Geysir tourism revolves around a famed geyser, which goes from very calm to extremely volatile depending on the subterranean seismic activity at the time.
Kick off your visit on the 31st (Mon): take a memorable drive along Golden Circle Route. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 1st (Tue): get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour, have fun at Fridheimar, and then take in the natural beauty of Strokkur.

To see photos, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Geysir trip itinerary maker.

Atlanta, USA to Geysir is an approximately 17.5-hour combination of car and flight. Traveling from Atlanta to Geysir, you'll lose 5 hours due to the time zone difference. Plan for cooler temperatures traveling from Atlanta in July, with highs in Geysir at 54°F and lows at 49°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Vik.
