So, I'm wondering... is it doable to do a self-driving tour of Iceland in mid to late October by hiring a car and getting on the road *without* pre-booking accommodation? The rationale is that I'd like to have the flexibility to spend more or less time at different locations depending on what I see there, without the pressure of having to arrive at the next stop by a certain time (other than the pressure of having to be back in Keflavik for the flight back, of course).
I'm guessing that it should be doable, since it's quite far from the high season, and I'd expect most places to have vacancies. Or would most places actually be closed for winter by then?
Any opinions? Am I likely to end up sleeping in the car if I try this?
Thanks for any suggestions.
