We drove around the island in two weeks, so had the luxury of detouring off the main highway in search of unique sights. This one didn't involve that much of a detour, was very easy to walk to, and walk around, and erupted pretty frequently. It's no Yellowstone but the ease of getting there, plus seeing the geyser and gave... More

Good to see it...photo it....done it....next!!! Don't need long here...just drive yourself. easier and quicker. no rush. less busy. walk around them all, the smaller ones are good too but don't rush up in the air like Strokkur does every 5 mins.

This is a popular tourist stop along the Golden Circle Tour and often has small crowds. It is impressive and a sight worth seeing. You will get a little wet so be prepared for it (from wind and spray from the geiser). Highly recommend that you spend a little time here. Memorable gift shop as well.

This geysir erupt almost every 7 minutes. Great to see the build up before the eruption. Nice to see all the steam points around this geysir. We went early as park is always open. Great without any tourists

I loved how frequent this geysir went off. Didn't have to wait long and it erupted again! We were just so in awe of power of nature.

This is a great stop not far from Reykjavik. Strokkur blew every ten minutes or so when we visited. Definitely wait with your camera ready for the show. It was easy to access the geysers by wheelchair. It also looks like there are also efforts underway to improve the accessibility with new trails. There is a nice restaurant and picnic... More

The power and variety of nature in Iceland will never cease to amaze. This was no exception. The Strokkur geyser erupts at fairly regular intervals. It felt quite busy with tourists and can only imagine it will be more so in the summer months. There is a walkway installed and much of the water is taped off as the water... More

The geysir is a must see when visiting Iceland! Within 5 - 10 minutes it will erupt. The atmosphere is great, lots of people all gathered round with their cameras. Our guide told us to not take our eyes off the area for a second else we would miss it. They were not wrong, we got some great shots of... More

A must do, a once in a lifetime experience. We were there on Ist Week of February, it was freezing with a little bit of snow but it was all part of the experience, the waiting for it to explode is unpredictable though sometimes at 2 minute interval, sometimes more according to my experience and some are just small explosions...

We hired a car and self drove the golden circle, Strokkur was the second stop of the route and very easy to find as there is a large visitor centre / restaurant/ gift shop with free parking. As you would expect everything is very expensive here and we took a packed lunch to save a little money. Strokkur is free... More
