Ring Road Closed in Southeast Iceland Due to Mudslide

The Ring Road (Route 1) is closed in Southeast Iceland due to a mudslide. The closure is between Höfn and Djúpivogur. There is a yellow weather alert in the area.

Wet weather in Southeast Iceland is likely the cause of a mudslide that has closed the Ring Road. Thankfully, conditions are expected to improve this afternoon. Until then, heavy rain and low visibility are expected in the area.

More information on when the road will reopen will be available around 4.00pm today.

Travellers in the region should be aware of the increased risk of landslides due to wet conditions and are encouraged to monitor road conditions online or by calling 1777 (+354 522 1100 from non-local phones).
