The Geysir thermal area, containing Iceland's largest geysers, lies in the Haukadalur basin, just east of the southern end of the extensive Oddnyjarhnjukur-Langjokull volcanic system. Here a geyser can be seen ejecting water and steam to about 20 m high. Photo by Bill Rose, 1975 (Michigan Technological University).
