I guess that when in Iceland then you have to see this.. Yep, it bubbles and spurts and really good to see, but once or twice is more than enough.

Nice site to see while in Iceland. Its an easy drive from Reykjavik through country side and there are several other sites to see while up there (Golden Circle Tour). The Geyser erupts every couple of minutes like clock work, you don't have to spend much time here. Can be crowded at times, a lot of tours stop at this... More

Fantastic sight to see did not disappoint. felt rushed as day light is limited at this time of year but glad we did do it. Make sure you have sturdy foot wear as the area becomes very slippery when frozen. The attraction should be spot lighted at this time of year so that you spend more time here.

Part of the golden circle tour, this Geyser site is beautiful. Watch the main Geyser erupt every 10 minutes whilst you walk the path of the Geysirs. You must drive the golden circle tour, not get a coach, the coach gives you restricted time and you arrive with all the other tours and it gets very busy very quickly. If... More
