Driving the wild Road 59 (Laxárdalsvegur)
Road 59 (Laxárdalsvegur) is the name of a very scenic mountainous journey on the northern part of Iceland.
The road runs across Húnaþing vestra and Dalabyggð. It’s totally unpaved and impassable in winters. It’s pretty narrow and tops out at 201m (659ft) above the sea level.
The road is 35.8 km (22.24 miles) long and runs east-west from Borðeyri to Búðardalur.
