Iceland (12) – Drangshlioll and Rutshellir

Upwards of 200 man-made caves can be found on 90 farms in South Iceland, and 41 of them have been declared protected sites.  They are virtually unknown elsewhere in the country.  These two sets of caves are located within minutes of each other on Highway #1.
