Glaciers/ Geysers/ Waterfalls, Reykjavík Region: 25 reviews and 55 photos
We travelled two hours or so out of Reykjavik to Geysir, the name of the place belies it's treasure.
Featuring a show of bubbling natural mineral hot pots which spurted their contents, 50/60 ft into the air every 4 to 7 mins, just as if from a whales blow hole. Following this burst of energy comes a slow drift of steam across the atmosphere. These release valves of the Earth have the stench of sulphur and are arranged with colours so striking they are mesmarizing.
Apart from the geysers, there is a shop with a small geological explanation area, gifts, food and a picture window where you can sit and view the geysers.
Directions: Geysir, North of Reykjavik
