I stopped here briefly since I was in the area. The informational area was closed but I was able to walk around and get pictures of the steaming water. It's fascinating how hot the water is. There is a stand that sells fresh tomatoes on the honor system. I would have bought some but (If I remember right) it said... More

It's fascinating to see Mother Nature in the raw, bubbling and shooting water out of the lava rock like a living, steaming, breathing thing (which it is). The water is literally hot enough to boil an egg!

The springs are so hot that your glasses fog up when you get close to the water. Most powerful hot spring in Europe in terms of volume of water produced. Provides heat and electricity for nearby villages. This is a nice quick stop just to see these hot springs.

Many travel books are quoted saying this is the "largest hot spring in Europe." By largest, they mean produces the largest volume, but by size it is tiny and unimpressive. We drove out of our way to stop here and it almost seemed like someone was playing a joke on us. There was just 50feet of rock with hot springs.... More

If you're anywhere in the Borganes area, stop here. Plans are underway to upgrade the display while improving the heating connections to the village. Not only are there bubbling springs, but also a view down the (steaming) valley.

Stopped here briefly on a tour through Bus Travel Iceland and thought it was pretty cool, er, HOT!! You can get very close to the hot springs here. Be prepared to get fogged up glasses. I think it quite neat to see how green much of the area directly around the hot springs was compared to the brown mosses/grasses were... More

we drove half an hour especially to visit the spring and we are glad we did ! A really cute fluffy sheepdog greeted us and rolled over for a belly rub. The spring itself is rather impressive if you can get over the sulphur smell. And hilarity ensues if you wear glasses !! Overall a fun way to spend half... More

Feel bad saying that as nature is amazing and this spring is really cool to look at. It's only a little River running round the spring that sources it, but it is boiling water so it's fun to spend a few minutes having a look. Nothing else around it so it's worth a stop and then move on.

We stopped by on the way to the glacier and that was more than enough. Facts are impressive but not much to see.

We visited here on the way to the Hraunfossar (lava falls) and Barnafoss waterfalls as we drove from Rejkavik. Its well worth a visit, its not very big but seeing the volume of water and feeling the force of the water is pretty impressive. We visited both places very easily on a day trip in our hired car and the... More
