  • If only Jon Snow hadn’t made this place a GOT “gotta see” iconic place…..Small area to access the site and large tour busses do not mix. Would not recommend.

  • These are neat but on private land where you can't do too much exploring and you certainly cannot get into these hot pools.

  • This cave is beautiful, but it's really small so be prepared to share your viewing experience crammed in there with a bunch of other people

  • Small cave with hot water inside In winter the vapour will not allow you to take good pictures but will warm you from cold outside Two entries: one on the left from where you can see the sun entering into the nicest part of the cave. The other on the right, with some stairs and easy access, directly into the nice part of the cave but with not the best view for photos
  • Pretty disappointing. I have seen that they recommend wearing a swimsuit, however bathing is prohibited. The access is very narrow and dark. You see it in 1 minute. There is so much to see in Iceland that I do not recommend stopping here.
  • Surprisingly beautiful and warm cave. Spent about 20 minutes inside for photos/ to warm up. A tour bus came during the visit and then there was a line to enter the cave.
  • Very interesting place. You get to the spot and don't even know what awaits you. Warm water with blue tint to it.
  • Really cool, easy access. We went at 7am and there was already people in it! Water is quite warm, but not boiling hot. There are signs that forbid bathing tho...
