Welcome to Hotel Geysir
Iceland - pure, untamed nature, unbridled space, impressive waterfalls, home to one of the world's most powerful geysers.
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 descendant of Sigurdur Greipsson, Már Sigurdsson (youngest son of Sigurdur and Sigrun) and his wife Sigridur Vilhjálmsdóttur along with their children, Mábil Gróa and Sigurdur.
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. The Strokkur, another famous geyser located nearby, 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. 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.
The hotel has twenty four twin/double studio rooms in cabins beside the river. Each are outfitted with two single/double beds, television, a comfy armchair and bathroom. A taste of luxury, just two minutes from the thermal fields and just a few steps from the swimming pool and hot tubs, which are included for hotel guests. All in all, this has to be the perfect framework for rest, relaxation, and getting charged up for the next activity.
The hotel pool is a natural geothermal swimming pool. It is approximately 35-40°c and 16.5 m long and an ideal place to enjoy yourself with family and friends. Beside the pool there are hot tubs, which are good to relax after a walk around the area. Nothing compares to lying at the hot tubs watching the stars or the northern light and relax in the spectacular nature.
Iceland is an island capable of tempting visitors to a host of activities. One should however not forget that vacations are also for taking advantage of time by relaxing body and soul to the utmost. To reach this level of relaxation it is essential that the surroundings be conducive to this.
