In the geothermal valley of Haukadalur in South Iceland, you'll find the Great Geysir and the active Strokkur. The area is noted for the vivid colouration of its surrounding hills, caused by elements deep in the earth being brought to the surface by the geothermal activity.
Strokkur is Iceland’s most visited active geyser. One of the three major attractions on the world-famous Golden Circle sightseeing route, it is usually visited alongside Gullfoss Waterfall and Þingvellir National Park.
This route is included in plenty of guided vacations and self-drive tours that travel around Iceland, such as this 6-Day Summer Package and this 10-Day Road Trip. Those renting a car will be able to reach it independently with ease. Alternatively, book an organised Golden Circle tour.
