Another 'must see' when in Iceland. We went on a Golden Triangle Tour' with Grayline. Unfortunately, as this was in December & the last place we visited on the 6 hour tour, the light was starting to fade on our arrival. We did however get to see the geyser in all it's glory and it was an absolutely fantastic display of nature. There is a café on site which also sells woollen clothing & a nice gift shop. Far exceeded my expectations and would definitely visit again.

This geyser was fantastic to watch for ~30-45 minutes. We got there late afternoon, so there was still sunlight but the crowd was dying down a bit, hence the views were amazing and picture-perfect. If you stand upwind, you can get good video of the 1.5 seconds of pre-eruption bubbling, which is le-git! The outlined perimeter is just the right distance to get high-quality pics of the geyser and the bubbling hole in the ground. Have your bathroom pit-stop there and then go to Gullfoss while you're at it.

We witnessed the explosion of one of the geyser and it was totally awesome! Loved our visit , there are several geysers in the area and it was really cool to see 'em all!

I loved this place. There is nowhere else like it.

Strokkur is part of the Geysir complex of geysers (where the word originates). Strokkur is no the most reliable geyser to erupt roughly every 11 minutes.

It is eggy and the water is very hot (make sure you stand up wind).

The visitor centre is also good for gifts, toilets and food.

It is free to enter.

We arrived a little after 10 on a sunny but cold October morning and maybe saw at the most 20 other people at the site. We were able to get great pictures without a bunch of people in the pic and didn't have to feel like we were blocking anyone's shot or taking too long, we hung around thru several eruptions had fantastic views and a nice visit without a crowd. We then went up to Gulfoss and ran into all sorts of tour busses and crowds at around 1130. Might suggest trying the waterfall first to beat the busses and then leave early enough to beat them to Geysir
