The route follows Highway 1 westwards over Íxnadalsheii pass, through Skagafj÷rur valley, over Vatnsskar pass and leaving Highway 1 when driving up Bl÷ndudalur valley and past Bl÷nduvirkjun hydro-electric power station with its huge reservoir. A stop is made at Hveravellir which is a veritable oasis with geothermal activity in the midst of the highland desert. From there the tour continues south across the interior and between two glaciers, Hofsj÷kull and Langj÷kull, heading for the magnificent Gullfoss waterfall.
