We were just going for a drive in the area and saw the springs and decided to stop off. It's definitely worth a look, very very steamy and some little bubbling pools. There's a small car park but not much else here. It's free as well, so if you've got some time to kill it's worth a look!

Avoid wearing glasses when you visit here! Mine got totally steamed up - wish I'd worn my contacts!

But this was a very interesting place to visit. It doesn't take long to walk round, but it is interesting, and very hot (obviously) in the steam vents!

I studied Geology at University many years ago, so going to see some geothermal activity was a must for me when visiting Iceland. The activity is caused by Iceland sitting on the spreading join of the North American and the European plates (the mis atlantic ridge). Lots of bubbling mud, hissing fissures and plenty of hydrogen sulphide and sulphur smells. So unusual and so much fun. No entrance fee.

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.
