Trip to Askja

I wonder if you could tell me whether the following is a reasonable plan for one day:

Leave Egilsstadir in the morning to Askja, in a Jeep, by road 1 then roads 923 and F910 to Askja. Visit Oskjuvatn and Viti lakes, the Black Canyon (?) and a hidden fall (?). Then to Myvatn by F910 and F88.

Would appreciate your advice. Are these roads paved or gravel?

Thanks,

Ben

Route 1 is paved in the area you mention, 923 is gravel and the ones marked with "F" are tracks, not roads and can, in places, be very slow driving.

Thanks. Does the whole plan seem reasonable for 1 day?

What time of the year? Do remember there are rivers to cross, you need to know what you are doing. We did Myvatn to Askja return and it took 12 hours by coach. It's slow in parts. It's about a 40 min walk to the Viti crater.

Have a good trip
