Iceland (6) – Geysir

Geysir is located about 105 Kms east of Reykjavik on Highway 36.  Unfortunately, the activity of the “Great Geyser” averages about 3 times a day and is unpredictable.  The following are photos of “Stokkur”, a smaller geysir located nearby, which erupts every few minutes.

The surrounding area is covered with little pockets of steam.
