Kerris Crater Lake is located in the south of Reykjavik. It was formed 6,500 years ago. It is a lake formed by volcanic eruption. The water of ice and snow gathers into green lakes. It may erupt again one day. The story and history of the earth is so legendary.
This crater is unique for its lake formation. Near Silfoss, you can walk around the crater and then go down to the lake to walk around the water. This crater is in contrast to Hervfjall's huge extinct crater, which is still desolate, surrounded by trees, forests and vegetation.
The volcanic crater is characterised by water. When the weather is good, the water surface is a mirror. It can walk around the crater or go down to the water. It's a little slippery.
The promotional pages were taken in the summer, and they look good. It's another sight that water freezes in winter. It is suggested to go around and see the crater lake from different angles. It's more spectacular to shoot with an aerial camera.
Iceland is the only natural attractions in Iceland to collect tickets, 3 Euros per person, the purpose of tickets is to protect the natural landscape of the crater lake, may be maintenance fees and so on. The crater is actually a circle along the edge of the bowl. Seems like it is not big, walk a lot, the soil here is red, scattered with summer moss and weeds, in the middle of a blue lake.
The legendary Big Blue Bowl, the so-called Big Blue Bowl, is actually a volcanic lake, because of its special geology and metal content in the soil, making the lake extremely blue. But it's not very big.
This crater lake is quite beautiful. Especially the red land sets off a fresh and full sense of vitality that is about to erupt. The volcanic lake was formed about 6,500 years ago and has a depth of 7 to 14 meters. You can walk around the crater, or you can walk under the crater, to the lake side of the crater.
In spring, the lake is blue, graceful, quiet and deep. In winter, the lake is surrounded by volcanoes covered with snow, such as a fairy tale world of ice and snow. Under the night sky, the stars and rivers twinkle, for a moment, forget themselves.
The lake of Zhanlan, a volcanic lake, is comparable to the Tianchi Lake on earth.
The crater lake is completely different in style. It's close to home and has a good view. The same thing is walking and changing scenery. It's beautiful everywhere.
