Kerid Volcanic Crater, Iceland

The beautiful kaleidoscopic ring around the crater of Kerid has to be Iceland’s Most iconic Golden Circle Jem.  This memorizing sight leave visitors gazing mouth-open in silence.  Imagine the powerful explosion that created the enormous volcanic crater that is Kerid.  IMG_4554

Walk the craters rim and notice the scale of the eruption to produce such a large crater and the surrounding areas debris field. The otherworldly feeling of the Mars-like landscape has you marvel at the power of the volcanic potential the island reminds you that it is still capable of wielding. This site is worth spending a good hour if you have the time to hike down to the water edge and around the top of the rim. Otherwise you can take a quick stroll along the entrance edge and get your photos in a 15 minute drive-by safari if you need to save time.

  1. Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
