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

As we pulled up there were two sheepdogs hanging out in the parking lot who greeted us when we got out of the car. They were super friendly and followed us up to the actual spring. It was pretty neat to see Europe's most powerful hot spring and it's amazing that this spring heats most of Iceland. While you don't... More

We were here at dusk as part of our return trip from another excursion. One of our guides was wise enough to bring a flashlight, and it made for some neat pictures. I'm sure there is more to see during the daytime, from photos I've seen online, but it was still worth the stop. It was also nice to feel... More

One of the geysers shoots up water within 5 minutes. This is worth the wait. And seriously, don't throw money in the geyser... Funny to see that there are coins lying the geyser. People don't read :p

As others have noted, this is a good stop-off if you are in the area. It was neat to see and read about the spring. There was a dog hanging out in the parking lot that the kids liked playing with after they'd seen enough hot water.

If you are on this route it is good to take a look but it is not so special. It is small. Theay are building a spa next to it so next year it will be more touristic.

The spring is worth a visit if passing and is very easy to find. Only a short stay around 30mins will suffice.

We stopped off here for about 30 mins. It's good to see the geothermal spring. Small area to view, nice to feel the warm heat on a cold day! Glad we dropped by.

Its a spring with bubbling hot water and the smell of sulphur in the air If you've never seen a spring before then this stop is definitely worth it. If you have lots of springs back hom (like me in the Philippines) then you can skip this one

I had never seen so much geothermal activity! This was quite a geothermal spot. Quite active! At times water would jump up. Smoke was everywhere! Nearby this region I could still see smoke rising up. Wow! Deildartunguhver is quite active! It produces 180 liters of water per second! Its temperature: 212 degrees Fahrenheit! What’s neat is that they use this... More
