  • Once you get here you will find out that there are several "geysers" here and that the most active one nowadays is named Strokkur - right next door to the "famous" Geysir that gave name to this type.....  more

  • This is the big one among a field of bubbling springs. It goes off reliably every 5-10 minutes. It doesn’t go to mind blowing heights, but it’s worth seeing. It’s an easy stroll up to it.

  • What can I say? Strokkur is pretty unique, and kind of a must see. However, that goes for a lot of things in Iceland. You're quickly done, and the site is packed with tourists. It's pretty far down the list of awesome memories from Iceland.
  • If you haven't seen a geyser before, you'll find this to be interesting. We enjoyed seeing it but we wouldn't take the time to stop at again.
  • Stunning! We got there at 8am and had it to ourselves. We watched for an hour and saw nine eruptions. Some are in very quick succession, twice it did a double explosion!
  • Must see attraction. Not because it's crazy big but just because it's another wonderful stop in the Golden Circle. The mist rolling across the land is very pretty. You won't have to wait long for the next eruption. It's like every 10 minutes. Take a walk up to the cliffs for a great view. Added bonus.... the Geyser Restaurant is right across the street and their food is incredible!
  • Think of this as old faithfuls younger brother. Very cool to see, not as large but erupts a lot more than Old Faithful. Watch at the base of the guider just before it blows. It creates a very cool looking bubble of water.
