    The whole area is called 'Geysir', but the only active eruptions are happening from Strokkur. Really incredible, actually. Every 8 to 10 minutes, it erupts. Just be ready with the camera! Would have loved to have seen the original Geysir, as it apparently erupted 4 to 5 times as high, but Strokkur is still impressive.

    very nice attraction to visit, when I was there in April 2024 it was cold and windy and the lake was frozen, but the view was still amazing

    A lovely modern cathedral with a beautiful image of Christ behind the altar.
    In a lovely location on the Golden Circle. The museum in the crypt was also interesting.

    Nice one to tick off the list! There was not visible red hot lava but a good viewpoint regardless..pretty cool to visit an active volcano!

    What an amazing experience this was!!! They were able to accommodate a last minute booking for us and we were so happy they did despite the drizzly, cold weather. They equipped us with warm, waterproof jacket and pants and we enjoyed every minute of our hour long ride. The owner and our guide both taught us a great deal about Icelandic horses including their 5 gaits, and we even got to experience how smooth their unique tölt gait is during our ride. Our guide Hannah was so fun and helpful, and took photos of us at the beginning of our ride and at scenic points which we really appreciated. At the end of our trip the owner awaited us with coffee and cake to help warm us up. Everyone we interacted with was friendly, informative, and professional, the views were stunning, and we had a truly great experience. I hope to come back someday! Thank you!

    An excellent day trip, our guide “Kevin” (because his real name was too hard to pronounce) was attentive, funny and made our trip even more enjoyable. We started with the glacier as the weather was due to turn, and he wanted us to see it without getting soaked. It was stunning, well worth the walk, although I would suggest if you have remotely slippery shoes, buy some grips. At times it was a bit of a struggle to find a non-slippery part of the path to walk on. Don’t let that put you off though...it was beeeeaauuutiful! Then on to black beach in Vik, followed by the two waterfalls (one of which featured in Game of Thrones) Walkways to the waterfalls was again quite slippery, sheet ice in places, but I genuinely didn’t see anybody fall, so as long as you take care, and have good grip on your shoes, it shouldn’t be a problem.
    Kevin, brought samples of Icelandic food and drink for us all, and then dropped us off back in Reykjavik as near to our Airbnb as he could. I would highly recommend this trip, it was 10 hours with an 8am pick up, and worth every penny.

    When we visited Iceland for the first time in 2018, I found Páll on Facebook as my inspiration for best places and pictures of Iceland and since then the idea of wedding photos in Iceland lived in my head. I sent him message year prior to our wedding to ask if he would be able to take our pictures, but in the way that he would be taking pictures of beautiful nature of Iceland and us in it. When the time came, we spent 2 wonderful day with Páll and we enjoyed every minute of it, not just the pictures we received are just unique and gorgeous, but the time we spent with him was just brilliant! He answer all of our questions, showing us special places which we didn't even know they existed, he took us on Aurora hunt which became night we will never forget.
    And to see him how excited he was to see the Northern lights after living his whole life in Iceland was just so heartwarming as you could see how much he loves his country and the work he is doing. He will be always part of our special day as he is in every picture, just behind the camera.
    Thank you so much Páll from both of us, we hope we will meet again.

    West Iceland was voted one of Lonely Planet’s best destinations. The Grabrok volcano crater with lunar like lava marks is a spectacular sight. One has to be fit to scale the 1.5 km hike up with most gradients at 45 degrees. Fortunately, the stair pathway was very well constructed. Thank God, we made it!👏
