Few countries have a landscape as otherworldly as Iceland's. Here, geothermal activity has resulted in countless hot springs and it generates nearly one-third of the country's electricity. Another example of this extraordinary facet of Iceland can be seen at Geysir. This is the geyser that gave all other geysers their name. These days, however, it is rarely active. Fortunately there is another geyser nearby, Strokkur, that sends steaming water some 130 feet into the air every five to ten minutes. That spectacle helps make it one of the most visited attractions in this part of Iceland. Explorations's itinerary also includes the nearby Gullfoss Waterfall, a majestic cascade with a height of roughly 100 feet.
On Exploration’s Icelandic Adventures itinerary, you’ll see these and many of Iceland’s other landmarks and natural wonders, as well as having time to explore its lively and charming capital, Reykjavik.
