The highland season in Iceland is different from one year to another. Some years it is open early spring, May - June and again mid July - Oktober. In 2015 it was completely closed untill late July but last year (2017) it was open from late June till Novemeber so it is difficult to forecast. If it is a cold winter with a lot of snow you can expect a late opening, but if it does not snow alot, you often can travel there early spring but the highlands are usually closed November - April and again during thawing of ice in June. A safe bet would therefore be July, August and September but after mid Oktober you can expect snow and high winds.

Iceland has so many things to give and so many wonderful things to see, but at the same time Iceland can be very unforgiving to anyone that is not careful whilst driving.
F-roads - The F stands for low maintenance gravel road where only 4x4 vehicles are suitable. Normal 2WD rental vehicles are not allowed on F-roads and in some cases the roads are so bad that standard 4x4 rental vehicles are not allowed either. No isurance covers damage to vehicles damaged due to bad F-road condition which means that you enter them at own risk.
Sheep in Iceland roam around freely - They don't know the traffic rules and might sprint across the road in front of your car. Hitting a sheep is dangerous and will result in damages to the car and sheep. No insurance covers damages caused by animals.
Off Roading - All driving outside of marked roads or tracks is stricktly forbidden. Icelandic nature is very fragile and wheel tracks make a mark on the surface which often are visible for many years and are also a new way for water to run causing even more damage. Everyone caught has to pay high fines and damage repair cost. Don´t ruin your holiday and don´t ruin our precious nature.
Traffic signs - In Iceland some traffic signs are unique. You may not have seen them before. Please acquaint yourself with them.
