My fiancé and I had a wonderful time checking out the hot springs, having a coffee up at the restaurant at the top of the hill, and receiving a surprise visit from the adorable (and very fluffy) dog from the farm nearby.

This is another vast area of geothermal activity. The smoke can be seen from faraway. There are Trex walkways to allow access. The black sand around the fissures are very hot. Someone is placing loaves of uncooked bread and covering it with the black sand....More

We did not do anything here, just walked around and enjoyed seeing the steam and hot boiling water coming out of the ground at the plant. There was a spa next to it but we did not try it out.

You can get up close to this hot spring. But it is not as spectacular as others in Iceland. There is a "spa" close to the spring.

If you are near, nice to see. Close to Barnafoss and Hraunfossar. Fr thermal water better to go the Helsafell public swimming pool

Area is tiny, many man made barriers so it is difficult to take the picture. Don't change your route to see this place. Visit just if you are very close and have plenty of free time. Free parking. Time to spend 2 min

Yes, its a hot spring, well. If you have enough time, enjoy it. We made a short stop approx. 15 min. that's enough time. There is a swimming area above the spring, but be prepared they want see bucks.

One of several obvious geothermal areas in Iceland. Worth a quick stop. Impressive boiling water to view right by the parking area.
