Really nice trail for basic and experienced hikers alike. But wear proper gear. Boots, prepare for wind and hiking poles are helpful climbing the scree. We had gloves and hats in July and were happy to have them. The base of the crater is at 950’ and the rim is 1640’. That 650’ climb covers .25 miles up volcanic scree and sand. This is the only challenging part (but don’t underestimate how hard it is, every step forward is a little slide back. The rim is almost exactly 2 mi. in circumference - great walk around the edge with a bit of elevation gain and loss as you go around. The total miles are closer to 5.7 when you include the small loop in Dimmuborgir (I recommend). Better hike than we expected with great views across the caldera toward the thermal springs.
