Share your experience - Rate Gunnuhver Hot Springs, Reykjavik

  • Gunnuhver Hot Springs is a site to visit. I found it much more interesting then Geysir. The vents here are continuously blowing steam and some hot water. The landscape is spectacular and if you visit you do not have to contend with hordes of tourists!

  • A must see! It's minutes away from the airport and I stopped on my way to return my rental car. It was so worth it. The steam vents are impressive, the apocalyptic looking sulfur covered landscape just leaves you speechless.

  • I like this place better than geyser in the Golden Circle, the hot springs here is more powerful and active than Geyser. The smoke it produces is so strong and when it blends with the dark clouds, it feels like end of the world. The road not paved but its condition is very easy to drive comparatively, only the last part a bit bumpy. You can access through the road to the lighthouse too.

  • I love the thick steam produced by these springs, shrouding the walkways and the people walking upon them. It's a scenic spot and it really encapsulates what gives the Reykjanes Peninsula its name.

  • Wonderful geothermal vent. You can be totally immersed in the vapour cloud, feel the warm rain spray on you and watch the water boil and jet outside the earth.
