Haukadalur Valley (Selfoss)

Selfoss.

Haukadalur Valley lies in the south of the country, to the north of Lake Laugarvatn and is situated in the Golden Ring of Iceland. There are many geysers in the valley. The most famous of them is Geysir (sometimes known as The Great Geysir) itself, which gave other hot springs of the planet its name. Geysir stopped erupting in the beginning of the 20th century. However, after the earthquake in 2000 the geyser sent hot water up to 70 metres in the air but not as often as before. The geyser shoots up to 70 metres every other day.

It is also there where one of the most regularly erupting geysers "Strokkur" is situated. It spouts out a column of vapour and hot water at a height of 20 to 30 metres (65 to 98 feet) every 5 to 10 minutes. Strokkur and the nearby hot springs are the most frequently visited tourist sites in Iceland. Almost all geysers in the valley regularly erupt: some of them erupt every 15 minutes, the others do it every few days, and some geysers always boil. The zones that can be flooded with boiling water are fenced. However, it is not prohibited to go beyond the fence; it is supposed that the tourists coming to Iceland have enough common sense not to do this.

There are also a lot of thermal lakes that do not erupt but have underwater fountains. The sky-blue Blesi is the most remarkable hot lake of the valley.
