Now that's good Icelandic water!
Lúðvík and Margrét's small and big summer houses are in southern Iceland near Hekla. Lúðvík built both houses in Reykjavík and moved them to the countryside.
Geysir, the gushing hot spring from which the term "geyser" originates, is in southwest Iceland. However, Geysir is no longer very active. Every now and then soap is used to cause an eruption of about 200 ft.
(61 m).

Just beside Geysir is Strokkur (Icelandic for "butter churn"), which is much more active but not as spectacular.

Gullfoss ("Golden Falls") in southwest Iceland is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country. At Gullfoss, the Hvítá ("White River") falls in two stages, first about 36 ft. (11 m) then about 70 ft. (21 m), before plunging into a crevice that's 105 ft. (32 m) deep.
