The last part of the road to Landmannalaugar is crazy beautiful with all this colorful sand you drive through. This is one of the views just before you drive down into the valley between the mountains.

Travel information

Depending on where you come from there are a lot of different ways to get to the valley of Landmannalaugar, but what you need in any case is a 4x4 vehicle, because the road is mostly not that easy to drive than this last part of the journey. The F208 is pretty easy to drive, but this one is also very slow because of big rocks on the road, so drive carefully and don't underestimate the time to drive that road... it's longer than it seems, but it's worth the effort for sure!
There is another road from the west you can use when you come from the 26, which is in my opinion much more beautiful, but it's very important that you have a bigger 4x4 for that because you need to get through many rivers and some of them are pretty deep, which varies a lot based on how much it rained or the season itself.
