Geysir

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.
Start off your visit on the 6th (Wed): take in the natural beauty of Strokkur, then admire the sheer force of Gullfoss, and then tee off at Geysir Golf Course.

To plan Geysir vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates to Geysir is an approximately 17-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 4 hours traveling from Dubai to Geysir. Plan for much colder temperatures traveling from Dubai in March, with highs in Geysir at 5°C and lows at 0°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 6th (Wed) early enough to go by car to Vik.
