Iceland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark in the Fall? When is too late?

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip next Fall, 2015, to the above countries. We are going to return by transatlantic cruise that leaves Barcelona on October 30. We would like to start out traveling mid September, probably with Iceland first and then move on.

Questions: Should we start with Iceland? We plan on spending at least 10 days to two weeks and want to do a self driving tour. I understand some places close down in September so wondering if this would be too late?

After that, going by geography, Norway then Sweden then Denmark? We would spend a week in each at least. Again, anything we should be aware of as far as being too late in the season, or are we okay in these countries? I have done some reading already but still unclear on how late is too late to get around etc and still have small inns and attractions in the outlying areas still open.

Any suggestions from people who have done this in the Fall is most appreciated.
