Not sure this is so much a travel question as a meteorology\astronomy one, but I'll bite :-) I know more of the meteorological side than the astronomical. I've learned little bits and pieces at university and through websites, but honestly, I'm not anywhere near an astronomy expert. So I'll just tell you what I've learned and put together from the ...

Incredibly, rather than my usual long philosophical discussion, I have exactly the answer for you: http://aurorawatch.lancs.ac.uk sign up for the alerts: http://aurorawatch.lancs.ac.uk/alerts It's probably the best aurora watch/planning service. But find the competitors using google and entering "aurora watch". Hope it helps.

I have been on Iceland September/October 2015, based in Reykjavic and doing tours of the Golden Circle and the south coast (basically what you plan to do in two days done in one day.) Any place the coach tours stop has toilets, often more than one group. That is one near to the sight and one at the restaurant for the area. Even with the big numbers of ...

Restrooms appear with adequate frequency along the way. A few years ago, I drove around the whole island. While I was told the ring road was around 1400km, my car clocked in 3400km when I returned to to the rental place, since I kept taking detours and looping around to see the sights.

My girlfriend and I did this drive about 3 years ago, and we went all the way through Vik and up to EgilsstaĆ°ir.

From our experience, you should really not worry about ...

The leave no trace principles provide excellent guidelines for doing your business in the wild. As the name suggests, the general memento is leave no trace. In other words, whatever you carry in you carry out of where you are. This applies to human waste too. If you have to urinate or defecate, make sure you do so at least 100m away from water sources, ...

There are obviously a lot of gas stations along this road too, some of which have restrooms you can pay a little to use. See hours on the linked page as well. These are frequently treated as public facilities, rather than for paying customers only. You can also pay a little at hostels / guesthouses along the way to use their facilities.

It's very likely the roads won't be open yet, according to the Icelandic authority, which publishes statistics on such matters. The median date for opening Landmannalaugar is June 17, the earliest date being May 31 so you're short on luck it seems. If the roads are closed, I don't think any bus company will attempt to go there. I've checked a few bus ...
