Getting There & Away

While Höfn- and Skaftafell-bound buses pass through the Mýrdalssandur area, they usually don't stop; check with the Strætó bus company to see if allowances can be made. Alternatively, around 13km east of Vik, take the turning on the right and it's 1km south off the Ring Road (Rte 1) by car; 4WDs are recommended as the road can get sandy.
