We are thinking about planning an off season 8 night trip to Iceland in mid April. I know that this is spring for Iceland and that the weather can be varied. We would like to drive the ring road and I would prefer to book lodging in advance. Is this a mistake in April? We are from western NY and so driving in winter conditions are not a concern for us but I am concerned that if we book our lodging and they get a snowstorm and the ring road closes that we would have an issue. What are your opinions? Would you plan a ring road trip or do a couple of bases and day trip? If you would base and day trip where would you base? Thanks in advance for your help!
