Geysir Links:Geysir - wikipedia
from site: Geysir (sometimes known as The Great Geysir), in the Haukadalur valley, Iceland, is the first geyser ever described in a printed source and the earliest geyser known to Europeans.[citation needed] The English word geyser (a spouting hot spring) derives from Geysir. The name Geysir itself is derived from the Icelandic verb geysa, to gush, the verb from Old Norse.
Geysir on exploreiceland.is
from site:One of the greatest natural attractions of Iceland, The Great Geysir, or Stori-Geysir, has been dormant since 1916 when it suddenly ceased to spout. It came to life only once in 1935, and as quickly went back to sleep. Since then its repose has sporadically been disturbed by the dumping of tonnes of carbolic soap powder into its seething orifice in order to tickle it to spout.
