About
You can boil an egg and have a taste of our hot spring bread which is baked using the geothermal steam. Do not miss the geyser that erupts frequently in the park, and make sure to take a look inside the greenhouse.

    If you’re not into boiling eggs, skip it.
    Don’t expect too much. A geothermal site were the water drained and is now mostly empty craters. After seeing the before photos I am disappointed I missed it in its heyday. That being said, people seem to really enjoy boiling the egg and eating the lava bread. There really isn’t much else. Honestly, of all the things I did in Iceland, this is the one I would have skipped to do something else.

    A hidden gem
    A real little treat in this small town. Geyser was impressive and great to boil an egg in the boiling spring water. A lovely warm welcome when we arrived and staff were really helpful and informative. Good value and worth a quick stop.

    Charming little park
    This is a charming little park that you must pay to enter. There is a real, active (and impressive) geysir on site as well as thermal water which you can cook eggs in and a thermally heated greenhouse. They also serve bread that has been baked in a thermal oven. There are interesting signs explaining the sites and history - ideal for families and those wishing to pass a bit of time. Those who have given negative reviews have unfair and high expectations - it is just a cute, small municipal park. The lady who works at the front desk is very helpful and kind.

    Peaceful interesting place to visit
    We stopped here on our way to check in at our Air BnB in Hveragerdi. It was very cold and windy so we didn’t stay long! Very friendly people, interesting to wander around, great Geysir (we preferred it to the Golden Circle Geysir!!) and fun to boil the egg in the boiling water and eat it warm in the cafe! Cute place for an hour’s stop.
    Dear Kathy, Thank you for visiting us at the Geothermal Park! I'm very happy you enjoyed your visit! I would also like to say thank you very much for the kind review! Best regards, Tammy

    Worth a visit for the eggs and local info
    Cooked our own eggs in the hot spring and had them with the lovely bread cooked in the hot springs. Had coffee with free refills which kept our hands warm whilst we were looking at the information boards outside (until the coffee froze!) Great for a little novelty and to learn a little about the local area. We got sprayed by the gyser and the spray instantly froze, so funny🤣. Cute little place and not expensive.
    Dear Guest, Thank you for visiting The Geothermal Park and for taking the time to write a review!! I'm happy to hear you had a nice visit other than getting water on you from the geyser :) Best regards, Tammy

My 20-yo grand-daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed going here, which includes a small cafe and exhibits in addition to the geothermal park.
I took her here because it's not far from Reykjavik and has geothermal vents, which she has not previously experienced.
It exceeded my expectations: conveyed various uses of the hot emissions, including using them to bake bread (traditional bread is available at the cafe); karma associated with abusing the events, and other goodies. I also liked being able to get a snack on site.

Hidden gem and something lovely to do on the drive back to the city.
Tammy and the crazy gardener were so lovely, open and informative.
Good value for money and a good thing to tick off your bucket list.
Cool experience cooking the egg and having the bread.

Oh my the best boiled egg and bread! The welcome was fantastic and loved the whole experience. Got to cook an egg in the hot spring and have some of the bread cooked already with butter so delicious 🤤 we videoed the giser to be fair it was better than the one at giser imho. the family run business is so warm you fall in love with this little place. Definitely worth a trip to start your day of the golden circle

We were staying close by and felt we shouldn't skip this - so glad we didn't! A well laid out path has historical information boards which were of interest to us, maybe not everyone. Some great photos of bed being baked etc. The geological explanations were also interesting, how an earthquake changed the areas springs. We didnt have time to boil an egg or try the cafe but we did hang around for the reliable geyser, every 20 mins or thereabouts and was an excellent surprise! Made us jump and was more impressive than the one we saw at the Geyser park (maybe unlucky there). Not a beautiful place but definitely intriguing.

It was interesting to see but, sadly, at the time we went the pools had dried up due to a recent earthquake and I believe also a disturbance of the water table. The area is very nice however with lots of fumaroles and a great public pool.

I mean, this is ok, but compared to everything else I have seen on iceland, definitely ok if you miss this, especially if you go to Geysir.

Reviews are very mixed on this but I enjoyed it for a modest entrance fee! The egg boiling & mud foothbaths are great gimmicks to maintain interest in the site after the earthquakes of 2008 caused the hot spring pools to dry up. Also, the Geysir is artificial & is actually a borehole to maintain tourist interest. I think the site remains interesting though as you get the chance to look at empty hot spring pools. If you have already visited Geysir before here, you already know what full pools look like. My egg was over cooked because I spent too much time looking at the information boards lol. Still tasted nice with the lava bread though. Didn’t have time to take a foot mud bath, as the site was closing soon for the day otherwise I would have done!
