We enjoyed a walk around the top and down to the bottom. At 10:00 pm with lots of light, birds twittering, and no crowds at that hour.

Nice place for a hike. The view is great, but it's not a place where you spend more than an hour. Do some online research beforehand.. You'll learn about some fun facts that make your visit more interesting.

The crater was covered in snow and ice when we got there but wow, it’s absolutely incredible. We visited as part of a tour and had 30 mins here. We walked around the top of the crater and took in all the views, which are absolutely sensational. Not often that you can circumnavigate a volcano crater!

Quick stop of the road for an excellent view and a unique place. After visiting all the remote sights this was a nice change of pace. Well maintained paths.

A quick stop along our drive, but Google Maps did not do a great job of getting us there so be careful! Small fee of 400 ISK ($3 USD per person), which I think is worth it. Parking is free. This is an easy hike with some elevation and a straight drop down from the trail to the crater, so beware if you are afraid of heights. There is a paved trail with stairs leading directly to the crater water.

It is located next to the main road. Parking is free. Entrance fee is 400 ISK per person. The crater is virtually right beyond the entrance. Walking round the rim takes perhaps 15-20 minutes. There is a well structured trail leading to the water of the crater. Very good place for picnic too.

We somehow find this crater, sign on the roads are catastrophic, but when we get there everything seems much better. There is a fee for entering this attraction, but path around, inside and above :), crater are very good. Site from above is amazing, and from inside... no comment. Definitely, must see attraction.

Not particularly exceptional but worth a visit if you’re nearby. You can walk all around the top of the crater and down to the water’s edge if you want. Free parking but you pay to enter. No toilet facilities on site, which would have been useful.
