Trash hunting around stunning Kerið crater
Trash hunting around stunning Kerið crater is always a good idea. Especially in Animal rights hoodie!
This striking volcanic crater lake filled with milky blue-green water is a popular Golden Circle route stop.
In the past, volcanologists categorized Kerið as an ‘explosion crater’, believing the crater was formed in an explosive eruption.
However, today most scientists believe that Kerið was once a cone-shaped volcano which erupted and exhausted its magma reserve.
At some time in the hundreds of years following the collapse, the Kerið crater filled with water. It is believed that this crater lake is formed by groundwater. Water held underground in the soil or rock, and not by rainfall.
We like to hike around the crater and enjoy the spectacular view. Do you?
