Earth's Spectacular Sprinkler System

The product of subterranean volcanic activity, geysers are a unique form of hot spring that intermittently discharge spurts of water, (and often steam as well) high into the air.

Though only around 1000 geysers remain worldwide, they can be found in large numbers in specific areas of the US, New Zealand, Chile, Iceland and Eurasia, and witnessing an eruption is a truly unique, and spectacular experience!

Our Pick

Old Faithful - USA

Wyoming’s spectacular Yellowstone National Park, boasts some of the most striking scenery in all of the USA, encompassing soaring mountain peaks, breathtaking canyons, endless evergreen forests, waterfalls and incredibly, over half of the world’s geysers! Perhaps the most famous geyser on the planet, as well as the park’s main attraction, Old Faithful was given its name due to the regularity with which it erupts, which happens around 20 times per day and often reaches as high as 180 feet!
