Geysir ©
Geysir tourism revolves around a famed geyser, which goes from very calm to extremely volatile depending on the subterranean seismic activity at the time.
Kick off your visit on the 6th (Sun): take in the natural beauty of Haukadalur, then take in the dramatic scenery at Gullfoss Falls, and then take in the natural beauty of Strokkur.

To find traveler tips, photos, maps, and more tourist information, read Geysir route planner.

Winnipeg, Canada to Geysir is an approximately 14.5-hour combination of flight and car. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Winnipeg to Geysir due to the time zone difference. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Winnipeg in June, with highs in Geysir at 15°C and lows at 9°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sun) to allow enough time to drive to Vik.
