One of Iceland's interesting geothermal phenomenon are its geysers, with Strokkur being probably the most famous and the coolest, not to mention the one after which the word geyser comes. One of several geysers in Geysir, Iceland, Stroker is the largest. It erupts approximately every 10 minutes, and with each eruption several smaller or larger ones occur immediately after. In...

Stokkur is the highlight of the large hillside of bubbling pools and steaming vents that make up the site at Geysir. The area is a symbol of Iceland really, where in most places the hot water still smells of sulphur because it comes directly from underground. My expectations of Geysir were high, and they weren't disapppointed. It's Strokkur that makes... More

This is a very active geyser. In the 25-30 minutes I was here, I caught 2 small 20ft eruptions and 4 larger 40-60 ft eruptions. Make sure you walk up the hill about 1/2 of the way, there are 2 cool (hot) pools worth viewing.

The strokkur geysir erupted every 5-10 minutes while web were there. It was the only geysir there to erupt on our visit. Definitely a fun sight to see.

Watching mother nature at her finest is always an incredible thing. The beauty and sheer force in which the Geysir blows is fascinating to watch.

Another "must do" in Iceland. The ride out is pretty, but the geysers are a far cry from Yellowstone's. Still, they are geologically instructive and one must take what they can get on rarities like this.

Every 10 minutes, sometimes less, you get to see this awesome geyser erupt. Very impressive site and even more impressive sound.

Always great to see Mother Nature at work. You definitely can not set your clock by her. Guides from Geoiceland really explained the workings of the geyser ( from the Icelandic word geysir ). Nice to see on the golden circle trip

This is a great stop along the Golden Circle. The geysir goes off every 5-10 minutes but every time it is different. We were there for 1 hour watching it and some were huge and some were tiny. A great stop for all ages.
