Driving a car off the marked roads is prohibited. Nature in Iceland is delicate and sensitive. The authors of this guide appeal to all readers and drivers of off-road cars: let's only follow the marked roads, do not go even a few centimeters off the designated road, do not sleep in the wild and do not litter this beautiful island. Icelanders are not prepared for mass tourist traffic. Let us help them maintain the island's beauty with our behavior!
Finally, information for those who ignore these civilized rules: offroad penalties are draconian. And rightly so!
Roads "F" are opened for several months a year, usually at the turn of June and July. The accessibility of these roads is updated on a regular basis at www.road.is
Driving on closed roads is prohibited, it is not subject to insurance protection. It is a testimony to the lack of basic manners and an overriding disdain for other cultures that causes the driver to not respect the nature and inhabitants of the country in which he is a guest.
