The trademark of Iceland, the great Geysir, gave the hotel its name and Geysir is situated right outside the front door of the hotel. Haukadalur is one of Iceland’s most famous historical sites, both ancient and today. The farmer’s son from Haukadalur, Sigurdur Greipsson, founded a sports school in his father's inheritance at Haukadalur, which he operated with his wife Sigrun Bjarnadóttir for a period of forty-three years. Today Hotel Geysir is run by Sigurdur Greipsson daughter in law, Sigridur Vilhjálmsdóttur along with her children, Mábil and Sigurdur.
The Geysir-Center, which is directly opposite the geothermal area of Geysir and Strokkur, consists of a whole building complex with restaurants, souvenir shop, outdoor and clothing store, Geysir design store, snack shop and a camping area. Also there is endless activities all around the area: golf course, fishing, hiking, outdoor paradise the Haukadalur woods, horse rentals, Langjökull glacier tours, river rafting and river jet. Therefore it is perfect for day trips because of many different possibilities of entertainment.
This landmark of Iceland is a spectacular natural phenomenon beyond description. The geothermal field surrounding the Great Geyser is the definitive geyser, having given its name to the geological phenomena. Strokkur, another famous geyser located at the hot spring area, gives a performance every few minutes, shooting a tower of water and steam 30 meters into the air. There are other attractions apart from the magnificent geysers. For example, Blesi, a hot spring with water the colour of turquoise delights the senses.
Walking about this natural wonder, one experiences the intensity of the forces of nature. Night time offers a fascinating view of the bubbling hot springs and the northern lights. A pot of boiling water takes on new dimensions.
We place great pride in that all are equally pleased at the arrival and departure and your stay will be pleasant and memorable.
