Gunnuhver Hot Springs, Reykjavik Reviews

  • One of our first stops in Iceland, and an interesting one! Sulphur smell not terrible, but never pleasant or avoidable. Not as interesting or expansive as Hverir, but also totally different surrounding landscape

  • Another sight of a great force of nature, the plumes made by the hot springs are massive and make you feel incredibly small on our planet. The wooden walkways are very well made and survive the freezing temperatures mixed with a constant cloud of steam being made, we didn't find any parts slippy when taking care in our steps. There is a small drive to get to the car park that is single track most of the way, however, the car park is large and the information for you to read is informative. Recommend a visit if you're travelling to the Bridge America-Europe or wanting to kill time before going to the Blue Lagoon.

  • Close to the airport. It was a nice drive and visit. Free!

  • Gunnuhver – or Gunna hot spring. The hot spring got its name from one troublesome ghost, Gunna. Just before dying the woman Gunna had a fight with the local sheriff, Wilhelm whom she hated. When she died, their dispute had not been solved. Still, Wilhelm attended her funeral. Suspiciously the next day he was found dead; his body bruised and blue, his bones broken. His remains were taken to the Útskálar church where the priest, Gísli, had to fight Gunna the ghost throughout the night as she was determined to drag the sheriff to Hell. Gunna the ghost did not succeed and went absolutely bonkers. Wilhelm‘s widow suddenly died an unexplainable death, people traveling the peninsula got lost, died or went mad. Everyone knew Gunna was to blame. She refused to stay dead – and was quite visible. Life on the Reykjanes peninsula became unbearable. Finally, two farmers, with some spiritual knowledge, decided to get the priest at Vogósar, Erik, to bust the ghost. Knowing Eric would be reluctant, they decided to bribe him with quite a potent poteen – which he was known to like a tad too much. After listening to their plight, the priest gave the farmers a rope with a knot on one end. He told them to give the unknotted end to Gunna; the knotted end would trundle and drag her to a place where she would get stuck forever. The farmers did as they were told and the last sighting they heard of Gunna the ghost was when she plunged into the hot spring. They declared her dead, the peninsula became safe from her misconducts and gave the hot spring her name so everyone would know where Gunna met her final fate.

  • Most powerful hot spring a.k.a. cloud generator I saw in Iceland! Bring a rain coat and be ready for a wet, sulphuric car afterwards.
