If conditions are deemed to be safe, the Icelandic Road and Coastal Administration hopes to open the roads to the Landmannalaugar Nature Reserve in the highlands on Saturday, Vísir reports. This would be the earliest that the roads have opened in the last five years.
From 2014 to 2018, the earliest that the Landmannalaugar roads were opened was June 18 and the latest, July 1. Road Administration employees are currently checking conditions to see if it will be safe to open the roads on Saturday.
Visitors should keep in mind that Landmannalaugar can only be reached by 4×4 jeeps along the Fjallabaksleið nyrðri (F208) or Dómadalsleið (F225) roads. Road conditions and openings can be checked on the Road Administration website here.
