Geysir tourism revolves around a famed geyser, which goes from very calm to extremely volatile depending on the subterranean seismic activity at the time.
On the 6th (Fri), take in the natural beauty of Strokkur, then take in the dramatic scenery at Gullfoss, and then examine the collection at Hekla Centre. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: get outside with Golden Circle Route.

Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Take a break from Reykjavik with a short trip to Spas & Wellness in Grindavik, about 44 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Hallgrimskirkja, trot along with a tour on horseback, pause for some photo ops at Sun Voyager, and make a trip to The Pearl (Perlan).

To find photos, traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Reykjavik trip itinerary maker.

You can drive from Geysir to Reykjavik in 1.5 hours. Another option is to take a bus. In July, plan for daily highs up to 58°F, and evening lows to 49°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 11th (Wed) to allow time for travel back home.
