Getting There & Away

Follow Rte 874 about 20km north of Rte 85 to reach Raufarhöfn, or take the rough but magnificent Rte 870 around the wildlife-rich flatlands of Melrakkaslétta from Kópasker (check locally on the condition of Rte 870 before setting off in a 2WD).

In summer 2018, bus services to this area were cut. Check www.bus.is and www.publictransport.is to see the latest news.
