The geyser is worth visiting despite the cold. If, like us, you visit in winter be careful on the ice which surrounds the geyser. One of our group fell and broke an arm. The restaurant and shop opposite have an exhibition worth visiting.

You won't miss it if you travel to Golden Circle and you should not miss it. An interesting experience seeing the geyser erupting every 5-10 minutes. I have never seen geyser thus this is very new to me. It was huge and I was stunned seeing the geyser erupted.

This really is nature at its best. There's nothing quite like seeing a water spontaneously boil and burst over 50 feet into the air. There's also lots of other geysirs in the vicinity (like litli geysir, for example).

On our trip around the Golden Circle, one of the main stops are the geysers at Geysir. It's a great stop along the way, and one you can't miss. Yu ca see the steam rising when youa re far off. The main geyser, Strokkur goes off every few minutes. Find a guidebook and there are a few other things you... More

Great fun to watch the geysers and pot holes of boiling water. Watch your step, though. Can be slippery. Gift shop and restaurant nearby.

Next to the more famous original Geysir, which no longer erupts; the Strokkur goes off every 5-10 minutes with sometimes smaller, sometimes larger water spouts. Pay attention to the prevailing wind and don't get caught in the hot spray. Can be frustrating to get pictures if too many people pack around it. You actually get within about 20 feet. Also,...

Great visit stop going to Gullfoss. Many different warm water ponds and the geysir Strokkur itself. It errupts very often.

It's very exciting to see not only the burst itself, but mostly the moment right before the burst.. The water starts agitating, it's boiling slowly, then is forms a tiny bubble which grows into a balloon and then bursts... and all these stages within a second! If it weren't the continuous shots of the camera, we couldn't see all these... More

Never seen anything like this before - it is a fantastic sight to see. Definitely worth a trip (we went as part of the golden circle tour). We ate in the restaurant (main) across from geysirs for lunch. It was very good (lamb soup) but it's pretty pricey.
