Several bus companies have regular trips to and from Landmannalaugar during the tourist season.RoutesFour routes lead to Landmannalaugar and one of them is accessible by regular car, though the road is rough; stones the size of fists are not uncommon, as well as washing-board style sections of the road. Rented cars are not allowed on either road as F roads are usually only intended for 4WD vehicles. The easiest route to Landmannalaugar is to take either Road 30 from the main road and change into Road 32, cross the Sultartangi hydro-electric dam, going onto F26, then F208 and just before arriving in Landmannalaugar, making a right turn to F224. Road 26 can also be accessed directly from Rd. 1 just before arriving in the small village of Hella, crossing through typical Icelandic farmland landscape.
