Meeting the Explosive Geysir

After having an amazing morning dog sledding with massive Greenlandic Huskies, it was off to the famous Geysir. The original Geysir doesn’t erupt much anymore (guess he/she is getting a bit old) but a slightly smaller geysir – named Strokkur – erupts every 5-7 minutes and is pretty damn incredible. There really isn’t much to say about it that the photos can’t say better.

So what do you think? Would you love to spend an afternoon watching the geysir erupt?


Getting to Reykjavik: This is a major hub between Europe and North America, but I highly recommend Iceland Air for reliable flights and connections

Camera: Images captured with an iPhone 4S
Remember: When I wrote this post Iceland was still very under the radar. It has now grown into a hugely popular destination for tourists – to avoid the crowds, I recommend visiting in the winter months
