The geothermal field is pretty cool to walk through. Just follow the stream of people to find strokkur. It erupts every 10-15 minutes and although it isnt as large as Old Faithful, it is more active.

Never saw anything like this in my life before. A live active geysir bursting out every 5-10 mins 24x7. Truly justifies the 'land of ice and fire' name for Iceland.

I mean, yes it’s cool that the water shoots out and the amount of minigeysers throughout is also neat. But the large geysir event is so quick when it happens it’s a bit of an anticlimax. Of the Golden Circle Tour this was my least...More

You can almost set your watch by the eruptions every 5-10 minutes. The geysir is just a short walk from the main road. It is best to stand back and determine which way the wind is blowing and where to stand.

Yet another stop off, The Geysir will erupt every 5 mins or so some will be big some not so big but still worth a look. Strong smell of sulphur as you would expect but it's not an issue and it's just nature

We stopped at the Geyser and Hot Springs area on our way south from Gullfoss waterfall. Strokkur erupts about every 10 minutes. Some eruptions are almost a burp but when it fully erupts it is awesome. Have your camera ready because it goes very quickly....More

This a tourist hotspot. All geysers are named after this. The Strokkur blasts 15-30 m in the air every 10 minutes. Only a short walk on the flat from the car park. This is the 2nd biggest in the world. There is the usual visitor...More

What a great place to start our sightseeing on Iceland! As a geologist, this geothermal area has been on my ‘bucket list’ for a long time, but even my two teenagers totally enjoyed the experience!

It's nice to see the geysers shooting every 5-10 minutes. It's free and there is parking place too. Best veiws are from the mountain next to it where you can really see how high it shoots. the hike up the mountain should be about 15-20...More
