This fantastic dome–shaped, glass building was designed by Ingimundur Sveinsson and is supported by six massive hot-water tanks - each with a capacity of 4 million litres.
The dome houses an observation platform offering panoramic views of the city and its surroundings.
For those who don’t have time to visit the real Geysir, there’s a man-made version outside the building (to the left of the car park) named Strokkur, which imitates the natural spouting action of Geysir in south-west Iceland.
A nature paradise complete with icecap, glaciers, geysers, volcanoes, and waterfalls, the climate is surprisingly mild (considering its northerly latitude) thanks to the Gulf Stream. Iceland boasts a modern infrastructure – in fact, it’s just over 300,000 residents enjoy what is one of the most developed and egalitarian societies on the planet, where most of the energy is provided by renewable sources and virtually all of the electricity is generated from hydropower and geothermal energy.
