There may not be a straightforward answer to this but I was wondering about the best time of year to visit Iceland. One website I read said June/July/August as the weather is better and you get more daylight, and "summer activities" (whatever they are) shut down in the winter. On the other hand I gather the best time to see the northern lights is in winter/the early months of the year.
I'd really like to see the northern lights but also do things like visit geysers and go dog sledding. Is there a good time of year when I could do all that, or do you have to basically choose going for the northern lights in winter or going in the summer for other activities? One other problem is that there are certain times of the year I can't take any time off work, which are January, April, July and October, so I couldn't go in those months.
Also it seems to me that most people (from the UK at least) go to Iceland for a long weekend, maybe 4 or 5 days. Is there enough to do if I wanted to go for, say, 10 days?
