It's easily reached by rental car and entrance is free. There was no traffic in late June and many parking available at around 3:30. Can't believe some people pay expensive bus tours to come here. It's impressive and a rare sight.

Strokkur is the active geyser in this area at this time. Although it is also the site of Geysir, from which all geysers take their name. Geysir, however, only seems to erupt after an earthquake. Strokkur is reliable; every few minutes …. Maybe not as...More

There are several geysirs, little geyser is good but the big one is spectacular. I didn't go right to the top of the park but friends said I should have done.

If you go to geysir, you'll definitly see strokkur erupt. Every 5 to 10 min you'll der a warm water column of about 30m. Impressive! The entrance is free

Wow! This was my first time seeing a geyser up close and it was amazing. Strokkur is a short walk from the parking lot and it erupts every 5-10 minutes. Just be careful - the wind shifts frequently so if you get close you might...More

Fantastic. This is part of a park with several geysirs, but most of them don't erupt. There are also little streams of water where the water reaches between 80-100C (ie boiling hot). It's difficult to grasp how natural, flowing water can be that hot. It...More

Great photo opportunity. What"s great about it is you only have to wait 5 minutes before it explodes again.

This national park is a true gem. The geyser is spectacular and puts Old Faithful to shame. Of note, the restaurant there offers good eats at an affordable price (by Icelandic standars) so grab a bite before you go to the next place.

Part of the Golden Circle. So fun - from the little Geysir to the giant one. Blue, clear water. You can feel the excitement waiting for the eruptions.

Its definitely worth it even if you need to get in touch with lot of people. Some nice ones but also a lot of reckless, egoistic ones only interested to get the best shot as fast as possible. Most people directly ran to the geysir...More

There is no gate to close, it's an open park area so you can go 24/7, however there are also no lights either, so your best option is to go during daylight or sunset. Once it's dark it can be a little dangerous as the park... More

Hi onesixtieth, kinda nice to have someone ask a question that's only about 250 miles away (I live in Appleton, WI, a half hour south of Green Bay). As a professional photographer, I think the middle of the day is probably... More
