Geysir tourism revolves around a famed geyser, which goes from very calm to extremely volatile depending on the subterranean seismic activity at the time.
Visiting Strokkur and Thingvellir National Park will get you outdoors. Get out of town with these interesting Geysir side-trips: Gjain (in Svartsengi), Deildartunguhver Thermal Spring (in Reykholt) and Hraunfossar (in Husafell). The adventure continues: take in the dramatic scenery at Gullfoss Falls, explore the striking landscape at Askja, and take a pleasant ride with Icelandic HorseWorld.
