    We stayed in Hella and did one day trip driving along with southern coast to ViK with several stops. We also did another day trip to the glacier lagoon/diamond beach. The glacier lagoon takes about 3-4 hours from Hella one way so you might be driving in the night towards the end of the day.

    We are staying in Hella and would like to go horseback riding. Any suggestions? We are all beginners. I would also welcome sights/places to eat around Hella. We are already going to do the Golden Circle, Vik, and the glacier lagoon.

      Hella is a well-located base to explore the south. Hotel Stracta is nice. The village has a small supermarket, a bakery and a couple of restaurants.

    Hella is a functional little town that is similar to most towns along the southern coast. There are some great guest houses near there. Last week we stayed at Fagrabrekka… highly recommend!

    Hella’s a lovely area. If you want a lavish dinner, book at the Hotel Ranga nearby. 🙂
