  • A striking spot which is full of small and large heat-warmers, the water is very hot and the area full of vapours from the temperature difference.

  • Gajzer hot water explodes every few minutes, sometimes on a larger, sometimes slightly smaller height. Around the main source there are several other meshes with boiling water. A place very popular among tourists so always very much "photographers" around. Surely everyone who visits Iceland has to be:)

  • Cool place. Someone said that the downside is nearby restaurant but that was actually so much appreciated in cold weather. Enjoyed the geysers and enjoyed the hot soup after.
  • We were there mid September and it wasn't crowded at all. The geyser erupts regularly and it's really impressive! You'll have to accept te scent but the visit is totally worth it.
