We are trying to plan a trip to Iceland in late October through very early November and we're having difficulty trying to determine driving times between towns on the Ring Road. We will be driving a rental car - not 4-wheel drive. Is the Ring Road closed by weather often during this time? With normal driving conditions (which I understand are slower than Americans are often used to given like distances - hence my uncertainty), how long should it take to drive from Skaftafell to Hofn; from Hofn to Egilsstadir; from Egilsstadir to Lake Myvatn; and from Akureyri to Reykjavik going toward the west?
Thank you very much for any help you can give.
