Kerid volcanic crater
Kerið is a volcanic crater lake located in the Grímsnes area in the southern part of Iceland. Kerið crater is approximately 3,000 years old which is roughly half the age of most volcanic calderas in Iceland. It is possible to take a path right up to the lake and walk around it to take in the true beauty of this crystal clear lake.
This picturesque waterfall faces the traffic heading along the Ring road of Iceland. It's narrow and falls off a cliff above a cavern. It's quite easy to walk up to the base of the waterfall and behind it along a pathway inside the cavern.
This mighty waterfall is one of Icelands biggest waterfalls towering 60 meters high (197 ft.) and 25 meters (82 ft.) wide. By the waterfall you can visit Skogar folk museum to get a better insight into the life of Icelanders throughout history in the southern region.
