I have seen geothermal areas in New Zealand and Yellow Stone Park in the States, this is not comparable. Having said that, for those who have not seen a geyser eruption, this should be a 5 star spot which should not be missed. There are multiple steam vents and boiling water outlets which are interesting. The parking is easy and free with facilities at the immediate vicinity. Little walking is required. Strokkurr erupts regularly with a relatively big one in about every 10 minutes. I have seen four bigger eruptions which are around 10 metres high. Good enough.

This is a huge field with geothermal activity. Strokkur is most active fountain type geysir on this field, which erupt every 10 minutes. Must see location.

The first three waves will not erupt. After the fourth the geysir erupts. Mostly 10+meters. Be aware of the direction of the wind!

This will take you as long as you want it to. We were there about 30 minutes and witnessed 3 eruptions, one of which was enormous. Park at the centre and cross the road. It’s not very well signposted from parking but the trail is wide and wheelchair and buggy friendly. We’d give the geyser 5 stars but the centre didn’t offer us what we wanted in terms of refreshments. There was nothing in a packet we could eat as we adventured so beware of this and make sure you pack granola bars and fruit in your bag before you leave home (both readily available in supermarkets).

We visited in March. It was great to walk between all the different geysirs and watch them erupt. There is parking (short walk away) and toilets close by with a lovely cafe. We got some hot drinks after and they were incredible. Great stop.

Wonderful experience, once in a lifetime sight. A short 5 minute walk from the car park so good for people with limited mobility. We had a lovely meal in the visitor center cafe too. Highly recommend

Impressive iconic natural wonder of Iceland. They shoot up every 5 or so minutes - Strokkur is the largest/most impressive.

Relatively short stop on the Golden Circle. Quite a spectacle to see it erupt every 5 minutes or so, but once you've seen it, there's nothing else to do. Very treacherous in places and a number of people fell in the short time we were there, so crampons for your shoes are definitely advised if you have them. A shop, cafe and toilets are across the road so it makes a good stop if you're heading that way. Parking was also free, so it's an inexpensive attraction.

This was so cool. I’ve never seen this before. The gieser goes off every 3 to 5 minutes. Check out the photos.

There is a gift shop and restrooms.

Unfortunately the geysers are not as active as they used to be in the past. It is still worth stopping by but not too much to do in the area.
