Here is exactly what it looks like to stand beside an exploding geyser in Iceland.
This is the amazing ‘Strokkur’ geyser in Iceland. A very active fountain geyser that goes off every 4-8 minutes. Except in this video as you’ll see a lot more activity than normal.
People travel from all over the world to see this magnificent geyser and surrounding geothermal activity .
The cameras were setup in the non-waterproof freedom360 rig. Luckily due to wind direction the hot water landed well clear of the camera rig, except on us unsuspecting on lookers.
To get the true impact of this video watch it using your smartphone on a Virtual Reality headset - from Google Cardboard, Samsung Gear VR or else an Oculus Rift.
