  • Was fun to see the cave that everyone knows about from game of thrones. Regardless of that it is a beautiful place to see. It's crazy that places like this exist hidden from plain view. It just stinks...  read more »

  • Not a whole lot to see or do here. But, I nice quick visit. Very small caves with small pools of water that you just have to walk a couple steps down into to see. Make sure you visit when the sun is i...  read more »
  • Little cave to visit. Owners permit the free access to tourists. Easy to get in. We had the pleasure to visit this site by winter. It hadn't been impossible to reach, neither hard to find. Simply awesome. Especially contrast between cold of outside and the warmly water in
  • There's a parking lot close by. Double check the directions as we parked near the large center and had to walk 2km to the cave. Once you get there it is really cool! A scene in game of thrones was filmed here. You can crawl into the cave and see the geothermal inside and the steam coming off the water. You can bring a headlamp but we went during the day and it wasn't necessary.
  • These caves are small and a little off of the beaten path. My GPS and google maps took me back towards the big volcanic crater. That's just one main road too far away. To get there, make sure you turn onto the dirt road labeled 860 on your maps. Follow it until you find the parking lot. You can get to it from the 1 or 848, they both should have entrances. Also note that this isn't for any location in Atlanta, this is for the caves in Iceland near Myvatn National park. The caves are small, and swimming is forbidden since the 1970s when the water temperatures rose to 60C. They're definitely a neat little thing to see if you're passing through though.
  • A great spot in the cave for seeing hot water. You won't be able to bath (it's prohibited plus the water is quite hot). You'll see also a fail above it. All this make it a nice spot to visit.
  • Great for a short visit of 15 minutes. The warm water in the cave gives it great colour. Take the road coming from the north, since it's paved (South road is a gravel road)
