This was one of our stops on a day of touring. Glad we did. You can get very close the the geysers, and they go off approximately every eight minutes. You can walk around and see some smaller ones as well as a lot off...More

Iceland has a lot of thermal activity. The geysers are different than what you would see in Yellowstone Park, for example. Yellowstone has geysers that go much higher than in Iceland. On the otherhand, the Geysers in Krysuvik go off much more often. So if...More

We went in November, which means everything was covered in snow. We didn’t get to see the colours that are apparently one of the best parts of the area. However, aside from two other people we were entirely alone, which was pretty cool.

The Krysuvik area has some great scenery. It is worth the drive through. The Geothurmal area is a mixture of browns, pinks, and silvers. It's a nice area to stop and stretch your legs as you walk the path. There are also a big lake...More

Nice walking area, very colourful, cool to take pictures ! Easy access, this geothermal place will allow you to discover some geysers and hot springs in family, phenomena always surprising. Not a place for specialists !

This spot is interesting but it is a little bit out of the way. I will not say it is worth the visit as I've been to similar places. If you have now, then please use this opportunity to see it.

Interesting stop at this geothermic area. Sulfur smell fills the air. Pools are gurgling and steam is rising. Neat to walk thru (stay on the walkways/path). Good place for photos. Would recommend a quick visit here to fully understand the geothermal activity that is occurring...More

A more impressive hot spring in the Reykjanes Peninsula. If you are pushed for time I would recommend visiting this area over the hot-spring at Gunnuhver. It is much more interesting and beautiful. Children can have fun learning about the hot spring and jumping over...More

Relatively easy to get to from Reykjavik, these hot springs are fascinating to walk through, though at times the bus loads of tourists can make picture taking a little difficult.
