I would like to plan a trip to Iceland In September. I am dying to see the Northern Lights and I realize that there is no predicting when they will appear, but am trying to optimize my chances of seeing them. I was going to go during the week of the new moon (Sept 24), probably for a full week. From what I'm reading it says the "season" is mid Sept through mid March, but most of the tours look like they don't start until Oct. I REALLY want to see the lights, but also want to go at a time when there's still enough daylight and a moderate enough temp to enjoy daytime activities and the whole experience of Iceland. So my question is, is late Sept late enough, or should I push it back a little to Oct? Which dates do you think I'll get more out of.
