A stop on our Golden Circle Tour, we walked by bubbling hot water (warned not to touch, would scald you) to the geyser itself. The main geyser, was dormant for 50-years, then erupted in 2,000, but only for two months! But it has a "little...More

I've seen videos of geysers before but standing in front of Strokkur watching it erupt was just amazing! The walk up from the carpark was just a few minutes but was beautiful, the hot springs gently bubbling alongside the path was just lovely. A particular...More

While the main geysir at Geysir doesn't go off almost at all, this one does every few minutes. The surrounding multicolored pools of boiling water and steam that smells like sulfur make you feel like you are not on earth, but another planet. Definitely stop...More

A must see when visiting Iceland, Strokkur geyser, on the banks of the Hvita river, erupts frequently and reliably every 5-10 minutes spewing, spurting and spitting water and steam around 20 metres or more into the air. Visitors are transfixed watching the bubbling pool awaiting...More

This is a fun stop, unfortunately we never saw Geysir go off but saw Strokkur go off multiple times. Strokkur goes off pretty regularly so it’s fun to get pictures and walk around the area. Some areas are roped off but it’s still possible to...More

The geyser area in Haukadalsvegur is honestly not very impressive... Mostly setup as a tourist trap then around the natural beauty in contrast to most of the other things to see in Iceland. I wouldn't waste my time visiting it unless you were passing by...

Although not as impressive as it’s next door neighbour, Geysir, Strokkur blows a little more regularly and is worth a visit to see a true natural phenomenon.

We stopped here on our Golden Circle tour and stayed for an hour. The area is really cool with lots of geothermal vents and springs in addition to the larger geysers. Strokkur erupts every 6-8 minutes so you're guaranteed to see it go off. It...More

Stop off here for a quick visit on a tour of the island. The geyser erupts every 7-10 min and half the fun is trying to catch it on camera (photo or video). The cafe is a bit mixed in terms of quality and service

Amazing experience and a must see during your Golden circle tours and visit to Iceland! Strokkur is the active baby brother of Geysir that is inactive. Geysir is the name of the area and sightseeing and is just 2 min. walk away from active Strokkur....More

Hi, Strokkur is the geysir. It's also close to Gullfoss Falls (10-15 min drive). We stayed at the geysir hotel which is right across the road. Hope that helps!
