Lakes In Iceland

Kerid Crater Lake, Iceland

Iceland is famous for its crater lakes, but one of the most visited and attractive is Kerid. You wont want to park your motorhome too close as it is a volcanic crater lake. It’s located in the Grímsnes area in south Iceland. Like many of Iceland’s attractions, it’s a pretty surreal sight. The lake itself has a brilliant aquamarine colour and the surrounding steep barren walls gives it an almost lunar-esque feel.
