Biskupstungnabraut, Iceland

Explore Strokkur Geyser

Originally 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.

Strokkur & Geyser

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

Powerful

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!

Worth A Visit, If You Haven't Seen a Geyser Before

Going to Geysir is fun if you've never seen a thermal feature before. If you have visited Yellowstone and have a limited time in Iceland, I would skip visiting here. Fairly underwhelming to Yellowstone's geysers and hot springs. If you are already driving the Golden Circle, it's worth a quick stop.
