I'm planning a trip to Iceland in July, and I have a question about driving in Jökulsárgljúfur NP.
Does anyone know if regular (2WD) cars can go all the way from Road 1 (Ring road) to Asbyrgi on the 862 road (left side of the canyon)?
Information available are all very confusing, some of them mentioning that the road 862 is 2WD passable from Asbyrgi to Detiffoss, and only 4x4 passable south of Dettifoss (F862).
I've also read about the recent opening of a new road between Road 1 and Dettifoss, but I am not sure if this new road is also connected to the north section of 862 road which is 2WD passable?
Has anyone done this left-of-the canyon route (Road 1 – Dettifoss – Asbyrgi) recently in a regular car?
Many thanks in advance!
