instagramEast of Iceland's capital Reykjavik deep into the dark lava fields of the remote Nordic country there's a geological formation drawing Instagrammers across the world.
Derived from the Icelandic 'geysa' which means 'to gush', the steaming geothermal Haukadalur valley is home to a surprising natural phenomenon which creates erupting explosions of boiling water followed by white steam.
While there are a number of erupting geysers across the world it's Iceland's Geysir which draws the most attraction. The great Geysir is now inactive but its neighboring Strokkur still creates jets of water up to 50 meters high and erupts every few minutes, and the area is also home to hot pools and springs.
There is still some uncertainty a to what exactly causes the geysers to explode but it is commonly believed that due to the country's volcanic and geologically active state, high temperatures underground cause trapped boiling water to react with cool water above and burst to the surface.
