Welcome to Eastern Highlands


Work on the controversial Kárahnjúkar dam and Fljótsdalur hydroelectric power plant brought improved roads around Snæfell, with the paved Rte 910 from Fljótsdalur being the best way up. Along Rte 910, watch for wild reindeer, and bring your swimsuit to stop at the hot springs of Laugarfell. If you want to tour the area with someone else behind the wheel, check offerings from companies such as Egilsstaðir-based Jeep Tours.
