Opening of Mountain Roads

Opening of Mountain Roads
Trying to drive closed roads can both be dangerous and costly.

Many mountain roads are still closed because of snow and muddy conditions, which makes them impassable.

The Icelandic Road And Coastal Administration publishes a weekly map with information on mountain road conditions. It is important that travelers take notice of these maps and do not try to access closed roads.

When mountain roads are opened for traffic most of them can only be negotiated by four-wheel-drive vehicles. For some mountain tracks it is strongly advised that two or more cars travel together. Check road conditions with a tourist information office or the IRCA website.
