The Great Geysir of Iceland

One of the greatest natural attractions of Iceland and part of the famous “Golden Circle Tour”, The Great Geysir, or Stori-Geysir.

The Strokkur Geysir (Icelandic meaning: geysir “to gush” and strokkur “to churn”).  The geysir smells like sulfuric-rotting eggs, because of the sulfur in it.  Geysers are usually found in areas with volcanic activities.   Strokkur is one of Iceland’s most famous geysers erupting every 8-10 minutes, and its white column of boiling water can reach about 15-20 meters high and sometime up to 40 meters.
