Is It Possible to Visit Dyrholaey in a Small Car?

Hi,

I keep seeing references to the difficult driving conditions around Dyrholaey. Is it possible to visit it in a small 2WD vehicle? We are willing to park and hike a ways if needed.

Thanks!

Ben

Or as an alternative, are there tours of Dyrholaey that depart from Vik?

No problem at all with a small car. It was open as of last week BTW, not closed for bird breeding season as a lot of sources state.

>>>bedknobs , it is not closed as such but accessible between 9 am - 7pm for breeding season. There are 2 boards mentioning that clearly and I saw a guy enforce the timings by blocking the roads after 7pm and before 9am. Did you not read that or just ignore the notices and the road blocks and hiked up the last 5km after parking your car by the roadside ?

Btw, OP, it is not at all dangerous driving up to Dyrholaey on 218 (iirc), you should try the one lane gravel roads north of KaanaPali in Maui which goes through mountains, now that is dangerous !!!
