The geysir is really spectacular when it erupts. It lasts about 10mins. The information centre is a must to visit because it explains the science of this geyser and how other types work. A great place for students and families.

Do not mix it up. The Andernach geysir is a cold water geysir, it is very different from the natural hot water geysirs. A hole needed to be drilled several meters deep so that it actually works. So don‘t be too disappointed if you have...More

It is an interactive museum. Children and Adults can learn, how volcanism works. The start is amazing. You will travel with an elevator 4000m to the middle of the earth to a laboratory (it feels like that, you will travel to the first floor :)...More

Took in the "eruption" of the geyser while visiting the town of Andernach on a river cruise. While it is an interesting natural phenomenon, I preferred walking through the town and checking out the tower and the church that has been riddled with bullet holes...More

Other answer is wrong. Well kinda. To actually be allowed to see the geysir, you need to pay the whole package, including the boat. So yes, you CAN park your car a few walking minutes nearby, but they won‘t let you cross the... More

Car Hire help, any1 hired without high preauthorised deposit (34 Replies)
Hi, Sorry I know there's loads of car hire posts but I've been looking for ages and can't find a definite answer. I'm a bit confused as looking at car hire on holidayautos there's some decent prices but all T&C's say will require a deposit on arrival (preauthorised on credit card) of £2000-£3000!!(depending on company) This seems ridiculous to me?! Or is it just me that can't afford to have £3000 withheld from my available balance without dying from starvation whilst there? Because if...More

I don't know what holidayautos is, but that deposit seems standard for Iceland. When are you travelling here?

Which direction to travel around Ring Road (6 Replies)
I plan on arriving in Iceland 1st week in October and will have 9 days to travel around the Ring Road. So from Keflavik airport should I travel north to Borganes to Stykkisholmur to Akureyri down to Hof to Vik to Geysir and back to catch my flight in Keflavik. Or should I travel south towards Vik. In which direction will the temperatures be warmer to begin with. Thanks. Eleana

Response fromyes-Rvk|
The temperatures will be warmer in an unknown direction :) I would suggest beginning by going to the south, then East (obviously), then Akureyri, and then go to Reykjavík. Preferably don't take the Snæfellsnes Peninsula as well, unless you're having fine good weather, and sufficient time.

13 Days for Ring Road — how much time in Western Fjords? (12 Replies)
We are two women who will be in Iceland for two weeks in late August. Our plan is to rent a car and to drive the Ring Road, clockwise. We are both “of a certain age” so we will do some walking...but hiking will not be on our agenda. The travel agent has us with 3 days (Aug. 19-21) in the Western Fjords, and I’m wondering if that is too long if we are not hiking and if the puffins have probably already flown away....and are we missing out on concentrating on other parts of the Ring Road...More

Response from2KaTTs|
Rather than too much time, in my opinion, three days in the Westfjords is far too little to see all you've listed, especially if you are driving all the way up to Ísafjörður AND driving the Strandir coast. We did the same loop in six days and wouldn't have wanted less. I would suggest either adding more days there or skipping it and adding more time elsewhere.
