    You're in Iceland, the country...

    You're in Iceland, the country of geysirs. You have two possibilities. Either you take a long daytrip to the real geysir or visit Haetta, the artificial geysir which is located in Reykjavik.

    The picture is of the artificial one. It works with the same principle as the real geysirs.

    Gullfoss Waterfall

    by maryellen50 Written Aug 12, 2006

    One of Iceland's most famous natural wonders is Gullfoss, or “Golden Falls.” With a 105-foot double-cascade, Gullfoss is Europe’s most powerful waterfall. On a sunlit day, the mist clouds surrounding the hammering falls are filled with dozens of rainbows, providing an unparalleled spectacle of color and motion. This is part of the "Golden Circle' tour of the Reykjavik area.

    Iceland Geysirs

    by maryellen50 Written Aug 12, 2006

    The Great Geysir has been somewhat shy in recent decades. When Geysir does perform, it lives up to its name, spewing a jet of steaming water 200 feet skyward.
    A less spectacular geysir is Strokkur (“the churn”), which spouts a 60-100 foot jet about once every five minutes. The geyser area has walking paths that lead past steaming vents and colorful, mineral-rich mud formations.
    This is part of the Golden Circle tour of the Reykjavik area.

    The World second largest Geyser

    by castersugar43 Updated May 11, 2005

    We join the Golden Triangle trip and the Geysir is one of the places included in the tour. The tour last for whole day and it is worth to join as it includes several must see places in Iceland. There are three Geysers. The one which bursts quite often is the medium Geyser. The largest one in Iceland only bursts three times a day.

    Gulfoss Waterfall

    by castersugar43 Written May 11, 2005

    It is the one of the destinations that the Golden Traiangle trip included. The waterfall is so big and the view there is spectacular. You can walk closely to the water. You should be very careful as the ground is slippery!

  • Look at the blow job :)

    by tedi Written Mar 12, 2005

    To look at some blowing water seems to be a very simple activity, but it is really amusing when you stand close to it. It suddenly just blows. Like if the earth have been tickled or something.

    The small ones are really cute. :)

    You sould take a bus around Iceland and check the Gullfoss, geysirs and vulcanos. Nature is so amazing, you must see them. Ask from tourist information, they arrange some bus tours.

    Must be Disney stuff

    by Rob&Giz Updated Apr 4, 2011

    The Strokkur goes so on time that it must be controlled. Probably the geysir died years ago, but to keep the tourists coming Disney is making money now.

    Just a little boiling The Strokkur building up. On ou way a double rainbow How to attack a glacier

  • Golden circle tour, gulfoss and geysirs

    by alexfenton Written Jan 4, 2005

    The Golden circle tour was quite expensive but well worth it as we got a complete guided tour of frozen waterfalls (gulfoss), geysirs, lava fields, greenhouses and much more!

    stokkur erupts every 5-10 mins
