I would like to drive from Reykjavík to Stykkisholmur and two days later from Stykkisholmur to Akureyri at the end of April this year.
After reading in some books I am not sure if this is a good idea and therefore I think about skipping Stykkisholmur. I'm concerned about the bad conditions of the roads in that region. Would I need a 4x4 or is a small rental car good enough? How safe are the roads to Stykkisholmur? Are there flooded areas on the way or small rivers that have to be crossed?
