We were so happy to be here among the geysers. We took so many photos and videos. Went for a swim in the hot water also followed by breakfast around the geyser.

It is early in the day, it is minus 15 and you are with a lot of other tour busses there, but is all worth it.

You can drive close to most of the geysers so one must walk for about five minutes or about 100-200 yards as I recall to be at the geysers. However most of them can also be seen from further away so one not need to walk... More
