... shows you how much geothermal activity is going on underground! There is actually a bakery at the site where they cook the bread in underground ovens using the geyser steam. The ovens are basically holes in the ground with a hatch on top. After lunch at Geysir, we went off to our last stop in the Golden Circle, which was really amazing.
