To Uthlid is about 100 km asphalt road from Reykjavik. Drive road nr 1. Then turn left road 35 before you arrive Selfoss. Then turn left road 37 via Laugarvatn.

Outside winter time the shortest way is through Thingvellir (Þingvallavegur 36) and Laugarvatn. Around 90 km.

You will see a road sign “Uthlid” about 10 km before you come to Geysir. There is a blue church a prominent symbol. To go to the reservation you don’t turn from the main road up to the church but takes the next turn where you see the road sign: Uthlid Cottages

You should either have a good road map or navigator.
