Geysir tourism revolves around a famed geyser, which goes from very calm to extremely volatile depending on the subterranean seismic activity at the time.
Start off your visit on the 30th (Fri): take in the dramatic scenery at Gullfoss. Keep things going the next day: take a memorable drive along Golden Circle Route.

To see photos, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Geysir sightseeing planner.

Newark, USA to Geysir is an approximately 11.5-hour combination of car and flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Greenwich Mean Time, which is usually a 5 hour difference. When traveling from Newark in June, plan for much colder days in Geysir, with highs around 51°F, while nights are little chillier with lows around 46°F.
