Gæsavatnaleið no longer impassable via Flæður but snow levels unpredictable

Due to cold weather and frost during nights the water level on Flæður has been very low lately. Therefore closures via Flæður have been removed.

It has snowed quite a bit in Askja and therefore snow can be expected on Gæsavatnaleið. As little as 10cm of snow can make navigation very difficult as the road is unclear and therefore risk of off road driving and damages to nature increases. As we head towards winter, very little traffic is on the roads between Sprengisandur and Askja.
