Almannaskard is a mountain pass at an elevation of 162m (531ft) above the sea level, located in the Eastern Region of Iceland.
The road to the summit is mostly asphalted. It’s pretty steep (over 11%). Located between Hornafjörður and Lón, the summit offers stunning coastline views. The pass was regularly closed during the winter because of snow, so in 2005, a tunnel called Almannaskarðsgöng bypassed the old road. The pass is still accessible to vehicles throughout the summer months, though the south-west ramp is now closed to the public.
