  • The first three waves will not erupt. After the fourth the geysir erupts. Mostly 10+meters. Be aware of the direction of the wind!

  • This will take you as long as you want it to. We were there about 30 minutes and witnessed 3 eruptions, one of which was enormous. Park at the centre and cross the road. It’s not very well signposted....  more

  • Fun little walk through geothermal landscape. The geyser goes off about every 10 minutes, which absolutely delighted my young children. You could spend 15 minutes here or hours depending on how much you want to hike around.
  • If you haven't seen a geyser before, you'll find this to be interesting. We enjoyed seeing it but we wouldn't take the time to stop at again.
