Kerið

View Photos

A magnificent crater within the Golden Circle

Kerið is an exquisite crater not far outside of the classic Golden Circle route that is a must-see for anybody to explore on their way out of Reykjavík. The 55 metre deep crater is 3000 years old, and is part of the larger Tjarnarhólar area, a collection of crater-hills.

You’ll notice upon walking up to its rim that Kerið has a lake in its bowl. The story goes that when the water level rises in Kerið, it falls an equal amount in the small lake on the mountain Búrfell in the Grímsnes district, and vice versa. It’s like some mystical seesaw!

Kerið is a protected natural site. A small parking lot is adjascent to the crater off Route 35, and marked footpaths guide visitors to its rim.
