The Strokur Geyser erupts every eight to ten minutes and is unique and exciting each time water from the geyser rockets into the air. There is quite an extensive trails system for hikers of all levels and the trails are very well maintained.

This could be one of the ‘never to miss tourist attractions’ in Iceland. It’s unbelievably beautiful, magical as erupts every 5 min and the hot mist in icy weather is truly memorable

This Geyser is temporarily "out of order" but the one next door (100 meters) Strokkur erupts every 5 minutes. Get there early otherwise it can get noisy and our selfie friends can ruin any visit.

Strokkur geyser is the famous one that you have to wait approximately 8-10 min in between eruptions..but it is well worth the wait! Have your cameras ready and sometimes there are even 2 eruptions in a row!! Very fun stop and you only need to...More

This site is part of the classic Golden Circle route along with Gullfoss and Thingvellir. The Geysir (Strokkur) is a reliable and frequent eruptor, erupting every 6 - 8 minutes. A Geological wonder.
