Geysers from Geysir Iceland
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Geysers from Geysir

South of Reykjavik is the "gold-circle" circuit which you should definitely not miss; it includes the Thingvellir site, Gulfoss falls and, most of all, Geysir, 20 miles away from Laugarvatn. Geysir got its name from the geyser natural phenomena. Here, the Strokkur - the area's star - eructates a stream of hot vapour over 20 m high every 5 minutes. After sleeping for several decades, even the old Geyser got into the game.
