This outdoor phenomena can be reached via road 425 between Grindavik And Hafnir. The road is a gravel one and quite narrow in places however we managed to get to the place without any mishaps. There is a small gravel parking area but not much else and no admittance fee. It consists of a geothermal area full of sulphur and bubbling mud pools so the air around all smells sulphurous. A wooden walkway takes you round the whole area and offers excellent viewing opportunities. Young children should be watched as it is possible to stray off the path in some places.
We found the story of the disagreeable Gunnuhver, who seems to have ended up in one of these pools, quite entertaining especially since the story suggests that one can occasionally hear her scream and the place is full of hissing and high pitched whistles.
