The Strokkur Geysir is next to the Geysir which gave all geysirs its name. The experience is mind blowing and you can easily spend a day just looking

Miracles of Iceland. Little and big geysirs. It was quite cloudy day, but we saw the main point. Interesting place.

Well worth a visit! Loved the geothermal activity. There are several geysers to see and lots of smaller bubbling pools.

There are very few geyser regions in the world, and Iceland has one of the best. Make sure you travel to this area to witness the geysers that spout all day long. Amazing!! With the popularity of Iceland over recent years, this area is beginning to get a little too touristy, but the geysers are still au natural!!

Such a wonderful experience to witness this! The smell of sulphur was quite strong (smells like boiled eggs), but it does add to the whole experience!

It's one of those sites you have to see while visiting Iceland. It doesn't take long and the various geyser's are a strange site to behold. The area is covered in a thick sulphur smelling fog and at times it's tricky to see. There is only 1 geyser you will see erupt (it does so every 5mins) and goes to... More

This area has a few geysers but the main attraction is Strokkur that warriors every 4-5 minutes. You will get wet if you stand too close. The majestic geyser is a powerful force to watch.

I don't understand why some people don't appear to appreciate this area, according to their reviews, it is phenomenal!!! The Strokkur blows every five minutes, more or less, really beautiful!!!! No, it may not blow quite as high as Yellowstone's famous Old Faithful, but it is in a totally different setting in my favorite country (out of 21 I've visited... More

If its your first time visiting Iceland, you cannot miss Strokkur. Its a unique experience and we enjoyed it. Bring gloves with you if you try to take a photo as it erupts. Its 5-10 minutes so you feel the cold when you focus on the one spot, waiting ;) there are quite a lot of tourists, obviously, so pick... More
