Q: I will be traveling to Iceland (again) late August, and have been trying to find information regarding Road 793. Is this road OK to drive in a 4x4, and what condition is it in?

A: According to information from the Icelandic Road Authority, Road 793 is the old Siglufjörður Mountain Pass in North Iceland. It’s a steep gravel road, only passable for a 4x4. Its condition is no worse than usual, so you should be fine if you have a 4x4.
