The Strokkur Geisir is the highlight of this walk around various bubbling pits. It erupts regularly and you never have to wait more than 10 minutes to see it perform. Guides tell you that the best photo is to obtained from some distance away, so that you can capture the full height of the expulsion. We much preferred watching it at close quarters. At the key moment a beautiful blue bubble appears at the base, vanishing in a second as the steam and boiling water is shot upwards to an impressive height. You can watch this from so close that it is in a way somewhat better than Yellowstone's Old Faithful.
In mid-winter the walk around the park can be tricky with various difference types of ice and snow to be negotiated. We held on to each other and walked very cautiously, warned by the sight of two or three other visitors crashing to the icy ground.
