The crater was OK, first time we had to pay 400 each, we have not been so amazed. To be fair it was a rainy day

We visited Kerid on our last day in Iceland and had seen some pretty spectacular places the days before. Kerid is also very impressive but probably not as stunning as gullfoss, geysir etc. If doing the tour of the golden circle stop here first ,...More

This is not an explosion crater, but was formed from a collapse. The water surface rises and falls according to the water table. The colors around the crater give you an idea of how different this is from the black lava toward the east.

We were driving back from Gulfs and saw a small group of people on a ridge. We stopped and discovered that the ridge was the rim of an extinct volcano. We walked around the entire rim looking down into the multi colored walls of the...More

Well worth a stop off if you are on the golden circle. A natural crater which has filled with water. Colourful, tranquil and a real natural wonder.

It's a nice hike around the crater and good views above and down low. A bit pricey to get in but you should still stop.

Definitely a beautiful spot to check out but also such a great example of the effects of plate tectonics if you are into the science of it all too. Such a closely compact row of craters all stretched together. The funny thing is; people didn't...More
