The earth blowing off stream every 4 to 5 minutes flexing it's muscles letting us know that mother nature is in charge waiting to unleash it's fury! Fascinating to see and experience. There is also a huge souvenir shopping complex and a restaurant at the...More

The Geysir is very neat to see bubble and rupture. We stayed here almost an hours fascinated with the geothermal activity it was producing. The children had a new concept on how these geysirs function.

We liked this place. The geysir was different. Go early at sunrise for some amazing pictures. That added to our experience!

Good to see this geothermal area, but, perhaps a notice could be put up to let people know that there is no set time when Geysir may spout. Strokkur on the other hand goes off every 4-8 minutes. There are a few bubbling pools and...More

If you've never seen a geyser this is a must see. Its part of the Golden Circle and easy to get to. Lots of day trippers and its pretty touristy with a bunch of tourist shops and services across the street. But, that goes with...More

Known as the little brother (or sister) of the non active Geysir geyser, but certainly worth a visit! Strokkur geyser is very active, every 5 to 10 minutes! Very easy to reach, you can really walk around the geyser, with a 360° view as result.

This stop was part of the golden circle tour I took. Strokkur is the main geyser in this spot, however, there are other gurgling geysers as well. It was an interesting spot. Strokkur erupts every few minutes, Only thing i had was that, i thought...More

The geysers were the main attraction at this spot. It is pretty amazing to see the routine eruptions that occur every 10-15 minutes or so. The area is very tourist friendly as there is a sizable visitor center across the street. It encompasses a few...More

It's easily reached by rental car and entrance is free. There was no traffic in late June and many parking available at around 3:30. Can't believe some people pay expensive bus tours to come here. It's impressive and a rare sight.

There is no gate to close, it's an open park area so you can go 24/7, however there are also no lights either, so your best option is to go during daylight or sunset. Once it's dark it can be a little dangerous as the park... More
