New Bridge over Mulakvisl open for all traffic
Saturday July 16 at 12:45 !!!!

How to get there

A flash flood swept away the bridge across Múlakvísl river on Mýrdalssandur in South Iceland. This affects traffic on Highway 1 (the Ring Road) about 10 km east of the village Vík, between Höfðabrekka from the West, and Skálm from the East.

The beautiful Route F208 - Fjallabaksleið nyrðri - is open. This is a mountain road that will take travelers north of the Mýrdalsjökull glacier, but travelers should be aware that the road is only passable for 4x4 vehicles. 

A specially equipped bus and trucks have started a free service ferrying smaller two-wheel-drive cars and their passengers over the affected river crossing.

Reconstruction of the bridge is underway, but it will likely take more than a week before the 150 m long bridge is open again. Authorities will make every effort to limit the inconvenience for travelers until connection across Múlakvísl is restsored. 

The daily bus service to Kirkjubæjarklaustur, Skaftafell and Höfn now runs through Fjallabak nyrðra (RouteF208) until connection across Múlakvísl has been restored. 

Bus schedule Reykjavik-Vik-Klaustur-Skaftafell-Hofn are running daily through road one or via Fjallabak.
