F66 – Kollafjarðarheiði
Kollafjarðarheiði between Kollafjörður bay, in the South, and Ísafjörður bay in the North of the Westfjords. 25 kms long, drive time about 3 hours. A very challenging road, with a few streams to cross. Epic lunar views along the way.
F586 – Haukadalsskarðsvegur
Haukadalsskarðsvegur takes you between Haukadalsvegur in Snæfellsnes and Staður in the North West. 35kms long, drive time of about 4 hours. This road is remote, with limited cell reception, and in poor shape with many potholes and ruts to navigate.
622 – Westfjords
A dangerous passage between Þingeyri and Fossdalur.
F570 – Jökulshálsvegur
Jökulshálsvegur runs between Ólafsvík and Arnarstapi, north and south of the Snæfellsnes peninsula. This road is 18kms long with a roughly 2 hour drive time. A challenging and steep drive which will take you up one of the highest routes in Iceland- to 658m (2,158ft) above sea level through Snæfellsjökull National Park, with some incredible scenery from the top.
F575 – Eysteinsdalsleið
Eysteinsdalsleið is barely mentioned online or marked by signage, but begins as a gravel road leading from Utnesvegur to Eyvindarhola Lava Cave and into Snæfellsjökull National Park behind Snæfellsjökull, a 700,000-year-old glacier-topped volcano. Klukkufoss and Snukkjufoss waterfalls are visible on this route. Bad cell coverage and little to no traffic along this route- caution advised.
F578 – Arnarvatnsvegur
A dangerous passage with deep river crossings. Do not use.
550 – Kaldidalur
Kaldidalur is not marked as an F-Road but most definitely should be. This is a 40km unpaved road which can be completed in about 4 hours. Stretching between Þingvellir and Husafell, this road continues to F578 towards the north of Iceland.
F338 – Skjaldbreiðarvegur
Skjaldbreiðarvegur is a 50km road from F550 toward F35 near Gullfoss. There are 2 river crossings on this route- they are usually shallow, but it is important to check the depth.
Road 337 – Hlöðuvallavegur – Þjófahraun
Deep river crossings. Do not use.
F735 – Þjófadalavegur
Þjófadalavegur runs east to west between Hveradallir hot springs to Þjófadalir. There is one river crossing that is usually shallow, but it is important to check the depth. The views along this route are beautiful and take you past mountains, glaciers, and rivers. At Hveradallir there are some facilities including a café and parking.
F347 – Kerlingafjallavegur
Kerlingarfjallavegur connects F35 to the famous Kerlingarfjöll mountains, through the center of Iceland. The lunar surroundings are worth the challenging drive which will take you to Gýgjarfoss waterfall nestled between two glaciers. There are two river crossings on this route, with one being quite shallow and the other one quite deep, especially after heavy rain. This route is most often ok, must use caution.
F249 – Þórsmerkurvegur
Deep river crossings. Do not use.
F261 – Emstruleið
Emstruleið is a very rugged road that is 37kms long through Þórsmörk toward South Fjallabak Nature reserve (Fjallabaksleið syðri) There are a few river crossings on this road, so it may not be possible to complete the entire route.
F210 – Fjallabaksleið syðri
Deep river crossings. Do not use.
F225 – Landmannaleið
Landmannaleið is a beautiful road to explore which is 41kms long and takes you from Landvegur toward North Fjallabak Nature reserve (Fjallabaksleið Nyrðri) in the South of Iceland. This road does have a few river crossings, which may mean you must turn back if the depth is higher than the creek level.
F228 – Veiðivatnaleið
Veiðivatnaleið is a Martian-like road that connects road F26 to Skalavatn Lake. This road is deserted most of the time and there are a few river crossings, which may mean you must turn back if the depth is higher than creek level.
F208 – Fjallabaksleið Nyrðri
Even though this route is labeled Green, it’s still a tricky route that can be in a very bad condition. It is, however, stunning in a lot of ways.
F233 – Álftavatnskrókur
Álftavatnskrókur is a 20kms long road that connects the North and South of Fjallabak Nature reserve in the South of Iceland. However, it does contain a serious river, so it’s not possible to complete the entire road. But driving up towards the river, and back, is well worth the trip in our opinion.
F206 – Lakavegur – Lakagígar
Lakagígar is 41kms long and takes around 3-4 hours to complete. An absolutely fantastic landscape, this road leads to Laki Crater in the Vatnajökull national park. The road does contain multiple rivers, which may mean you must turn back if the depth is higher than creek level.
F839 – Leirdalsheiðarvegur
Leirdalsheiðarvegur runs 27kms from Hvalvatnsfjörður to Grenivík in the north of Iceland. The road is rough and contains a few low-level streams/rivers, so it is important to check the depth. This road is completely deserted most of the time and cell networks can be patchy, so it is advised to travel in a convoy if possible.
