The Highlands

In the middle ages the icelandic people took the Kjölur Route or Sprengisandur Route to cross the highlands from the north to the south. These passages always had been a bold venture.

Today, for secure navigation through the Highlands of Iceland it is necessary to have a 4-wheel drive vehicle as in the highlands are usually narrow gravel roads. But what you find in this isolated landscape is very impressively. The main attractions are Hveravellir and Kerlingafjöll in the central highlands, Landmannalaugar and Thórsmrk in the South as well as Herðubreið, the Asjka caldera and Kverkfjöll in the eastern part of the highlands.
