The Great Geysir
The Great Geysir, also called Stori-Geysir, is one of the most popular natural attractions in Iceland. It had been more or less dormant since 1916, but it was not known for certain whether this was only temporary or permanent. But then the geyser started erupting again in the year 2000 after a series of earthquakes.

There is also another geyser that visitors can marvel at. This other geyser is known as Strokkur or “The Churn”. It is located 100 metres to the south of the Great Geyser. Strokkur erupts every ten minutes or so, sending up a column of boiling water that can reach up to 30 metres. The rest of the area features small hot springs, steam vents, mud pots and primitive plants.
