Road F894 (Öskjuvatnsvegur)

F894 (Öskjuvatnsvegur) is a very demanding journey located in the Northeastern Region of Iceland. It's only suitable for 4x4 vehicles with very high ground clearance.

The road runs east-west from F910  road  to the car park at Vikraborgir. It’s 7.8 km long. It is a rough and challenging road only for a 4 wheel drive vehicle with high clearance. The track is pretty bad, it's not rolling with a lot of big rocks. Expect large potholes, many ruts and large boulders on their surface. Driving in a small passenger car is simply and plainly irresponsible and can be very dangerous. It has some steep sections. It’s one of the famous F Roads of the country.

Located in the Highlands of Iceland, the road is surrounded by lunar landscapes and is pretty bumpy. It’s only open during the summer months, usually between late June and early September. Expect to be alone, this track is not very busy. It is not recommended to drive unaccompanied. In case of a breakdown, there is very little in the way of passing traffic or inhabitants around, and no cell phone service in parts. The drive offers breathtaking landscapes.
