest towns. Initially home to Irish settlers, the town has gradually developed into a thriving tourist hub. The gushing Ytri-Ranga is an ideal spot for amateur fishing, although travellers at Hella can also partake in a number of other sports such as sledding and horse-riding.  Hiking is also a popular activity here, particularly at the hauntingly beautiful Hekla, the active volcano looking at a distance. Those interested in taking a hot spring dip could also make their way to the gorgeous Secret Lagoon located on the outskirts of Hella.
