Our hotel recommended that we stop at the crater as a part of our Golden Circle tour. It's absolutely worth it. It only takes a few minutes - it's right on the road and the path from the parking lot is very short. It's dramatic and different from everything else we saw on the Golden Circle. There is a very small entrance fee, although the kiosk was closed when we arrived and there was not an after hours box to leave money. We would have gladly paid.

Visited as part of our own Golden Circle tour in our rental car, which I recommend as all the stops are very easy to find and you can actually add more on which some tours miss off. The colours are so vivid here with many different colour rocks mixed with the blue of the frozen water. Made more wonderful by snow that just came out of nowhere.

We liked the view from the crater, both over the crater and the surroundings. Unfortunately it was March, there was some snow, so we couldn't appreciate the colours of the water and the land.

Worth a quick stop to see a volcanic crater up and close, with a small lake at the bottom. it's easy to miss!

Compared to the Gulfoss and The Geysers, this site is fairly underdeveloped and yet they charge a fee to access the crater and its lake which kind of makes you wonder where the money is going. This crater is unique in that it is one that you can actually walk down to and around the lake edge however the path down and up and certain points around the lake are very treacherous. So if you have balance issues or clumsy footed in genral I would not recommend you walking down. On the plus site the colours are beautiful and vivid and if you are brave enough to go down they do provide you with a picnic chair.
