Icelandic Tunnel Database

The Icelandic Tunnel map runs from a database which we have put together with the grateful help of the contributors mentioned below.

You can search the database for tunnels by road number on our tunnels search page.

You can also see a complete listing of the tunnels on the database here. If you want to print off the database listings in order to take it with you there is a printer friendly listing here.

Icelandic Tunnel POI file

The Icelandic Tunnel map database is also available as a POI (points of interest) fileć which can easily be loaded into a Garmin GPS as a Custom POI file. You will need to use the Garmin POI Loader software available here.

gps tunnel map imageThere are several databases in the Tunnel map POI file that correspond to the traffic light colour scheme used to denote the type of tunnel.

gps tunnel map comment imageEach tunnel has a basic description of the tunnel.

It uses the format [name]. [road no.], [tunnel length], [open or closed to cyclists], [lit or unlit], [alternative route.}.

The Tunnel map POI file is available for download as a 21Kb zipped file (last updated on 31.10.09). To keep up to date with the changes in this file subscribe to our RSS feed as any changes will be notified there.

ćWe have only tested these files on a Garmin gps but as the files are in gpx format they could be imported into other mapping software and will then probably work with other makes of gps. You may loose the custom icons but the descriptions should be intact. Please let us know if you have any success with these files on other makes of gps -.
