About the tour

Geysir spouting hotspring area - the first of its kind discovered on our planet. The hotspring Strokkur - the Churn- spouts every 3 - 8 minutes but the height of the gush varies. It can go as high as 40 metres. The famous old Geysir has more or less "retired" and only goes off if there have been handsome earthquakes nearby, but when it does it can go as high as 60 meters. Geysir gave its name to all spouting hotsprings on the planet. This area is a good example of how inner forces of the earth can affect the looks of the surface, you'll learn more on that during the tour.

Albert's tours are always excellent. To see the geysers with him was a breath taking experience. He always goes the extra mile to makes sure we get good postcard shots, and the information he gives is first class.
