If you visit Iceland, be sure to take a tour into the wild and see some of the geysers.
Geysers are hot springs with boiling water which may erupt.
Strokkur is one of the most popular geysers that many tourists plan to visit – no surprise, it is on the Golden Circle road and on the way to Gullfoss Waterfall. I rented a car from the airport and spent one entire day driving around, stopping at many different points. Strokkur was one of the first stops on my mini road trip as it’s not far from the capital city at all.
When you get to Strokkur, park in one of the lots across the street. Parking is free and you can grab fresh food indoors, buy clothing, get souvenirs, and make a restroom stop.
After you gaze at Strokkur Geyser, take a walk around. There are many mud pools and small boiling water pools. You can also take a short hike up towards the cliffs. Wear boots as they will get muddy!
You can also plan to stay overnight. There are nearby hotels and Airbnb’s along with camp sites closeby. It is only about 1 hour 30 minutes from Reykjavik so a day trip is easy to do as well.
