Which Route from Landmannalaugar to Thorsmork?

chrissiepen
Hey!

From the airport we plan to take Rt.32 through Stori Napur to Landmannalaugar, stay a few days then head south to catch all of the awesomeness there.  
We want to see everything from Seljalandsfoss to Vik and also spend a day hiking Thorsmork.
Herein lies the problem...do we take Rt.26 back to the ring road and over to Thorsmork, spend a day hiking there, see all the things in the south and move east around the ring?  

OR do we take F208 (we will have a 4x4) to Vik, back west to Thorsmork to do some hiking then back east across the ring road, seeing all the wonderful things in the south?

I guess we need to know if we will be missing a great road trip if we don't do the southern half of the 208 inland route.  Is 26 a nice drive?  

Thank you so much for your knowledge!

Dear chrissiepen,

If you want to take a most exciting route trough the Icelandic highlands I´d take F208 south and then west to Þórsmörk (longer way).
If you want to make the shortest option then take the Route 26 back ro the Ring Road.

Best regards,

Thanks for the reply!

That is kind of what I was thinking, as well.  
It seems 208 is a bit of a unique Icelandic experience, and maybe we should do it.  We will have to discuss.  

Thanks again for the input!  It is greatly appreciated.
