This was probably my favorite spot on the Golden Circle trip (which was hard to choose as they all were great). It's just a cool life experience to see the geyser from which the word came, and then see another explode over and over. I'd even say the sulfur smell added to it -- that's what geothermal vents and geysers... More

Lots of smaller geysers in this park area which are lovely to see on the walk up to the main geysir. It's wonderful to see this erupt every 10 minutes or so, so if you miss it once, you have the chance to get to the front of the crowds and see it again. Mind the wind if it's blowing... More

Loved this experience, felt a bit rushed by the tour, but this was a fantastic experience, my 12 year old loved it, and you only have to wait a few minutes to see the action.

You definitely have to stop here, but you've been warned - it's a hot stop for the tour buses and it's a little much.

I went on The Golden Circle Tour with Iceland Horizon and visited the geothermal park where we specially went right away to see the Strokkur. Many people are crowding at the prime location to witness the eruption of the Strokkur. My family and I managed to catch a spot where we can see the formation before the eruption. We were... More

This is certainly a must see attraction when you visit Iceland. As many have mentioned there is free parking here but it is VERY busy. I went there in March, on a cold, snowy midweek day and it was very touristy. Now I know this is inevitable and that by being there myself, I make that worse. However I think... More

There is free parking and restrooms available in the giftshop. Right across the street you will see signs and crowds and you FOLLOW THEM. In the beginning you will see a mini geyser and as you walk towards the end you the strokkur that everyone is taking pictures of. When we went that day, we came jus in time for... More

Good to see get used to sulphur smell. Keep that camera rolling cause these geysers shoot up every 8-10 mins. Worth the wait

I think the park is called the Geysir geothermal park. The Geysir geyser itself no longer spouts. It has been blocked by natural causes. However, Strokkur geyser is very active and erupts every 5 - 8 minutes. You can get quite close to it, and it is amazing to watch the bubbling pool of water. The hot water pulses in... More

This is basically a series of geysers with a bunch of touristy shops/restaurants next to it. The geyser is pretty cool though. It erupts every couple minutes and makes everything smell like rotten eggs haha! The other little boiling pools were actually more interesting. They were REALLY boiling/splashing. This is the 2nd stop on Iceland's "Golden Triangle", so its very... More
