My friends and I are planning a trip to Iceland in the beginning of March. We want to see Akureyri, and potentially Dettifoss and Myatvn weather permitting, but are unsure of the best way to do this.
Some of my friends want to drive to Akureyri one day, stay overnight, do an 8-9 hour tour the next day, then drive back to Reykjavik during the night. I've read some reports saying that Iceland weather is pretty unpredictable during that time, with random road closures, and wanted to see if any Iceland veterans could give me a more accurate picture on how dangerous that plan is.
The other option would be getting a day tour from Reykjavik to Akureyri/Dettifoss, but the above friends really want to spend the night in Akureyri in case it's awesome. Is there much to do in Akureyri? Would it be worth spending the night?
Thanks for your help!
