“take your own food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

This was interesting to see the water shooting up, but the centre was pretty poor. I did hear afterwards you're better off eating at the hotel and the restaurant could not have been much worse in terms of food, service and value.

“Great site to visit.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

This place is similar to Yellowstone National Park in the U.S. The steaming and bubbling pools are fascinating to watch. The different colors in the pools were interesting, too. The geysers are wild to see irrupt. The sulfur smell is not pleasant, but it is still a very interesting place to visit. I would definitely recommend this place to checkout as you tour Iceland.

“Incredible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

We hadn't anticipated how good this place really is. The steam is so intense that it creates moments where you can't see your hand in front of your face. Then it clears and you see an amazing landscape with boiling puddles and steaming holes in the ground.

From the hot springs there is also a moderate walk to the coast and a light house.

Well worth driving by if you are in the area.

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

This was an unexpected treat. Just off the coast road, and signposted. If you are only in Iceland a couple of days and staying in SW corner, this gives you a good flavour of the geothermal landscape. This plus other attractions all within a couple of miles - there is the bridge across continents where the Mid Atlantic Ridge comes on land, plus the lighthouse and Great Auk tribute by the coast. All worth a visit.

“Stop off if you're passing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

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!
