Home / Iceland/ South Iceland/ Hella & Selfoss


Holidays in Hella are all about nature and the breath-taking landscape. The distinctive mighty Mount Hekla volcano towers over the landscape at 1491 metres high covered in snow and small glaciers. A great place for rambling, snow adventures or watching the northern lights dance above. The Ytri-Ranga river is one of the best rivers for salmon fishing and seeing spectacular waterfalls.

Famous for its Icelandic horses and Landsmot pony show, horseback riding is one of the best ways to explore the countryside. Discover Hella’s history and geology of the volcano at the Hekla Centre or visit the village of Keldur, home to the oldest traditional moss-covered houses still standing in Iceland.
