Strokkur Geyser, Iceland

Strokkur is a fountain geyser in the geothermal area beside the Hvítá River in Iceland in the southwest part of the country; it is located near the capital Reykjavik, Strokkur one of the most famous active iceland geyser and European country. Its name comes from the Icelandic word churn, "milk." It often erupts every five to eight minutes, which has become attractive tourism in Iceland. The average height of each eruption fluctuates between 15-20 meters, although there have been sometimes when it has reached 40 meters in height.

Strokkur one of the most famous and active geysers of iceland


Strokkur Geyser was first mentioned in 1789 after an earthquake unblocked the conduit of the geyser. Its activity fluctuated in the 19th century; in 1815, its height was estimated to be 60 meters. It continued to erupt until the turn of the 20th century when another earthquake blocked the conduit again. In 1963 a 40-meter deep hole was drilled from the bottom of its basin, after which it has spouted or at least squirted merrily ever since. Discharge from the spring, or rather from the borehole, is currently 2.5 l/s. And the geyser in iceland has been regularly erupting ever since. This action successfully brought Strokkur back to life, and its eruptions are now very reliable.
