Explore Strokkur Geyser

Biskupstungnabraut, Iceland

based on 9 reviews


Added by Lucas Pols

One of the highlights of the golden circle in Iceland.

The Geyser, Strokkur, has a small rest stop built around it and after parking, you will walk about five minutes north of the road. There is a high level of anticipation and thrill sitting and waiting for Strokkur to explode.

It occurs around every 5-10 minutes and if you are lucky enough to be there during the sunset you can get a nice glow from the sun behind the geyser.

There is also an additional geyser near Stokkur and both go off relatively frequently. Definitely a fascinating place to explore, and not to miss if you are on the Golden Circle.

This was my favorite stop along the golden circle. There are beautiful trails surrounding the geyser and if you get up to the high point you have great views. If in June the lupine will be blooming as well.

I have never seen a geyser before, so watching this nature wonder from up close was really amazing. I totally recommend to plan a visit even if it takes you outside of your itinerary as it extremely impressive.

The color and light are other worldly. If there are clear skies, you're in for an absolute treat. During the peak hours this place can get pretty busy (tour buses and other groups tend to stop here frequently).

Super impressive place with hot springs, beautiful colors of soil and super fresh air!! I love it!

I've been to Old Faithful before, but something about this geyser was different. Most likely, it was the fact that I was alllll the way over in Iceland, a foreign country to me. However, this was still something extremely powerful to see in person. About ever ~2 minutes or so, the geyser would erupt nearly 2 stories high. Sitting patiently, waiting to catch another eruption and capture it with my camera was actually very fun. The surprise of the eruption excites you every time and makes your heart race. Definitely recommend!