F899 – Flateyjardalsvegur
Flateyjardalsvegur is a 34km long serious drive through Austurádalur valley. There are a few smell low-level streams/rivers, so it is important to check the depth. Steep in some parts.
F862 – Dettifoss
Dettifoss From Ring Road 1 to Dettifoss West Parking Lot is paved, but continuing north this road turns into an F-Road and requires a 4×4. No river crossings to worry about and this leads you toward Asbyrgi Canyon.
F35 – Kjölur
Kjölur is the most popular mountain route that takes you from Geysir on the Golden Circle, right through the middle of Iceland to the north.
F26 – Sprengisandsleið
Sprengisandsleið takes you through the center of Iceland, running 232kms between Hofsjökull and Vatnajökull glaciers via Sprengisandur. Parts of this road are covered by deep rivers, so it is important to check the depth. A long and challenging road, we advise against taking the full route. This road is extremely remote and in terrible shape, it is believed to be haunted and is subject to severe highland weather. No gas stations along this route.
F752 – Skagafjarðarleið
Skagafjarðarleið is 120kms long and links route F26 to Varmahlíð, in northern Iceland. There are some creeks and low-level rivers across this route, so it is important to check the depth. A rough and challenging road with almost no cell network. The road itself has large potholes and ruts, and the surrounding landscape is very harsh and remote.
F821 – Eyjafjarðarleið
Eyjafjarðarleið runs for 40kms from Laugarfell toward Akureyri. The drive is long and bumpy (40kms) but there are no rivers to cross. Driving through a lush green country valley, it makes for a very beautiful drive.
F881 – Dragaleið
Dragaleið is an 18km journey linking F26 with F821. This is the highest road in Iceland, reaching 944m (3,097ft) elevation. This is a road less traveled and with minimal cell coverage. No rivers to worry about, but the road is very bumpy and lunar.
F910 – Austurleið
Very deep river crossings. Do not use.
F88 – Öskjuleið
Öskjuleið, also known as Askja Road, is an 80km stretch toward Askja caldera. This is probably the most awe-inspiring F-Road in Iceland, and the landscape is like another planet. Peppered with volcanoes and mountains, volcanic crater lakes that you can swim in (Víti Crater Lake is 30c and safe for swimming) small rivers (passable at low tide) and an eerily black terrain covered in wildflowers. The Askja region is very special.
F905 – Arnardalsleið
Arnardalsleið is 60kms long and has some wide and shallow river crossings, taking you from F910 toward Möðrudalsleið in the East through ancient lava fields. The track is very bumpy, very muddy during rain, and has deep potholes and wide, shallow rivers to cross. – cell network is also minimal and it’s not a busy route.
F894 – Öskjuvatnsvegur
Öskjuvatnsvegur is only a short 8km drive but is in a terrible condition. The drive takes you from the car park at Vikraborgir to Dreki Mountain Huts on F910. Black lava landscapes dominate here, making the short drive very otherworldly.
F902 – Kverkfjallaleið
Kverkfjallaleið runs for 84kms between Kverkfjöll mountain and F905 in southeast Iceland. A very challenging and bumpy road, it takes you into a very remote and seldom visited part of Iceland, therefore cell network is non-existent. It is a long and twisting track between brown slopes, very reminiscent of being on Mars.
F903 – Hvannalindavegur
Hvannalindavegur is a challenging mostly soft-sand track located in the Eastern Region of Iceland. It links Vatnajökull Glacier from F910. This route is remote with no cell service and rarely passing traffic. It does have two significant river crossings over river Lindá and is littered with potholes and fords. It’s so remote, Google doesn’t even recognize it as a road.
F909 – Snæfellsleið
Snæfellsleið is an extremely challenging trail that leads 32kms from Vatnajökull glacier toward road 910. Considered one of the most extreme roads in Iceland. With deep potholes and ruts, as well as several deep river crossings, it means this road may not be possible to complete entirely, even for modified super jeeps.
F946 – Loðmundarfjarðarvegur
Loðmundarfjarðarvegur is just under 38kms long and leads from Borgarfjörður Eystri to Klyppsstaðir, via Húsavík in the east (N.B. there are two places named Húsavík in Iceland, the other located in the north) An incredibly scenic drive with incredible geologic formations to look out for. Extreme heights in some locations. The road ends, so account for the 2-hour drive back when you head out. One of the more famous routes, and one of the most deserted.
F980 – Kollmúluvegur
Very deep rivers. Do not use.
F985 – Jökulvegur
Jökulvegur is a beautiful 17km track alongside Skálafellsjökull. It offers amazing views and no river crossings; however, the road is quite bumpy and extremely steep in places. This glacier is a popular film location with many Hollywood movies such as James Bond and Game Of Thrones being filmed here.
