Driving Around Iceland in Early April

Michael in New York
My wife and I will be in Iceland the first or second week of April 2014 for about 5 days.  We were planning on renting a 4x4 and driving around the Ring Road.  I know the mountain roads will probably be closed at that time of year but is the Ring Road likely to be open?

Hello Michael,

The ring road will be open.

It will be better if you could come more days... 5 days are not enough for a trip around Iceland (ring road).
We would say minimum 7 days.

We can help you with your itinerary by commenting and suggestions. Just write here days and activities, for example:

Day 1 (8 Aug arrive KEF at 930AM)
• Rental Car, Groceries
• Geysir, Gullfoss, Þingvellir National Park (tectonic plates), Bruarfoss
• Route 36 to 35 to 1
• Car type: family car
• Lodging: Should we stay in Selfoss or Hella?

Day 2 (9 Aug)
• From Hella, we head into remote highland area of Landmannalaugar and Fjallabak
• We read about this area and were undecided if this was worth a trip??
• Route: 271 to 272 to 26 to 268 to 264
• Car type: family car
• Lodging: Where should we stay?

Day 3 (10 Aug)
• From Landmannalaugar region, we head to Seljalandsfoss and drive along Eyjafjoll
• We read about Landmannalauger area and were undecided if this was worth a trip
• Route: 271 to 272 to 26 to 268 to 264 to 1 (Is this correct?)
• Car type: family car
• Lodging: Where should we stay? Skogar or Vik?

...

So, you can write down your route and we will help you and make comments :)

Best regards from Reykjavík,
