Iceland Ahoy! Travel itinerary - 7 days and 7 nights

adeedee
Hello!
My friends and I are heading to Iceland in September. I was wondering if my itinerary here is a little overambitious. The plan is to drive around the Ring Road

Friday - Flight arrives around 11:40PM. Check into hotel and see Reykjavik night life (?)

Day 1 - Saturday
Explore Reykjavik

Day 2 - Sunday
Drive to Golden circle
Snorkel at Silfra
Spend the night in the Vik area

Day 3 - Monday
Vestmannaeyjar
Black sand beaches at Vik
Spend the night in the Vik area

Day 4 - Tuesday
Glacier hiking - Falljökull glacier
Galcier Lagoon - Jokulsarlon/ Fjallsárlón (boat tour - time permitting)
Eyjafjallajokull  (point at it from the distance)
Spend night in the Hofn area

Day 5 - Wednesday
Drive to Lake Myvatn
Myvatn Nature Baths


Day 6 - Thursday
Whale watching in Husavik
Goðafoss waterfall
Spend the night in the Sandarkrokur

Day 7 - Friday
Head back to Reykjavik
Blue lagoon
Spend the night in Reykjavik


Day 8 - Saturday
Head back!

 How are the roads in September? Icy? Will we need a 4 wheel drive?
And as for clothing? - Big snow jacket or just sweaters with a waterproof outer shell?

Any input would be appreciated!

Thanks =)

Most roads are open until mid-september, I would recommend you a 4x4 ;)

And as for clothing? - Big snow jacket or just sweaters with a waterproof outer shell?

Take winter clothes with you, you never know what you can get here!
