With four in the small rental car and an experienced driver at the helm, was it a near death experience or just a first time for all of us? It was a bit of both. With no warning it seemed that the two lanes became...More

A one way tunnel with passing places and a T junction in the middle of it. This is a magnificent piece of engineering in such remote areas of Iceland. All drivers are gracious to one another and traffic flows freely Amazing

The tunnel is a single lane road going south to north but there are numerous pullouts to let oncoming traffic pass. A couple of kilometers south of the north end, it is intersected by a 2-lane tunnel coming in from the west

We were on a small van headed through Northern Iceland and came upon this tunnel which was about 6 km long and went underneath your fjord. It was very interesting as we have never seen anything like this before. It seems pretty safe with lots...More

It’s a tunnel... so what you may think? We travelled through it twice while on a guided tour and it certainly got lots of ‘wows’ on our coach. It’s Iceland’s longest tunnel, it has a junction in it and one of the roads is single...More
