Geysir geothermal area – hikes
The Geysir geothermal area is among the more famous geothermal areas in Iceland. It is home to a world famous geyser, aptly named Geysir (the Great Geysir), that, during its glory days, would produce eruptions of 60 – 80 metres (186-262 ft.). Geysir has hardly erupted the last few decades. However, its neighbour Strokkur produces large eruptions every 10 – 15 minutes. A small, unpaved road goes from the geothermal area to the Haukadalur forestry (2 km / 1.2 mi), where you will find many remarkable hiking routes. A small trail winds its way through the forest and up to the edge of the highlands and is an ideal hike for those who wish to enjoy the peace and quiet of the rugged highlands while looking over mountains and glaciers
