Is September a good month to visit Iceland?

Yes, September is a great month to visit Iceland. Although it’s a little cooler than the summer months, remote regions such as the Westfjords are still easily accessed. Enjoy most of the activities on offer during the summer months. You can still take a boat ride across the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon or go on a volcano tour until the end of the month.

September is the first month of the northern lights season. Although you may catch a glimpse of them over the summer, you are more likely to view them in their full glory from September onward. The beautiful autumnal foliage cannot be forgotten, with reds, oranges, and yellows painting the landscape and providing the perfect photo opportunity.

How crowded is Iceland in September?

Iceland is less crowded in September than during the summer months. However, whether it can be considered crowded at all is a matter of opinion! Even during the busier summer months, you can drive or hike long distances without seeing another person. By world tourism standards, Iceland is not a crowded country.

September is the first month of the offseason. Therefore, it brings more opportunities to visit well-known attractions with fewer people. You will find more crowds in popular areas such as Reykjavik, the South Coast, and the Golden Circle route. The weather has cooled slightly in September, and school vacations are over. With fewer people traveling to Iceland at this time of the year, it is the perfect opportunity to get a fantastic deal on flights and accommodation.

Can you see the northern lights in September in Iceland?

Yes, it is possible to see the northern lights in September. September is the first month of the northern lights season. Viewings of the aurora borealis are not guaranteed at any time of the year. However, with the nights becoming longer and darker in September, your chances of observing this incredible phenomenon certainly increase. The combination of strong solar activity and dark, clear skies create the best conditions for northern lights viewing. There are still plenty of daylight hours in Iceland in September. So while the window of darkness is shorter than in December or January, there are many alternative activities to do during September. That way, you can make a backup plan if the skies are cloudy and the aurora borealis are not visible. Check out northern lights tours that are specifically designed around optimizing your northern lights experience.
