Travel video about destination Strokkur Geysir. Along the geothermal zone of the Hvita River around eighty kilometres from Iceland's capital of Reykjavik, the great Strokkur Geyser that is located in the south western section of the island attracts much interest. At first glance the waters of the Strokkur Geyser appear benign, only steam and gurgling water indicate its slumbering, subterranean power. The first signs of an imminent eruption are indicated by small ripples in the water that grow increasingly active. Soon a thirty metre high jet of water shoots up into the sky, an amazing fountain of steam and boiling water. In 1928 the first houses in Reykjavik were heated by geothermal energy. Since then the harnessing of this natural source of energy has been exploited to the full and now almost the whole of Reykjavik is powered by geothermal energy.With its sparse and unique landscape Iceland has managwww.youtube.com/uploaded to retain its fascinating natural splendour right up to the present day and its remarkable geysers are one of the world's most spectacular natural phenomena.
