  • So cool! You're not allowed to swim in it though. It's a really big pool underground, kinda like Harry Potter 6. Hard to get good pics though. Probably need a good camera + skills. Cool fissures aboveground too.
  • I wish we could still swim inside! The steamy water in this setting is very delightful. I loved the calm sound of water flowing from the dark end of the cave. Make sure you climb outside the cave to see the impressive broken ground.
  • Very nice small caves. You can easily access them by road and they have a parking lot. If you are reading this for Game of thrones.. It is the cave where Jon Snow had a little thing with his snow woman, season 03 episode 2. In case you hope to do the same he did... You can not bath there any more (prohibited and too hot) and probably not a good idea since a lot of tourists are coming to the place.
  • Very atmospheric subterranean hot pool. Snow made for a slippery entrance to the cave, but once inside it was tranquil, with only the soft bubbling of water to disturb the quiet. Climbing into the cave gave a sense of how alive the earth is in this part of the world - the cracked rock forming the cave ceiling made very easy to imagine the forces that created the spring. The water was definitely too hot to swim in - dipping a hand in was enough - but it would have been a very novel bathing spot for those who discovered it years ago.
  • Beautiful cave what also was used in Games of Thrones. This cave contains water with a temperature of around 40 degrees and has a blue color. I would really recommend this if you visit Myvatn!
