We visited here on the way to the Blue Lagoon. We also visited the Bridge between the two continents which was close by. Definitely need a car with 4WD as roads quite bumpy. Fantastic site to see all the geo-thermal energy and the hot springs. Well worth a visit!

We visited Grindavik as part of our first trip to Iceland. The Gunnuhver hot spring is outside the town. It's past the Blue Lagoon but, if you want to see geothermal energy in action without making a reservation this is your place. Ample parking. Well groomed and maintained walking paths and viewing decks. The power of the spring is awe... More

This is a off beaten path and 40min from Keflavik Airport. Most tourists didn't know about this place but definitely worth visiting. The hot springs is Iceland´s largest mud pool and steam raising from many places. There are marked paths where you must walk. We spend 30min here and took many pictures with the beautiful surroundings. There is a lighthouse... More

Billowing clouds of sulphorus steam make for a great visit. The ground feels alive and as if it is on fire. These hot springs are other worldly and definitely worth the trip.

This is definitely worth visiting I'd you're nearby. We went around sunset and the colours were gorgeous and we were really taken by it. It had so few people we could really take it in and take silly pictures!

Wouldn't drive 2 hours just to see this but if doing the Gulfoss (waterfall), Geysir (this) and Pingvellir (national park) it is one of the coolest things you can do. Something that wont be forgotten.

I hadn't read about this, we stumbled across it on our last day when we decided to drive out to the Reykjanes peninsula. It's another of Icelands geo thermal areas, just a fantastic place and has a great story to go with the area. The story of Gunnuhver a female ghost who haunts the area.....one which many locals and visitors... More
