There are two geysers at Geysir. One, named Strokkur, is particularly active. Water is forced 25 - 35 metres into the air by a build of steam and the resulting high pressure beneath it every three to five minutes. There are several small bubbling springs here too.

Our turn came and the four of us, one at a time, were locked onto safety ropes and walked across the four-metre walkway to the cage of the lift, swapping safety lines as we ...

... down again. We waited for a while for more to turn up but nothing showed. Eiry was getting really cold so decided to go downstairs in the warm cafe. Nathan stayed up stairs waiting for more whales. Everyone on the top deck was so fed up that they weren't even looking. Just Nathan and some Asian girl. A minke whale appeared twice and it was only us who saw it. The boat stop and ...
