This place is really interesting on a geological sense. The waters gets into the soil 1km deep, boils in contact with magma then goes back to the surface to form sulfurous steam vents and blue-yellow-green hot pools. Just follow the marked trails and you won't lose a limb.

Gorgeous colors, bubbling hot mud, huge smoking geothermal releases. Does have a strong sulphuric smell but it is worth that to see this incredible area

This was our first time visiting a geothermal hotspot - there were 2 active fumaroles and bubbling mud pots. Was a nice stop on our way to Lake Myvatn. We probably spent 30 minutes walking around. Just be prepared for the smell of sulphur when you are here.

A great place to visit, right off the ring road. Bubbling mud pots & steaming fumaroles, right beside the path. We visited on a March day, and while it was not very busy, the paths were quite slippery and very muddy. Bring your hiking boots and enjoy an up close visit. It's worth it.

If you have not been to a geothermal hot spot before, this is a good first experience. There are some bubbling mud pots and the highlight is the ability to get up close and personal with a number of very active fumaroles. I was there in the early morning in mid-March and our group had the place nearly all to... More

We had an amazing day trip of caves, thermal pools, waterfalls and then here. It's probably not something you can see easily twice in your life so I suggest if your within 100km go see it for sure!!

An amazing volcanic experience made even better by the surrounding ice and snow. Desolate but intriguing.

We visited this place on a nice sunny day. Great for some phot ops. The sulfur smell is pretty strong so be aware if you are bothered by silver. Also, bring along some disposable booties for your shoes, your tour operator or car rental company will appreciate it. The steam vents are loud and in the cool are very dense.... More

Not the mud pits, but all of them are packed together so it's a little bit confusing, still, jut follow the steam and you will find them.
