Hólaskjól is located by the northern Fjallabaksleið, about 35 km from the national road. About 23 km west from Kikrjubæjarklaustur you have to drive road number 208 through Skaftártunga. Just below the farm Búland you will have to make a turn and drive the road F208. During the summer you can drive the road with almost any car because there are no unbridged rivers in the way. From Landmannalaugar to Hólaskjól is about 37 km if you drive road F208, the northern Fjallabaksleið. The route is very beautiful but the rivers and streams are only for cars with a four-wheel drive.
