Grand Circle tour route

The Geysir Geothermal Field is one of the three top attractions on the popular Grand Circle tour circuit. The other two are Gullfoss waterfall and Thingvellir.


The site is 40 kilometers (25 miles) northeast of Reykjavik – and a short drive from Gullfoss waterfall.

World's other
leading geothermal areas

They include Yellowstone National Park (USA), Rotorua (New Zealand), Geyser Valley (Russia), and Beppu (Japan).

More pointers


The field is relatively compact and easily walkable.

You explore the field on foot along a safe path that leads you very close to the various geothermal features. But don't stray. If you slip into a hot pool or mud pot, you could be gravely burned.

As you would at all other geothermal areas on our planet, you will notice a sulphuric odor (smells like over-boiled eggs, or worse).

There's a museum with interesting educational exhibits.

Admission is free (as with nearly all of Iceland's natural attractions)
