Getting There & Away

Sealed Rte 869 ends just north of Þórshöfn. The rutted track continues 50km along the Langanes peninsula, and although it’s possible to continue to the tip at Fontur lighthouse in a 4WD, parts of the road can be difficult to navigate.

If you don’t have your own vehicle, you can arrange a transfer to Ytra Lón Farm Lodge from Þórshöfn (for a fee).
