About Geysir, Selfoss

Iceland is quite famous for its tall sprouting geysers or ‘geysir’ as they are called locally. These wonderful natural wonders are widely found all over the country and are especially present near the Selfoss area. So a geyser is basically a spring, but in this case the water is ejected more turbulently and is accompanied by steam. The two most famous geysers out of them are The Great Geysir and the Strokkur geyser. The Great Geyser was formed in the 13th century and till the 19th century used to regularly spout hot water and steam 60-80 meters in the air up until 1916, when it stopped completely. Since then eruptions have been quite rare and uncommon. The nearby Stokkur geyser though still erupts at every 10 minutes or so and is able to reach 30 meters height. The area has many hot and cold springs, steam vents, sulphurous mud and unique plants in the vicinity which makes the view stunning and surreal. Also people have the choice to take a dip in one of the springs, but should not try to enter the geyser hole or touch the water. The area has good parking, toilets, souvenir store and food shops. It is a major ‘hotspot’ for all tourists. Pun intended.

  • Adorable but SO expensive. They actually have like legitimate outlets and all the souvenirs you could ever need but there are cheaper shops in the city.

  • Good location for outdoor garments. Good selection of Icewear.

  • Rarely write such a negative review but bought a souvenir cup from here When I opened it back at hotel it was chipped their customer service lady wasted a large part of my last day trying to resolve it & accusing me of having damaged it myself! Alacia the lady I spoke with promised to resolve it I called back when requested it was not resolved ... so I gave her my details she promised to call back & I have not heard anything since. Shame it was only a mug & I probably spent more on phone calls & time than it's worth! Bottom line think twice before you buy anything there because if there is an issue with it their customer service is worse than terrible!

  • Very nice, expensive clothes. I am not convinced the cost to value is appropriate but I know my wife is happy with her purchase.

  • Geysir is the larger of the two in the area. It usual only erupts fully when there is earthquake activity. Did not see it erupt when I was there, however it boils and looks cool.
