  • The cave, originating from the usual fault line that runs through the whole of Iceland, and that here is particularly lively, originated this cave, which is collecting water (clear) that is heated by the geothermal heat below (up to very high temperatures ... about 60° C until a few years ago, it is prohibited to make the bathroom). There is not much to see inside (which of course is not lit) if water clarity.

  • The power of the land, the clashes of plaques, the ridge ... A deep rift marks the evolution of the territory.

  • A little cave 擠 full of people here, a lot of people take the airport can see this beauty waiting in the future, the water is blue, temperature a little higher, be careful of security, do not build bubble in this Council's popular happy, there are dangerous.

  • This place probably got a lot more famous from Game of Thrones. Pretty cool short stop while in the myvatn area. 3 stars as I didn't find it as impressive/spectacular as other sites in Iceland and I wouldn't consider this a can't miss destination. I wouldn't go out of my way to see this cave but since it's close to other sites it was a cool stop. Too bad we can't go in the water anymore.
  • 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.
  • Famous for being in Game of Thrones. Nothing too special here at all, worth a look if you're already here. Shouldn't take you more than 10 minutes to check out.
  • 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.
