  • Every 8-10 minutes she blows! Really cool to see the boiling little pot on the way to Strokkur and see the mineral colors from the water m. Even in the ice the water that drains out is hot . Nice...

  • Very enjoyable, and you didn't have to wait very long for an eruption, as they happen every few minutes. Lots of people, but a nice big gift store, and lots of hot pots to look at and watch...

  • Very rare nature wonder, small geyser erupts every 5 minutes, sometimes every 3 minutes. It's hard to describe, but looks amazing. There are some sleeping geysers with boiling water, additional care should be taken when walking around. Unfortunately I didn't see big geyser eruption (
  • Pretty cool area of geothermal activity with great views. Worth a visit for sure. Free parking and visitor centre on site
