Had to pay for parking. Easy walk around the top of the crater beautiful views! There was a walkway down to the water which was steep and slippery but offered a great alternative view!

We visited this interesting place with kids and everybody liked this crater. Different place, for us mandatory to visit if we are in Iceland. Not so expensive, a quite place, not so many tourists. Interesting place if you appreciate nature.

As a native icelandic, i find it to be an absolute disgrace that you can actually charge money to see kerid. This country has become som greedy and overcharging everyone both tourists and locals. And to actually charge to see a hole with water is...More

We visited as part of a Golden Circle tour. Arriving at sunrise it was both eerie and beautiful. Do take the time to hike down to the shore of the crater; you get a different yet equally beautiful experience.

Volcanic crater where you can walk around the circumference and down into the crater. Not a difficult walk. It’s the only thing we paid in to see in the entire stay at 400 krona each - worth the visit though.

Parking is free, but there's admission for the place itself. It's quick to check the place, have a walk around it. If you're close by go and check it.

Depending what time of year you are going, it could be too dark to see much. Kerid is on private property and is open to the public for a fee. I would respect that and only visit during their hours. Visit their Facebook... More
