A faithful eruptor

Not a huge one but erupts consistently. The surroundings are a beauty and you can view it from pretty up close. The bubbling of the water is a spectacle to see. Loved it!

This is a spectacular site that you must visit when in Iceland on the Golden Circle Route! Expect it to get very busy! It may take a couple of explosions before you get a photo position your happy with. There appears to be a gap of between 5 to 10minutes between explosions so wear gloves if you're holding the camera... More

We had lots of fun watching Strokkur erupt. Everyone says a different time for how often it erupts, when I was there I counted every 3-4 minutes. I think it maybe varies quite a bit. We arrived here at about 12:30pm and it really wasn't all that crowded. There were still some people standing around Strokkur but it was easy... More

An awesome thing to witness in real life, such a surreal experience that's a 'must see' in Iceland. I'd say only Gulfoss was better than Strokker - as we haven't yet seen the Lights...fingers crossed...

Interesting and beautiful sight to see. It erupts every 5-10 minutes and make sure you stay for a few eruptions as the first we saw was only small and didn't give the full experience.

We visited Geysir Hot Springs during our Iceland visit where we witnessed Strokkur erupt twice in less than a half hour. The Geysir Center offered very clean bathrooms and food options. In addition, if you want to pick up some fun gifts to bring home, the shop is well stocked with things we didn't see anywhere else during our journey.

Be sure to watch the geysir erupt at least twice before you start snapping pictures. It is truly amazing. The geysir erupts every 5 or 6 minutes, and is very impressive.

Free to park. The main geyser shoots water 30m high very regularly (normally less than 10 mins, for every few minutes). To find it among the small steam drifts, look for the crowds.

Amazing scenery and quite a unique experience! arrive early as after 10;30, a lot os buses and people arrive. Best is to sleep at the hotel Litli Geysir from which you can see the geyser and you can walk 2mn to be on the spot.
