It’s amazing what the earth has to offer. Although takes about 30-45 minutes to get to from Reykjavik, worth it to see. There are multiple geothermal areas in Iceland and each one is different. While the smell of sulphur assaults the senses, it gives you a sense of the power of the earth. Great for teaching kids about science and the impact on the environment (or a couple of adults who have a sense of wonder).

We enjoyed our stop here…about thirty minutes is all you need and is three smooth miles off the main road…there were several different sounds from different thermals here and plenty of boiling…lots of different collies, definitely worth a stop

Pleasant for a quick stop to have a look at bubbling geothermal pools. There looks like there was a hike to the summit nearby but we didn’t have time to do it. Site had good parking, toilets and was free.

This place is easily accessible by car with free parking and free use of WC. A couple of picnic tables facilitate people who want to picnic over there. It is a nice place to see interesting geothermal features against scenic background. It is of lesser scale comparing to the geyser area in the golden circle but a lot closer to Reykjavík. 20-30 minutes are good enough although you can opt to ascend further for views.

OMG this place stinks. The smell is horrible. Authentic experience to see a hot spring in nature. Long drive for 20 minutes of looking at the steam, but it does stink.

We visited here while on an excursion on the peninsula. It is quite interesting and worth a stop, taking time to stroll through the area. Paths are well maintained and allow for a close up view.

We stopped here early in the morning just after arriving. There were restrooms and a platform to walk on. We saw some geothermal activity later on in the ring road, but these were nice to see, had a contrasting background, and you didn’t get your shoes nearly as dirty. It’s a great quick stop.

Now this is a stunning place you can't miss! The colors of the stone and ground against the bright blue sky and green grass. Best place for some thermal photos! Take your time and explore. We spent around 45minutes here just taking it in.

An interesting geothermal area to visit, especially if you've never been to one. Great colors, and well-maintained paths to walk around. There's a similar - yet different - area near Mývatn lake. If you've spent significant amount of time in Yellowstone, you may not be as impressed, bit it's still worth stopping by, in my opinion. Keep in mind that the steam released from the vents contains sulfuric compounds, so the air in the area has a strong characteristic smell.

if you passing Kleifarvatn Lake, it is of course worth the visit. Otherwise, I would say, there are nicer sites with the same Mars-type scenery
