Driving on route# 35, we passed the Kerid crater lake which is located in the Grimsnes area in South Iceland.
Having parked the car in the car park, we paid the entrance fee of 400ISK and walked along the edge of the Caldera
The volcanic rock is red in colour, and was in a stark contrast with the frozen crater lake. The Caldera is approx. 55m deep and is marked by steep flanks.
From the carpark is a path towards the crater lake. The path follows the contours of the lesser sloped flank which is also the only one which shows some vegetation in this harsh climate.
The crater has been used for some concerts in the past, mainly due to it's fantastic accoustics. The most famous artist to have sang here is Bjork who in 1987 performed from a platform in the middle of the lake.
