Great Geysir is a gayser of the famous Golden Circle in Iceland, and one of the biggest natural landmarks of the country. It used to hurl a spectacular spurt of hot water up to 80 metres in the air. Unfortunately, it has been inactive for many decades now.

Strokkur geyser is has become the main attraction of the area, located around 100 metres south of Great Geysir. It erupts approximately every 10 minutes, impressing visitors with a white pillar of boiling water which it hurls up to 30 metres into the air.
