Iceland (september-october)

Hello to all,
I ask for information for Iceland ..... it's a good idea to go from mid-September to mid-October?
Unfortunately I leave at that time.
Thanks Fabio

Hopefully some locals will chime in with better information but I think it will be hard to find accommodation in the highland. (But there are many nice places to pitch a tent).
I guess closing of roads will be weather-dependent. There is a map of todays status here: Search the web | Road conditions and weather | English | Vegagerðin Maybe you can find some historical informatio on the same place.

Going to Iceland

I was in Iceland from the 4th of august, we had nice days and rain, when it rains it is cold 6-8 C. I don' t think it will be possible to cross europes largest dessert in september. (Spregisandur) if you see the sign "Ill Fær Vegur" that means very bad road, we were ther for 14days in 2005 on 1150, 1200, & 650 GS, two men & a lady.

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
