Although it's possible to do a 7 day road trip in Iceland while completing Ring road in summer, ten days is the minimum you will need for a complete Iceland Ring road road trip in winter. The weather conditions do not make it agreeable and you will need to drive much slower due to bad weather. Similarly, some roads are closed, so you will need to take a lengthier route.
We tried to pace this itinerary to minimize driving in between cities on a given day as driving in winter means driving in the dark most of the time.
