This is a must see if you are in Iceland! How often can you say you saw a geyser go off? I don't usually say that something is a "must do" but this I will. To see the steaming water all around, to experience such...More

I've seen Old Faithful and yes that is nice but this one is as amazing if not more amazing. It goes up really high and more often. When we got there we just saw one geyser go down and thought we had to wait a...More

Yes that’s how they spell it. Some say you’ll be disappointed if you’ve seen old faithful. We weren’t. It helped us more thoroughly understand how unique Iceland is. Walk is easy. Crowds: well it depends on where you’ve been and your perspective. We never felt...More

On the day we were there in early July it was cold, drizzly and overcast. Parking at the Center facility was rough but we later saw that there is a lesser used parking lot adjacent to the actual geyser's. The geyser area is very unique...More

Be prepared for this to be crowded. Find a quieter spot higher up; you still get the spectacle! Driving? Be patient for a spot

This was my first live experience with a geyser and it did not disappoint. The geyser "spewed" every 3 to 5 minutes so there was no long wait.

Although very touristical it's nice. We went early, as advised by a friend, and missed all the bus-fun. Imagine 100's of tourists in winterjackets (middle of june). Snap-shotting away. Leave before it's too busy. Overall: nice to see.

Stelfoss Geyser doesn’t have the heft or height of Old Faithful, but you won’t have to hang around waiting and you aren’t going to miss it. It went up four times while we were there. Mind, we are intriguing by natural history and were photographing...More

Not only a genuine Place of Interest, there's much to learn and a show is guaranteed every ten minutes or so. We go to geysers to see them cascade hot water up into the air (and take pictures). Can't go wrong here!

Vegetarian food was somewhat difficult to come by during our recent trip to Iceland. In the gift shop and cafeteria at Geysir, there is a cafe that offers vegan and vegetarian soups. The soups were high quality and a delightful pick-me-up on a chilly summer...More
