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 really is one of the most dedicated tour guides! Heโ€™s so knowledgeable about his country and goes to great lengths to show it off by travelling all over it! Today we were at the geysers and he has excellent background knowledge. His tours are always fun too and he gives ample great postcard opportunities!
