A visit to the Geysir is usually part of the Great Circle tour from Reykjavik. The geyser shoots off about once every 8 minutes (or did while we were there). It is pretty spectacular and on par with similar shows in New Zealand. The area around the geyser is a geothermal area so there are other small springs and bubbling mud pools around. The attached (over the road) cafe and shop is a magnet for tourists having lunch and shopping. Compared to the shop at Gullfoss, this one was more reasonably priced. Lots of peolple from the tourist coaches.
