Next stop is Kerið. It is one of Iceland’s greatest natural wonders. In minor summary the Kerið can be described like this; “Iceland has many scars caused by fire and brimstone.

Oddly though, most of those scars are beautiful. Even the moss-covered magma rock has some magical charm. The fire has sculpted many places, which are unforgettable when looked upon. Kerið in Grímsnes is one of those places with magnificent colors, resting in green hills so close to the highway”

There will be a 30 minute stop at Kerið. It is recommended to sit down at Kerið and enjoy.
