According to the Road Condition site of the Icelandic government, roads 862 and 864 that are the closest to Selfoss and Dettifoss are "impassable" right now. This condition has been maintained for weeks, and I'm afraid that when we arrive there (in 3 weeks) the road will still have the "impassable" mark.

As we will drive a non-4×4 vehicle, is there any alternative way (by foot or public transport) to get to these sights in April?


You will not be able to get there on foot. It is more than an hour's drive from the Ring Road on 862/864.

I'm sure there are 4×4 tours you could hire, but I am not aware of a public route there.
