Hella is a small town in southern Iceland on the shores of the river Ytri-Rangá and has, as of 2011, 781 inhabitants.Hella is situated to the east of Reykjavík on the Hringvegur (Route 1) between Selfoss and Hvolsvöllur.OverviewThe name of the town comes from caves near the river. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Sólheimajökulll and Gljufrabui Waterfalls. Escape the urban bustle at Mýrdalsjökull and Haifoss. Venture out of the city with trips to Gjain (in Svartsengi), Vik (Solheimasandur Plane Wreck, Reyniskirkja Church, & more) and Skogar (Kvernufoss, Skogafoss, & more). And it doesn't end there: trot along with a tour on horseback, get outside with Gljúfrafoss, witness a stunning natural landmark at Geysir, and take in the dramatic scenery at Urridafoss Waterfall.
