Geysir Area Landowners “Could Block Access”

So, the land owners near the Geysir site are threatening to stop people visiting the area....A classic example of 'shooting yourself in the foot' me thinks. No people visiting the geysir means no people staying at the hotel, no people buying over-priced knitwear and stuffed puffins in the shop, no people buying fuel at the filling station, no people eating in the cafe and no people staying at the camp site....Oh yes, it's a really good idea. Blackmail threats rarely produce a good result for anyone, and invariably alienate the different factions.
