Hi all. We are going to be driving the Ring Road counter clockwise beginning mid-October. I just happened to come across a post in which someone wrote that the Ring Road is very scary between Egilsstadir and Hofn and recommended taking the 92/96. I believe that was if one was going clockwise. I was unclear if it was an issue going in my direction. My understanding is there are tight turns in the mountains with no guardrail and possibly no shoulder and much of it is gravel.
Are there any other sections I should be aware of when traveling counter-clockwise beginning at Reykjavik? I'm a good driver but am afraid of heights and am not keen on driving on roads with steep drop offs with no room for error. We have booked a 4WD Landcruiser (4 of us). For those you in the US, as an example, I hated driving to Lake Tahoe. The opposite direction was tolerable.
