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 94 kilometres (58 mi) to the east of Reykjavík on the Hringvegur (Route 1) between Selfoss and Hvolsvöllur.
The village is offering good shopping facilities and a gas station. The volcano Hekla is nearby so it is possible to go hiking there as well as to make excursions to other tourist attractions such as Landmannalaugar or Þórsmörk.The founding of Hella started in 1927 when Þorsteinn Björnsson built a store over by the bridge Ytri-Rangá in the land of Gaddstaðaflatir. That founder of Hella was built a memorial at the celebration of Hella's 50 years since the founding of it at 1977 (source: Wikipedia).
There is not yet a cache placed in Hella and therefore I have decided to install a new one next to the bus stop at the touristic center.
There should even be enough time to log this cache when you are making the typical 15min stop at the supermarkets when travelling with the bus from Reykjavik to Landmannalaugar or to other Easterly destinations.
