Strokkur is a very active geyser, who sprays a mighty jet into the air every few minutes. The water starts bubbling and then suddenly hoppa. Photos do not do justice to the phenomenon. The video I have still gives me goosebumps. You haven't been to Iceland if you haven't seen a geyser.
Cool place. Someone said that the downside is nearby restaurant but that was actually so much appreciated in cold weather. Enjoyed the geysers and enjoyed the hot soup after.
We were there mid September and it wasn't crowded at all. The geyser erupts regularly and it's really impressive! You'll have to accept te scent but the visit is totally worth it.
