Bob Murray has it right. There will be no transparency or control over any money raised through charging, and most likely it will get used to build bigger chrome-plated souvenir shops selling more Chinese made stuffed puffins and lopapeysa sweaters.
The suggestion that Geysir needs improving is a no-brainer. What might get ‘improved’ are larger car parks to hold even more vehicles bringing more paying tourists.
The idea that the tourist should part with more money to cross the road to get closer to Strokkur, after spending 10,000+ ISK in the cafe and shop is an insult. The financial turnover as it exists must be many millions of krónur a year, so where does that money go?
