A nice spot to stop and wander around the Geothermic area. Fun to try and get a photo of the erupting geyser. Good parking and plenty of places available for a lunch stopover.

Nature ever seizes to amaze me. This is one of those times when you cannot believe it to be true. Hot boiling water all over the ground and sulphuric smell in the air. And then all of a sudden the geyser erupts. Amazing and mind...More

Well worth a visit ... very different to the thermal area in the north-east of Iceland - only small, but lovely sapphire pools and all kinds of geothermal excitement. Good fun with all of the crowds, but wonderful when the place is empty - if...More

If you've been to Yellowstone you won't get much different here, including with the number of people. Here we saw the most tourists in all the places we visited. It's cool though and erupts every 5-10 minutes so you can see a lot in a...More

Given that it's on the way to Gulfoss, which is awesome, it's worth the quick stop and easy walk to see. However, if it was just the Geysirs, I would have been bummed.

Come on, this is where the word "geyser" comes from! Consistent spouts every 5 minutes. Watch out for the splash zone (or bring your shampoo and have a shower)!

Strokkur will erupt every 10 minutes or so which gives you plenty of time to set up for a video or some great stills. As one of the big attractions of the golden circle, it does tend to get a bit crowded so anticipate that....More

Parking is plentiful across the street at the restaurant and large gift shop. There is a crosswalk to the geyser area. It does not take a lot of time to view because it ejects its water column every 5 to 10 minutes. There is some...More

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
