Very unique and lots to see. Nice wooden walkways make walking around most of this area easy but if you want to circle around it you will be on some hilly dirt paths, which are not difficult but wearing proper footwear is important. This area...More

While not the most popular geysers and geothermal active areas, certainly worth the stop to see. The main geyser is on a six to eight minute cycle and worth waiting for. Note that the wind can cause a bit of havoc when the geyser blows,...More

Has a very nice restaurant with clean bathrooms. Of course the mandatory gift shop. The areas of the geysers are on the other side of street. Easy walk to multiple geysers. Some explode more often than others. Worth the wait. Watch for wind direction when...More

Iceland has a lot of thermal activity. The geysers are different than what you would see in Yellowstone Park, for example. Yellowstone has geysers that go much higher than in Iceland. On the otherhand, the Geysers in Krysuvik go off much more often. So if...More

We went in November, which means everything was covered in snow. We didn’t get to see the colours that are apparently one of the best parts of the area. However, aside from two other people we were entirely alone, which was pretty cool.
