  • Very rare nature wonder, small geyser erupts every 5 minutes, sometimes every 3 minutes. It's hard to describe, but looks amazing. There are some sleeping geysers with boiling water, additional care should be taken when walking around. Unfortunately I didn't see big geyser eruption (
  • Pretty cool area of geothermal activity with great views. Worth a visit for sure. Free parking and visitor centre on site
  • I loved this place. We took a bus tour in Iceland and this was one of 3 places we visited. It was so scenic.
  • Well worth spending a bit of time here, even more than one visit if you’re staying in the area, which we were. It’s just fascinating to watch. There’s a trail to take you to the top which is worth doing too.
  • Impressive! Beautiful! Nature in action. Nightly recommend, specially in the winter.
