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.
Visited on our 1st day in Iceland and it continued to be a favourite stop even after 12 days of seeing sights. The climb to the top is all stairs - someone said 500! Just take your time - it is worth it. The view...More
The Grabrok is an impressive volcano. The climb is not too bad and you can take your time. Even though it is just a 20 minute climb halfway there is a bench for the tired. The walk around the view gives you a great view....More
Really nice place and beautiful views. Missed by many but worth stopping. There's a nice wooden stairs made right up to the crater and path around the rim. Few benches on the way up and at the top to sit down, perhaps rest and enjoy...More
This is OK for a stop. Accessible to walk and do a tour of the crater will take you 20 minutes. Some good views from the top. If you are lucky to have good weather. Very clean as well. Give it a try.
This crater is small, but beautiful. There are stairs from car park (not all the way up, but in the steepest places), so it is easily accessible even in rain. And it offers nice views all around, not only inside of the crater.
Another easy stop off the ring road. There are stairs leading up to the one crater (it is not too bad so if you have difficulty you can take it slow) and then a path so you can walk around the rim. There is another...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... 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.
