Critique my March Iceland itinerary

Hi all, 3 of us (experienced snow/ice drivers) are coming to Iceland end of March 2024. We are renting a car, we know roads can be bad, so we do NOT want to push our time or be in a hurry. Looking for leisurely, allowing for the unexpected. Can you critique my itinerary? Am I spending too much time in places? Should I allow more time in others? Also, I'd love hotel recommendations (budget friendly for 3 late 30's/early 40's). Primary goal: Northern Lights!! But I have a lot of the sites on each drive listed.

Thank you so very much,

Day 1

Land 6:15AM Keflavik Airport

To Blue Lagoon (8:00 reservations) 29 min drive

To Reykjavik 49 min drive

Day 2

Golden Circle

Stay in Selfoss?

Day 3

Day 4


Day 5

Vik- Jökulsárlón (2 hours 44 minutes)

Day 7

Midgard Base camp?-Reykjavik (1 hour 34 min)

Day 8

Given you have good chunk of time, I would consider adding Snćfellsnes peninsula as a day trip from Reykyavik. Probably feels hurried up but it was an amazing drive and Kirkjufell is also there.
