I think the park is called the Geysir geothermal park. The Geysir geyser itself no longer spouts. It has been blocked by natural causes. However, Strokkur geyser is very active and erupts every 5 - 8 minutes. You can get quite close to it, and it is amazing to watch the bubbling pool of water. The hot water pulses in... More

This is basically a series of geysers with a bunch of touristy shops/restaurants next to it. The geyser is pretty cool though. It erupts every couple minutes and makes everything smell like rotten eggs haha! The other little boiling pools were actually more interesting. They were REALLY boiling/splashing. This is the 2nd stop on Iceland's "Golden Triangle", so its very... More

A great place to stop and explore. The Geysir erupts every 3 minutes or so and there are other non erupting ones to explore in the park. I would advise to go early or late as the crowds from tour buses can be overwhelming!

Strokkur spouts every 8-10 minutes and is surprisingly violent in doing so! Once you've watched a couple you can learn to predict it for he photographs. Well worth seeing as one of the few sites in the world you can see it. Other geysers are around but don't spout.

Despite the main event being the big guy that erupts every 10 mins or so, the whole area is worth an hour or so to wander round and enjoy all the springs and pools. There is a cafe / restaurant over the main road, which is expensive but good to warm you up. The attraction is crowded as it's a... More

Strokkur is such a cool sight to witness. The geysir erupts every 10 minutes or so (although it can happen more often), and is a thrill every single time. Definitely crowded, but lots of parking and easily accessible.

The Geysir erupts every 5 minutes , so you can wait to photograph. If you can't do it on the first time wait another five minutes. Really amazing

In our opinion probably the best sight of the most popular ones in (South) Iceland. The phenomenon is impressive and totally unique and worth a visit. Also the surrounding field was cool (or hot ;)). Great facilities at the site as well. Lots of tourists even in March.

So I've seen geysers on tv and videos, but seeing one in real life was the best. Our earth is just full of such amazing things. Go see Strokkur. But don't touch any of geyser water...it's hot!!
