Landmannalaugar in April

Poon
Hi,

I'm writing in order to get your wise advise.
We are planning a 10 days trip in iceland end of march beginning of April and we were wondering if Landmannalaugar Region routes are workable ? We rented a 4X4 Land cruiser.
This would be our second trip to Iceland, the first one were in autumn but we  only had a Yaris so couldn t do it.

If you could also give us your opinion on our trip schedule that would be wonderful.
I ve based the itinerary on your previous recommendations.

Hello,

I am sorry to say it is impossible to drive to Landmannalaugar until June 15th. The road is close... you can drive there with a Super Jeep and i guess you are not renting one of them ;)

I recommend you to take a tour, there is a company call Landmannalaugar Tours and they run winter tours with Super Jeep: http://www.landmannalaugartours.com/#!day-tour-winter-landmannalaugar/c14ku

Good luck and let us know if you finally went there! It must be amazing to drive there during winter (I have been several times but never in winter)
