Geysir

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.
Get in touch with nature at Strokkur and Gjain. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Geysir: Hraunfossar Lava Waterfall (in Hraunfossar) and Scuba & Snorkeling (in Akureyri). There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Gullfoss Falls, take in the natural beauty of Haukadalur, play a few rounds at Geysir Golf Course, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Skalholt Cathedral.

To find maps, traveler tips, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Geysir trip itinerary planning website.

Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Amsterdam in September, with highs in Geysir at 13°C and lows at 7°C. On the 22nd (Wed), you're off to Vik.
