Hˇlaskjˇl is located by the northern Fjallabakslei, about 35 km from the national road. About 23 km west from KikrjubŠjarklaustur you have to drive road number 208 through Skaftßrtunga. Just below the farm B˙land 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 Hˇlaskjˇl is about 37 km if you drive road F208, the northern Fjallabakslei. The route is very beautiful but the rivers and streams are only for cars with a four-wheel drive.
