One of the greatest natural attractions of Iceland and part of the famous “Golden Circle Tour” is the Great Geysir, or Stóri-Geysir. The Great Geysir was among the most notable geysers in the world, such as those in Yellowstone Park, New Zealand and North Iceland. The English word “geyser” is derived from the Icelandic word “geysir” which means gusher. The Great Geysir, which is mainly known for having lent his name to geysers all around the world, rarely erupts, his neighboring friend Strokkur is now the most known geysir in Iceland, he erupts every 4 – 10 min shooting boiling water 20 – 40 meters into the air. It is a spectacular sight to see.
