The actual Geysir at Geysir Geothermal Area may be silent these days but Stokkur geyser is taking its place. This is an incredible area of intense geothermal activity and puddles of water on the ground literally boil.

On my seven days trip to Iceland, the last stop was to the Strokkur geyser, which is a fountain geyser located in a geothermal area beside the Hvítá River. It is one of, if not Iceland’s most famous geysers and erupts roughly every 6–10 minutes....More

The fog and rain made this look like a blast of steam. Much more enjoyable at Yellowstone. The water after the Geysir was warm at best as it ran off.

Geysir in Reykjavik was one of the must stops in a tour of Reykjavik. This was a high geothermal area with a base temperature of 250C and the temperature of the hot springs in the area was up to 100C so be careful not to...More
