For us, this is a no-to-be-missed attraction. It consists of a moon-like landscape of extinct crater domes, including one volcano the rim of which you can walk round on beautifully maintained wooden walkways. It is fascinating to examine the plants struggling for existence on this...More
One of the best-maintained volcano hiking spots we visited. Good views into the craters and over the surrounding lava fields. Fairly easy hike, with convenient parking and nice information board. A nice place for a quick stop to stretch your legs and get a good...More
This is a nice stop for a quick walk. Nice trails, beautiful view. While we were stopped here, it was rather windy with mixed ice and snow - still worth the visit. The starkness of the weather was quite a contrast to the various greens...More
Stopped here on our drive along the Ring Road while in Iceland. Good walking path with a portion being on a footpath and a good portion climbing steps. The step climb is light-moderate strenuous if you are in somewhat good shape. The views at the...More
Hate to pass up a chance to climb and have a view of the area. This is an easy climb with steps available and seats half way up. You can see the little crater as well once you are up there, but you can't climb...More
We had a brief stop at Grábrókarhraun, a rough lava field covered with moss and birch growth. We were able to climb up the numerous staircases to view Grábrók Crater. It doesn't take long, but I'd recommend a stop to check out the view.
Interesting set of craters/volcanoes right next to the ring road. It has wooden steps going up one of the craters, and I can see why some people don’t like them but it does make it accessible. The main crater is well worth a look and...More
What a great way to begin your Ring Road Adventure. Although it's only a tiny taste of what's to come, it's a worthwhile stop on your way north on the west side of Iceland. It has stairs all the way up and an easy walking...More
We found the visit to the Grabrok crater slightly disappointing, because the fun of walking up to the edge is basically taken away by the wooden path/stairs up to the edge. Still there are some nice views to be had on the top.

If you had experience with a crater, don't bother, its an ordinary crater with no water. Otherwise its worthwhile to see if you had never seen a crater before. But be very careful in Iceland especially in winter. The... More
If you had experience with a crater, don't bother, its an ordinary crater with no water. Otherwise its worthwhile to see if you had never seen a crater before. But be very careful in Iceland especially in winter. The staircase might be wet and icy, as most scenic places had no fence or guard, precaution is important because not too many people around.
