About this deal

You can be completely assured that nothing we pass to Sage Pay’s servers can be examined, used or modified by any third parties attempting to gain access to sensitive information. Jokuldalsvegur connects road 923 with F907 and stretches along the entire length of Studlagil canyon.

We did this trip at the end of September and some parts of the road were already covered by quite a bit of snow. It’s scenic of course because you’re near Landmannalaugar, which is one of the most picturesque Icelandic places.Alternatively, you may just drive very slowly to take care and not damage the undercarriage of your car. Although it’s possible to drive the road in good weather in a medium-sized 4×4 vehicle, we do recommend taking a large 4×4 car. However, I consider myself a faster driver and we’ve encountered many drivers driving much more slowly and carefully than me and, in this case, naturally, your journey will take longer. Except for that, it’s a beautiful moon-like road and one of the only 2 roads that will get you to Thorsmork, which is a beautiful mountainous area. When Road 214 is open in summer, you officially do not need any special car to drive it, any 2wd car should be sufficient.

Feel also free to read how to choose a proper car or how to pick the best Icelandic car rental insurance. We drove F946 in a super jeep and utilized our discounts for Icelandic super jeeps and large 4×4 cars. Emstrur track also leads to the best (eastern) viewpoint of an amazingly beautiful Markarfljótsgljúfur Canyon. Even with super-jeep, it’s very important to not do something stupid and strictly adhere to river crossing guidelines. We were more than happy, however, to have our big Land Cruiser with enough ground clearance and enough horsepower in case of a car got stuck or in case of meeting another car.

Hi Simon, this really depends on the toughness of winter and amount of snow at that time on the road. If you are afraid of mountain driving, don’t recommend it, though 🙂 It even has a small unbridged stream. Bear in mind though, you’re gonna be probably continuing on the more difficult roads like F910 where medium-sized river crossings are present. They are mostly small to medium-sized river crossings doable even if you are not highly experienced.

Yes, obviously Google Maps have it messed up, the correct road marking is displayed on https://vegasja. Hi, some of the F-roads, especially in the central Iceland and northeast are already closed as can be observed on http://www. That map seems to show clearly where the Highland huts are which will help out greatly for our trip (via bicycle). If you are interested in specific details about each river crossing on F208 South, reach out for our Day 3 journey blog post. If an old date appears on a map the most likely reason is that an old map has been cached on the user's computer or a computer it is communicating with.For the final part leading to Hveradalir, I recommend at least a medium-sized SUV with enough ground clearance. Austurleið by lake Þríhyrningsvatn didn’t contain any serious river crossings, just small rivers and small ponds of depth 20-30cm at max. This way you can really select where you want to go, how long you want to spend at a location and you can stop whenever you are in love with the scenery.

I also recommend to ask someone local before going on the opinion on the current road conditions (whether it rained too much or not).Vikraborgir car park, the closest point available on your route towards Askja/Víti crater What car do I need for F894? Please also note that we are legally required to declare the correct value of your purchase which is used to calculate the tax and any tariff duty. Austurleid is a secluded F-road with all of the characteristics of any other general F-road – not well paved, not well maintained, potholes, gravel, but no serious river crossings. Drive this part slowly and carefully, as it’s wide enough only for one car – having a cliff on the left and a steep drop down on the right.
