Splendid modern exhibition on Mt. Hekla, one of the world’s most famous volcanoes, reputed in olden times to be the gateway to Hell. The exhibition provides insight into the overwhelming power of the volcano, and the way that Icelanders have lived with the mountain over the centuries. Various cultural events are held at the center and an art piece made from lava by Ragna Róbertsdóttir decorates the center. The building is beautifully designed by EON architects and won the Interior Design Magazine award in 2014. The Hekla Centre will provide guidance on the best routes onto the mountain. Other facilities include a fine restaurant and meeting / conference facilities.
