Laki by normal 4WD

I'm going to Iceland next week. I'm renting normal 4WD (Suzuki Grand Vitara) from Budget. Is road to Laki craters (F206) are passable with such car? Anyone tried it?

Hi Helmis,

All roads marked with an F require a 4wd car. Suzuki Frand Vitara has been a very good car on these roads and I think you should be all right.

If you are still unsure, you can always check with the car rental.

You can check the road conditions at www.vegagerdin.is

Well, unless you are an experienced 4wd driver, with "river crossing" experience, I would not recommend a Suzuki G. Vitara. Go for the bigger and mor reliable Land Crusier or Land Rover.

There are two "could get big" rivers to cross, and wery unstable mobile phone signal. And then there is the issue of insurance in river crossing situations.
