This is very effective visit: every couple minutes tge bog geysir gets off - sometimes only a small "shot" but very often a pretty portion of water put in the air. Definitely recommend more »
This is certainly an interesting place to visit but it isn’t somewhere you’d stay for hours, In fact me and my partner probably stayed around 15 to 20 minutes saw strokkur shoot twice into the air... more »
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
