The Paradisarhellir Cave also popularly known as Paradise Cave is a famous attraction in South Iceland just near the Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Reaching the cave requires a small hike and a little climbing. The cave is quite well known in Iceland for a 16th century love story that is associated with it. A young man named Hjalti was in love with a well off lady called Anna. Anna’s brother was against the relationship and tried his best to stop it, so Hjalti had to run off and hide for 4 years in the cave. Inside the cave one can find many inscriptions said to be from the 16th century. The cave is an ideal place for tourists who don’t mind getting their clothes dirty and want some hands on adventure.
