Itinerary description

Car track from F1 just west of Hvolsvollur through Alftavatn and back through Fljotshlid. Can only be done on 4x4 jeeps, big tires help a lot (35" or bigger) due to rivers on the way, first Markarfljot, (smaller version up there), then Kaldaklofskvisl, a stable bottom but can be streamy and then Blafjallakvisl, calm but relatively deep. Road is a bit rough in places as one is driving through lava fields. This circle is 143 km. and it takes some where around 4 hours, depending on stops and ability to drive fast through rough road. The scenery is breathtaking.
