Bifrost, Iceland: Grabrok Crater

This ranks rather high on anyone's cool attractions list. How often do you get to walk around the rim of a dormant fissure volcano?

Bifrost offers that chance. Grabok is only a few thousand years old, and hasn't blown its top in a while. After a climb of some stairs - not too bad - you reach the top. There you can stroll around the rim and see the countryside, which includes a couple of other small volcanoes of the same type. It's maybe a quarter-mile around, perhaps a little more.

Someone's drone allows us to take a look at the area from above:

Grabok is located just off the Ring Road (Highway 1) on the West Coast of Iceland. Definitely, this is worth a stop.
