Another great tourist stop from our adventures in Iceland. Strokkur is the main attraction in this particular area, and erupts every few minutes... if you are lucky enough, you may even see it erupt two (or more) times in a row. There is a nice...More

Pun intended. Great geological phenomenon to witness. The eruptions happen pretty frequently. They're not all stunning, but if you wait, I'm sure one will blow your mind (not literally). Great for families as it is minimal walking trail/distance from the parking lot and information centre....More

Strokkur was truly a sight to see! It goes off every 8 to 10 minutes but make sure you're standing upwind as some tourists got drenched and almost ruined their cameras! Depending on the pressure there is a chance that it will look smaller than...More

Did this as part of the golden circle tour and we were not disappointed. It will take your breath away. Check the wind direction or you are in danger of getting drenched. Large gift shop and public toilets. Loads of free parking and well signed...More

It was really cool watching a geysir come out. It sometimes take 10 mins for the water to come out, sometimes less than that. Only one of the geysir is active. The other ones don't cause they are too small. This place was far to...More

It is worth your time to make a short stop to see this hot thermal area which includes eruptions by Strokkur on a regular schedule and other thermal pools in this area, The Great Geysir is here also and is currently not active. While Strokkur...More

Unfortunately we didn't think it was that amazing. It was a bit too cold, too windy, the place looks a bit ugly, the geyser did its thing, and it's magical and everything, bit that was all. I wouldn't get out of my route to go...More

Concur with the other answers here. It's just there. No entrance fee, no parking charge, always free access. But there is a shop and café and a hotel.
We are coming to Iceland this week- first week of Jan- what is the best time of day to see the Geysir?

Hi onesixtieth, kinda nice to have someone ask a question that's only about 250 miles away (I live in Appleton, WI, a half hour south of Green Bay). As a professional photographer, I think the middle of the day is probably... More

I would try to get there with the sun rise in winter. If you are traveling from Reykjavík, start with Geyser, Gullfoss and then back to the national park. Most buses come at 11:30 - 13:00. But there are day tours, evening... More
