I'm a local, so my opinion might be a bit biased. I used to go there and it was pretty quiet but lately it's been difficult to get around due to the amount of people in the area. If you can get past that, the area is absolutely beautiful. There is a lot to see and admire and I highly... More

That is absolutely worth to see. The whole geothermal area is very popular and can get crowded at times. Strokkur is the main attraction and it's worth seeing. Every few minutes the boiling water pumps upwards. Being close by and witness this is wonderful. The smell is way less noticeable than Seltun and Gunnuhver.

The geyser is why you're here--go see it. Seriously, it's a great geyser which erupts every few minutes with varying amounts of power.

This geysir is well worth the trip! If you are taking photos/video, be advised that each spray is different! I took a video of a small explosion, when the next one was HUGE! LOL. Oh well. Definitely abide by the signs and do not touch as this water will burn you. It was pretty impressive to see. There is a... More

The Strokkur geysir is the main attraction here which erupts every few minutes but there are also some mudpools and other geothermal activity and walks. Most people visit on Golden Circle coach tours and it can get very busy, we were lucky and not many people were there so could get a good view. As it erupts without warning have... More

This was a place that I wish I could have enjoyed, it looked really cool in pictures and I was excited. When I got there, the first thing I was greeted to was the overwhelming smell of sulfur (A rotten egg smell.) There was a huge crowd around a geysir which when shot up in the sky was a little...

We really enjoyed this - quite mesmerizing. Allow about 30 minutes. Highly recommend hotel across street - Hotel Geysir. Also, shopping area across street has wonderful selection, so stop there if time. All in all, a fun visit!

If u have not seen a geyser before it is a good stop, not as large as some in Yellowstone but lots of fun. It erupts quickly and is over in 15-20 seconds or so without warning so good views available.
