Nokkurskonar "net- Į ferš um Ķsland" en öllu ķtarlegra, ķ ž.m. ķ lżsingum į hįlendisstöšum.  Grófleg stašhįttalżsing įsamt nokkrum fróšleiksmolum öšrum er um Landmannalaugar, Hrafntinnusker, Laugaveginn, Jökulgil og nokkra ašra staši ķ grenndinni og er aušvelt aš hoppa į milli staša innan sķšunnar.  Žaš er ekki bara gott aš rata innan sķšunnar, heldur leitast hśn viš aš lįta fólk rata um landiš, žvķ hśn gerir samgöngukerfinu góš skil.
A kind of an "internet- Around Iceland" but includes a lot more about the touristic areas in the highlands.  There is a short description of Landmannalaugar, Hrafntinnusker, Laugavegur, Jökulgil and some other places in the area and it“s easy to surf from place to place within the site.  Finding ones way is not only made easy on that site, but also in the country, since there is a good description on the public transport on the site.
