    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 »

    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.
