We had an incredible trip through the Highlands along the Sprengisandur (volcanic sandy road) and stopped at the Highland Center to stay while visiting Landamannalaugar. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The room is small by US standards, but it was comfortable and warm. You

Will I need a 4 Wheel drive vehicle to reach your location?
Hi Lrayo, Assuming that you are travelling from the South, you do not need a 4-wheel drive to get to the Highland Center. However, it is highly advisable, if you continue to the Vatnajökull National Park. We saw a few 2-wheel drive cars on the road. Although the weather conditions change, at the end of the road into the park, we had to ford a river; that would have been impossible with a 2-wheel drive car. Enjoy Iceland, Robert
