Geysir ©
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 2nd (Tue): relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, enjoy some diversion at Fridheimar, then take in the natural beauty of Strokkur, and finally admire the sheer force of Gullfoss. Here are some ideas for day two: get outside with Golden Circle Route.

To find other places to visit, photos, maps, and tourist information, use the Geysir travel planner.

Denver, USA to Geysir is an approximately 14-hour flight. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from Denver to Geysir due to the time zone difference. While traveling from Denver, expect cooler days and about the same nights in Geysir, ranging from highs of 46°F to lows of 40°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Thu) early enough to go by car to Vik.
