  • Two main caves with amazing water - amazing blue and clear water. It gets very hot in there as the water is hot and not suited for bathing (due to some accident a while ago it is now forbidden to bath...  more »
  • Arriving there just a mound indicating that at this place, the Earth has risen. The curiosity of the place is located underground in small caves of hot water (approx. 40 °). On the surface you can enjoy to see a huge hole from which emerges a slight smell of suffer.

  • I liked this place more than my husband did. He was freaked out by climbing over rocks inside. I loved it. It's not so big inside but really beautiful and peaceful with amazingly colorful water. Then ...  more »

  • You can't bath in here anymore. Don't forget to visit the crater and baths close to here. Wouldn't be worth it otherwise. This place is now frequently overcrowded as being a filming location of games of throne. The place is tight and you need to be very careful. It s very easy to be pushed in the narrow space. It can be confusing to arrive as there is a gate on the road to go. you need to open it manually as there is some goats that could escape. Dont forget to close behind you when you arrive or leave
  • Easily accessible by a short drive (2km) from the main road lies a small cave housing a natural hot spring. It is too hot to bathe in now but still makes a cool photo spot. I'd recommend coming in the morning so that you can get some natural light in the cave.
  • Cool spot to stop and take a look at. A small cave once inhabited by a criminal on the run, filled with a warm steaming nature bath. It’s on private property, so be respectful and read the signs!
  • Very crowded with tourists now. Worth the drive to pop in and take a picture. The water is super blue! Two entrances. They are clearly visible from the parking lot. Watch your step and mind your head so you don't hit it. I would have given it 4 stars but I didn't get to just sit and relax and enjoy the natural atmosphere because of all the people traffic.
  • Beautiful natural hot spring cave in Northern Iceland. No need to go here with a tour group if you have a rental car. This is also where a scene from Game of Thrones was filmed.
