Stopped here to see the thermal activity. Our guide explained how the water travels by pipe and it was fascinating to see the network of pipes and hot water/steam escaping. A small stand sells tomatoes ($3.00) grown in the area. Very informative if you are...More

Thanks to TA I knew this would be a bit underwhelming, but our guide insisted we stop by. Even some of the tourist books insist on stopping. TA reviews were right! There was a lot of construction going on blocking any real views. In the...More

If you pass this place go and take a look - but don't make a special journey. You can see some hot water bubbling out of rocks. That's it

Steam blasting out of the ground. Bubbling hot water. We love this stuff and always stopped to see them. This is a small roadside attraction. If you're driving by stop to see it. A nice photo op. It only takes 15 minutes to visit. If...More

Hot boiling water pulsating in spurts through the rock, with millions of droplets glimmering in the sunlight - magic. The forces which are making the water come to the surface are tremendous. It's very beautiful and dangerous. It would only take three seconds or so...More

Nice stopover when visiting the nearby waterfalls, but not worth a big detour. The water that flows here is boiling and sizzling, quite unique

The extreme temperatures of these waters help provide hot water to cities nearly 75km away, which is in itself impressive. There isn't much to see here, but if you're in the area, it is certainly worth a visit.

We stopped here on our way to Reykholt and Hraunfossar/Barnafoss. The site is quite small, but the bubbling hot water is interesting nonetheless! There is a lot of smelly steam around the place - which is kind of fun, especially with kids around. There also...More

A quick stop and photo opportunity. You can see the steam rising from the road and it is located right at the parking area. It is roped off so you can't get too close. There was even a tomato stand selling fresh tomatoes there in...More

I could sleep to the magical sounds of the water bubbling up from under ground. And to think it's over 100° C when it hits the water is crazy. This place is small, but impressive and worth the stop.
