Volcanic craters are everywhere, but this one is easy to access and get right inside, safely! You can walk round the rim or round the late at the bottom. Walking shoes advisable as the lava is rough. Can be a little windy as it is...More

Very pleasant spot to visit. A nice walk, very photogenic. It is worth walking down into the crater and anyone of even moderate fitness (required for Iceland anyway) will find it a nice stroll.

We stopped at Kerid Crater despite the rain. There is a small entrance fee to get in. It was easy to walk down to the bottom of the crater where we walked around the pool of water. Very pretty crater with the colors and water!

This crater is really interesting is literally right off of route 35 just north of Selfoss. We actually visited after doing the golden circle sights of Pingvellier, Geysir and Gullfoss. This is about as easy to get to as can be. The only issue we...More

The view on the lake and the walk around the crater are pretty nice. The morning must be the best moment to go there during summer.

We stopped here on our way back to Reykjavik from Vik. It is neat because it's a crater and because of the colors of the rocks and dirt but otherwise not as impressive as the other stops along the Golden Circle. There is a large...More

I enjoyed this stop on our Circle Tour. There was a small admission but I imagine that keeps it from being overcrowded. We were there in the afternoon and the view was really breathtaking. It was interesting to walk inside a volcanic crater.

This place is amazing. There are so many colors of rocks there. This is not a difficult walk around the crater. Definitely recommend this stop.

Hello. The crater is part of the golden circle route, the first time I did a coach tour & last time I went by car, the advantage of having a car is you can stop as long as you like, although the tours are really good too. We... More

In this time of the year, there is daylight until 22pm, so you can see it anytime until that hour. But since is so close to Reykjavik, go about 17pm, there should not be there many people and you can do perfect pictures.
