Chilling in Iceland (but not yet).

I am finally getting close to a final itinerary. What do y'all think? Because we enjoy hiking and the outdoors so much, we're concentrating our ten-night trip on just southern Iceland so we have plenty of outdoor time. Options:

Day 1: Arriving red-eye 4 a.m. ish: Pick up regular rental car at airport. Options; Drive around the peninsula., Golden Circle tour., Blue Lagoon or other relaxing experience, whale watching or kayaking.... Check in earlyish to Start Hotel near airport.

Days 2 and 3: Julia's Guesthouse, near Selfoss. Options: Hiking, hotsprings, Golden Circle, Landmannalauger in the unlikely event that the road is open.

Days 4 and 5 Drive to Vik area. Overnight Thakgil, campground cabins.

Days 6 and 7: Hofn area, Nonhammar cabins

Day 8: Nordursild Guesthouse in Seydisfjordur, for drive around the east fjord and nearby lake, hiking, kayaking, etc.

This leaves us with 2 more days at a half-way(ish) point on the Ring Road A dilemma: should we keep going with little time to enjoy our surroundings, or head back the way we came? Do you think heading to the East Fjords for a night is even worthwhile? Another alternative is to book a daytrip or bus in for an overnight IF the road happens to be open. ??? Thoughts ???
