So..my friend just came back from Iceland and advised me that I avoid road 1 when driving from Egilsstadir to Hofn. The reason is that road 92 and 96 are much easier to drive since they're mostly landscape.
Is this advised...? or should I just take road 1? What do people take usually?
Looking at the map, 92 and 96 might be a good choice since there's a beautiful town (Fjarðabyggð; at least in pictures) that I can stop by along the way.
