After looking online and at google maps photos, Iceland looks like a very cool destination for SO and I.
We are thinking of going in Oct.
Will the roads be open?
Will the weather (we saw lots of rain and cool temps then) spoil it?
We don't mind taking rain gear. We want to avoid rain all day, every day.
We enjoy driving and love pretty scenery, ocean/water views, high peaks and snowy views. Are areas of the Island closed in Oct (in general, not isolated bad weather day).
We take lots of photos. Is it too overcast to get good photos?
We love boat rides and ferry rides. Are they available then?
We enjoy trying new foods and old favorites (ordinary good cooking - not gourmet fine dining).
We do not go in for nightlife (non drinkers).
We don't often go anywhere "in season". We like to avoid crowds and school holidays.
If we have a choice, are we making a bad decision to go in Oct instead of Aug/Sep (or some other time)?
We are excited to go to Iceland.
We don't want to make a foolish choice of when to go.
Thanks, for any advice or info.
