You could see it bubbling on the surface. You can get really close to it. The initial eruption made me jump! Saw 3 eruptions each getting progressively smaller. Our tour guide said that it happens every 5-10mins. This place is very busy. The drivers are...More

This was the first stop on our TUI tour of Iceland’s Golden Circle. We were informed by our guide that the Geysir shoots up every 7-8 minutes but we generally didn’t have to wait that long and in the space of half an hour we...More

We visited in early April. It was still pretty busy. There is a large parking lot adjacent to the the entrance. Strokkur displays a cool feature - the surface of the pool forms a blue bubble just before the eruption. You may even get surprised...More

Another quintessential Icelandic experience on the Golden Circle route, it is touristy but still it is beautiful to see the Geysir erupting every seven minutes.

Geysir in general is an interesting place, with a lot of geothermal activity, steamy vents, bubbling mud pools etc. It's the kind of place you're not really sure actually exists naturally! - and so it was very cool to be able to see it in...More

There are some geysers in Strokkur. One of the biggist geyser erupts every ten minutes up to 40m. The area around the geyser is very crowded. If you want to take good pictures, you have to visit as early as possible.

Just as we were walking up, Strokkur erupted. We expected to have to stand for the reported 7-8 minutes, but it erupted again fairly quickly and then again as we were coming out of the restaurant. Great show.

This is the location of the famous Geysir, the hot spring which gave the name to the phenomenon called geyser around the world. It was cool to get some hot air in the cold rainy day.

The fact it’s free makes this place even better. Raw nature and on a cold winters day it’s definitely a case of finer and ice. Park opposite for free and then cross the road to see this geo thermal area. The geysir itself erupts every...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!
