Hello, i will be driving towards the east region on March 25, from Hofn.
i have a few questions if anybody can help me out
(1) OPEN ROADS
If i understand correctly, the below route is not possible in winter, correct? because some sections of Ring Road 1 is closed in winter, which includes march
does this mean i have to travel in this manner - using coastal road?
(2) WHERE TO STAY
i need to decide on a place to stay the night - Egilsstadir, Seydisfjordur, or any of the east coast fjord cities/towns or even by lake lagerflot. which one should i pick and why? from pictures, it looks like Seydisfjordur is more beautiful than Egilsstadir? but i may be missing something here. but i still see people recommending to stay in Egilsstadir. which one is a bigger town? i know Seydisfjordur is a ferry port..
(3) WHAT TO DO
- is there any places to stop and see/do for the journey from Hofn to Egilsstadir/Seydisfjordur,
based on my reading, it sounds like there's not much happening, except just to enjoy beautiful scenery/fishing villages... but correct me if i am wrong
- is lake lagerflot worth a trip in march? what do you see besides that worm?
- is it possible to hike to Hengifoss/ Litlifoss waterfall outside Egilstaddir at all? or all still covered with snow which means only with crampons the trip is possible?
any ideas on what else i can do there, please shoot!
