F-Roads
Save

Hello!

I am going to visit Iceland 19-25 of January.

I have been looking for the information about F-Roads, but I haven't succeed.

Can you help me? I need a list of F-roads, because all the maps I have seen don't give such information. It is very important for me.

Hi,

Most of the F-Roads are closed at this time of year.

Here is a web page from the Icelanduc Road Administration:

Thank You very much for Your answer.

Am I right, that I can use a non-4x4 car only on green roads on this map?

Hi,

Green means ok for driving and yes, you don't have to use 4x4 on theese roads. In winter time I recommend a 4x4 because it can be slippery from time to time.

Kind regards,

I think you may be misunderstanding this map. Here's a English version http://www.vegagerdin.is/english/road-conditions-and-weather/the-entire-country/island1e.html

It's a dynamic map of road conditions, continually updated. A regular vehicle fitted with winter tyres should be able to pass all roads except possibly those shown as "difficult" or "impassable".

"F" roads are mountain roads, generally closed at this time of year, and off-limits to all non-4x4 rental vehicles, where the insurance is invalid.

You can see F-roads here http://www.heimur.is/heimur/upload/files/kort/kort-island-2010-back.pdf
