Outside Perlan there is Strókur, the artificial geyser. For the entertainment and instructions of the public regarding hot-spring activity, Hitaveita Reykjavíkur, The Municipal Geothermal Heathing Authority, has built a model simulating the mechanics of a geyser. The hole is 30 meters deep and the water is up to 125 degrees C. See one of my pictures for how it works.

Address: Öskjuhlíð (Oskjuhlid) Reykjavík
Directions: Perlan is situated on Öskjuhlíð hill, very close to the city center and the domestic airport.
