It is a tunnel folks! It is unusual tunnel as it has an intersection but it is a tunnel. Quite possibly you will enter it coming to town or exit through it leaving town.

Fans of unusual driving will enjoy this one. One-way bridges I was expecting in Iceland but not a one-way tunnel, complete with intersection 1/3 along. Only the part from the intersection to Isafjordur is two-lane, for the rest the person going downhill (driving out of...More

It helps to understand the landscape of the Westfjords before traveling here. This area is COVERED with fjords. Before this tunnel was created, it was basically impossible to get from town to town, especially near Isafjordur. This tunnel is now the only way to get...More

The only tunnel I have ever been through where you could stop and turn right and head through another tunnel! Single lanes most of the time but plenty of places to yield.

The tunnel connects the West Fjords. We went through twice on our tour of the West Fjords. You might think that a single lane tunnel would cause problems but there were none. Vehicles returning to Isafjordur have the right of way. There are a number...More

Amazing tunnel boring rough a mountain from Isafjordur to Flateyri, even with a turn off to Sudeyri in the middle! The tunnel begins two lanes at each end, but narrows to one lane in the center. Plenty of areas clearly marked to pull over for...More

For a country with a low population density, this is an engineering marvel. Drivers are polite about pulling over for oncoming traffic. The intersection in the middle of the tunnel is ingenious.

So... it's a tunnel. For a tunnel, it was awesome. It has an intersection inside it. I've never seen anything like that before. I rated it 3/5 as a compromise. It's just a tunnel so it's not worth a specific trip to see it. We...More

Outstanding tunnel. We spent the day going back and forth and turning down the other tunnels. A tunnel with an intersection is excellent. Our guide said that before the tunnels, people from the villages on the other side of the mountain from Isafjordur would drive...More

I have never been through at tunnel with an intersection half way through where the tunnel turns off in two directions.

From what I recall, there aren't very many local buses anywhere in Iceland, and I wouldn't expect there to be one that goes through the tunnel with a return shortly thereafter - I think there are only a few buses each day... More
