The Rútshellir Cave in South Iceland 1

South Iceland

The Cave of Rútur, or Rútshellir cave, is along the Ring Road in south Iceland. Several of these caves exist in these Eyjafjöll mountains, and this one belonged to a man named Rútur. Several different versions of this story exist, but at then end of each version, one or more locals end up dying - either Rútur himself or his slaves. Nevertheless, it is an interesting sight to linger at for a few minutes! Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
