All reviews few minutes golden circle great geysir old faithful across the road gift shop hot water geothermal area natural phenomenon be patient active geyser bubbling pools the main attraction fun to watch main geyser geyser erupt mother nature
While often very crowded with a ton of tour buses and tourists the whole geothermal area is quite large and there is plenty of space to view the active Geysir. We had a rental car and were able to find parking quickly, use the bathrooms...More
Nature at it's best! You don't have to wait long (5-10 minutes) to see this burst into life! Mesmerising and well worth the trip! If you visit at sunrise (around 11am in winter) you will truly see why this is the land of ice and...More
We visited here during our recent vacation to Iceland and were in awe of the whole geothermal area around Geysir. It was so cool to see the rising steam across the hot springs and to wait for Strokkur to erupt. It may go as high...More
This is a natural activity which is worth seeing, probable especially with children. One must be aware, hiking clothes and sturdy shoes are a must. We were there in July and I was wearing a down vest and a Goretex jacket, hat and gloves. Unfortunately...More
Be sure to have crampons like Stablicers or similar if visiting in the winter. It was quite slippery. We didn't have to wait long to see the geyser erupt. Nearby you can get a hot drink or snack, and there are public restrooms as well.
The hot springs and Stokkur have to be seen. Situated next to the Geysir (which rarely erupts)Stokkur erupts every few minutes. Definitely worth seeing. The best part is that it is free. There is even free parking nearby with a café, toilets and shop nearby.
Hi All, Four of us in our late 20's to mid 30's are considering a self drive trip to Iceland during last two week of August this year. I know this is really last minute and we may not get accommodation. So, would really appreciate your advise on the itinerary below, especially on places to stay and whether we are cramming too much into a day. 3 of us can drive and would be sharing driving duties, so we are willing to stretch the driving time during some of the days. We are mainly...More

No one can advise on places to stay since we do not know what is sold out already, That is research that you need to do on your own and ASAP.

I think day 5 is too much? From Hofn to Reykjahlíð is quite a distance without adding all the sights in. Day 7 from Akureyri to Deildartunguhver needs approx 4 hours alone.. I am going in October and am planning a night at Vallanes/Egilsstaðir between Höfn and Myvatn.

Considering the limitations on availability you have a pretty standard itinerary booked. Just book those last couple of nights as you can find things and the attractions will come pretty easily based on your routes
