Driving up to the hot springs it looked really large but when you are there it is small. Yellowstone is much more impressive. There is a really nice walk way to view but a previous walkway is till they’re broken down and in the hot springs which takes away the beauty. Why did they not remove this. But a nice walk and yiu can choose to walk all the way to the lighthouse or drive to to it.

We visited the hot springs in February 2023. It is easy to drive to from Reykjavik, just check the weather/road conditions beforehand if you are visiting in the winter. Most of the grounds were snow covered but you could smell and see the hot spring and steam coming off of it. A nice, free experience!

A wonderful place where hot springs come to the surface in the form of mini geysers. We were there in the winter, in minus temperatures, so the bursting water vapor froze and settled in the area. Beautiful! In the distance, the Reykjanes lighthouse and a modern thermal power plant.

We rented a car and drove to the springs. The ride was easy, even at 3:00 am in the rain. We had planned on going to the blue lagoon but the flight was delayed and the lagoon was closed.

Plan B was still fun. We drove by a few light houses, stopped at the beach and did some walking on Mars?? Check out Iceland meets space.

A really impressive place to stop and see such a fantastic sight. We took a drive down the coast and stopped to take some pics and have a nosy. Our little girl was so excited. You don’t need long but it’s a must see.

This was a little stop, you don't need much time here in my opinion. Interesting to see the different colours of the landscape and the water spouting. There's a little walk if you fancy it to get other perspectives, but you can equally just have a look from the viewing platform just up from the car park. There's a plaque there that explains the alleged legend associated with this landmark. Parking is free too.

It was our first geothermal area ever, so it made an impression. It's close by Reykjavik and the Blue Lagoon and it's easily combined with some other sights around the area. Iceland has much bigger and more beautiful areas like this (e.g. Geysir), so if you plan to travel further then this is not necessarily a must see.

This is an absolute must. We went there and we want to go back. The hot springs are amazing. The views are awesome and the staff is extremely courteous. We were debating whether going to Blue Lagoon or this one and we were advised to go here because the other one is very touristy.

We visited the Geysir as part of the Golden Circle tour, unfortunately we only had about 40 minutes which we didn’t feel like was long enough. We spent a fair amount of time in the gift shop but I’d advise to save and make the most of your time watching the hot springs as gift shops in Reykjavic all sell the same things and a bit cheaper too.

If it’s a windy day be clever about where you stand when the geysir goes off as it’s extremely hot water.

We managed to see it erupt three times in the time we had (the first time it made me jump as I wasn’t expecting it!) And you can get some really cool videos, I captured it in slo-mo on my Iphone XS which made me feel like a pro photographer as the result was great and everybody loved it!

It was amazing to watch and definitely worth a visit, you don’t need to spend more than an hour and a half there depending on whether you’re having food or not.

Allt það besta!
