When to Visit
The geysers, which were activated by an earthquake years ago, are a big attraction in Iceland and people travel across the country to witness this geographical display. To avoid the crowds get here early before sunset or hang around after sunset for a glimpse of them in the dark.
What to Expect
The smaller geysers go off every couple of minutes or so, billowing steam into the cold air and releasing the strange smell of sulphur while the larger geyser’s, Strokkur and Geysir, erupt less often.
