Go and see this geysir, it erupts so frequently you don't have long to wait for it to go and often there are two eruptions back to back. Amazing!

We hired a car and self drove the golden circle, Strokkur was the second stop of the route and very easy to find as there is a large visitor centre / restaurant/ gift shop with free parking. As you would expect everything is very expensive here and we took a packed lunch to save a little money. Strokkur is free... More

Strokkur is a fascinating natural wonder as you are walking around the geysirs and watch the eruptions. There are two downsides of this activity. First the rotten egg smell, second tourists locking their cameras to one point and waiting for the eruptions to catch the moment. Vloggers, snappers, instagrammers surround the geysirs and stand there motionless for minutes so you... More

The whole Geysir area is really a must see when in Iceland. Unfortunatelly the biggest Geysir, which gave the name to all the others and could get about 80m high, is not that active anymore. The Strokkur however is very reliable: You just have to stand there with your camera and wait some minutes, and you'll surely see a fascinating... More

The site is hyper-touristy with a big expensive restaurant and gift shop, nevertheless the most impressive geyser you will see in Iceland now that Geysir itself no longer erupts. Well worth the visit.

We stopped by Geysir centre for lunch and to view the geyser eruption and wow! It was quite impressive. Therapeutic to watch somehow! There are a few geothermal pools but only Strokkur is the active ones that keeps erupting every few minutes. Be careful if the wind blows, your camera will get wet if you are in its direction. 2...

This geyser is directly adjacent to the original geyser (called GEYSIR). For many years, guides and tourists would throw rocks into Geysir to make it erupt. Unfortunately, this has blocked it and it no longer erupts. Right next to it is Strokkur which erupts every 8-10 minutes, sometimes quite dramatically. Be careful if you dare to stand downwind...you may get... More

It was our first time seeing a geyser and this one erupts around every 8 minutes while we were there! Amazing experience.

We'd never visited anywhere like this before, so seeing the steaming streams and bubbling pools, witnessing several huge eruptions of the geyser in this other-worldly area, was an enjoyable and worthwhile experience. The whole area was clouded in steam and smelt of sulphur. There were lots of people here, very crowded and touristy, obviously, but we could still get close... More

The biggest geyser i´ve seen in my life. Very impressive. It takes around 7 minutes to explode. There is a geysir center very close with gift shops and restaurant so you can spend quite a time there.
