Worth the short detour from the main road. You´ll see unique landscapes and the Strokkur is the proof that the icelandic underground alive and kicking. It´s understandable, but no drones allowed.

It's always impressive to see a geyser erupt and this one does so every 2 minutes. The spray travels at least four stories high. Hint: the water forms a dome just before it erupts sky-high. Other geysers and bubbling mud pots are here. Across the...More

If you are only to visite one place in Iceland this is it. The landscape is intriguing and the experience immense. To see how the geysir erupts every 4-5 minutes sending hot water high into the air is really worth the trip.

Amazing and very impressive to see a real geyser. Be prepared to get wet as sometimes when you less expected the eruption happens. We saw him at least 4 times in 30 minutes. Located close to the road and accessible to people of all ages....More

The geyser erupts reliably several times per hour. The eruption is more like a burp than a sustained flow. If you are taking a photo, be prepared to snap quickly. The hot springs adjacent enhance to geologic experience.

Strokkur and Geysir are 2 geysers in the same area... they are 3 minutes away by foot one from another. Strokkur is the active one. Geysir unfortunately is not active.

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
