Road F575 (Eysteinsdalsleið)

Road F575 (Eysteinsdalsleið)

Located in the Western Region of Iceland the F575 (Eysteinsdalsleið) is a very difficult drive with breathtaking landscapes. Only for 4x4 vehicles. The GSM signal is rather unreliable.

The road runs from the road 570 to road 574. It is extremely rough in spots. Should not be drive in anything else than a full size 4x4 with high clearance. 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. The road is heavily potholed and your vehicle will bounce, labour and shake. The road is not for the faint of heart and absolutely not for those without real four wheel drive and the know how to drive on challenging roads.

The drive offers great views of Klukkufoss and Snukkjufoss. It’s only open during the summer months, usually between late June and early September. The drive combines strong stony slopes, broken sections, big rocks and muskeg. Expect to be alone, this track is not very busy even and very remote. 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 journey gives way to some of Iceland's most epic landscapes. The drive runs into Snæfellsjökull National Park alongside Snæfellsjökull, a 700,000-year-old stratovolcano with a glacier covering its summit. It’s one of the famous F Roads of the country.
