you have to be patient for the Geysir to 'explode' every few minutes, but it is a sight worth waiting for. Added to this, the visitor centre is very interesting and offers a good amount of information and history tracking volcanic eruptions and the different geysirs over many years. Definitely worth a visit as part of the Golden Circle Tour, a long way to go just for this one attraction otherwise.

Had a fab quick visit to Strokkur as part of a half day Golden Circle tour. It's a magnificent natural phenomenon and were treated to a few 'eruptions' in the space of a few minutes which was excellent. Not only were the geysers impressive, but the scenery surrounding Geysir is simply stunning. The temperature was around the 0 degree mark and the wind had picked up so it was bitingly cold, but it was worth the wander around the hot springs. As well as this, the facilities are pretty good - including a nice gift shop which was an added bonus on our short visit. I wouldn't stay there for hours, but it's well worth a visit as part of the Golden Circle tour

Please be patient there. The Geysir is active once in 8 minutes or so, so you should wait a bit before you can see the boiled water in the air. But it's WOW!

A visit to Iceland's Haukadalsegur Geysir is about like visiting Old Faithful in Yosemite National Park in the U.S.--fun to see and interesting to speculate about all the underground activity that is taking place below your feet to make it all happen. The geysir (pronounced "geezer" in Iceland and Europe) blows its top a little more frequently than Old Faithful, but not as regularly, so you have to watch for telltale signs of the eruption if you want to get the best photos (like watching for the ripples in the geysir pool, and the sudden drop in the water level before everything spews to the sky.) Even though the water is boiling, take a jacket with you on the tour of the Golden Circle. Even in August, the winds were howling and the air was chilly out in exposed areas.

A beautiful geysir that bursts into action every few minutes. Seen as part of The Golden Circle tour. Highly recommended.
