Kjalvegur (officially known as Route 35) is a highland road in Iceland, with a length of 168 km (104 mi), crossing Kjölur, a plateau in the highlands of Iceland, at an elevation of about 600–700 metres, from north to south.
This infamous road begins in the south of Iceland near Haukadalur and behind the Gullfoss waterfall, and ends in the north near Blönduós. It takes about 5 hours to traverse by car.
It's a corrugated and tuff gravel road open for all kind of vehicles in summer time. The road traverses the interior between two glaciers, Langjökull and Hofsjökull. It is the second longest of the roads through the Highlands of Iceland.
