28 May 2017 - Iceland Day 3: Crater Kerið

Kerið is a volcanic crater lake along Iceland's Golden Circle.
It is one of the crater lakes that has the most visually recognizable caldera still intact. The caldera itself is approximately 55 m (180 ft) deep, 170 m (560 ft) wide, and 270 m (890 ft) across. The volcano was created about 3000 years ago and is an explosion crater. The Kerið crater is part of a crater complex Tjarnarhólar.
After paying an entrance of ISK400 at the ticket office (below), we were allowed to walk down a gentle slope right to the crater lake. The depth of the water varies between 7 and 14 m. Due to minerals from the soil, the lake is an opaque and strikingly vivid aquamarine.
Fortunately, it was not raining at that time and we were able to snap some wefies.  This is a great stop to enjoy one of the many stunning landscapes in Iceland.
