Volcano climbing

Shortly before reaching the village Bifröst on the ring road of Iceland you’ll see the high Grábrók crater next to the road. It is an excellent opportunity for a rest as the former volcano is part of a nature protection zone and nice wooden steps lead you up into the crater. Well, it is a bit painful but it looks more horrible than it really is – and the views on the area are beautiful from up there.

Once you’ve reached the caldera you can still go further on and do the full round course on the rim of the volcano. The parking area can be found easily and there is also a picnic table and some information about the region available. For a longer stop I would rather continue a few meters and have a break at the Glanni waterfall.
