What gear for Iceland

In few weeks I going to Iceland for 7 days. We will drive through the half of the island by rented car.

I just trying to figure out which setup will be the best one.

I have three cameras:
A6000, A6300 (default onet), RX100IV

And following lenses
- SEL1018
- SEL1670Z
- SEL18135
- SEL55210

and primes
- SEL16F28 + UWA
- SEL30M35
- SEL35F18
- SEL50F18
- SEL85F18
- Batis 135

I do not want to take too much gear so probably I will take A6300 and RX100IV (while two Axxxx bodies would be nice it would solve the problem with switching lenses it is still problem during the flight - cheap flights limited bag size on the plane)

For lenses definitely will take
SEL1018 (landscape)
SEL35F18 (low light)

I am hesitating between SEL18135 vs SEL1670Z

The weather on Iceland is changing non stop so I think it is not the best environment to changing lenses.
So I suppose 16 mm at the end would give me some more wide angel options without need to switch lens.

From other side I heard that landscapes on Iceland are very big so extra reach to 135 maybe useful and maybe it is worth also to take SEL55210?

What is your opinion / experience. If you have some examples of photos from Iceland with different lenses please share to show the results you got.
