The Geysir Geothermal Area is one of the main attractions in a popular route called the Golden Circle, and is named after the biggest geyser in the area. Geysir is now quiet, but another geyser called Strokkur erupts every eight minutes or so offering a magnificent display. Boiling hot water rockets 10–20 meters into the air without warning. This is a great place to take a walk around the steaming vents and boiling geysers and, of course, see Strokkur erupt. In the area there is a swimming pool, a restaurant, a hotel, and a camping ground.
This amazing place is included in all our self drive itineraries for those who don't have much time it is also included in all our Golden Circle day tours and is truly a must see place to visit.
