This depends of course of what is going on in the sun. If you are lucky and the solarstorm is high you must be ready to travel around to find a clear sky. January is better the dark night is much longer.

I was there a couple of years ago in Aug/Sept, didn't get to see the aurora unfortunately. Hopefully will make it back there. I'd say you should make the trip, Iceland is increcible.

Iceland is an amazing trip. I went in late March 2011 for a week. Unfortunately I didn't get to see any aurora skies but Id go back in a minute. Husavik was one of my favorite towns not to mention the horses!

I am very jealous of your intended travel plans, Doc. When we had a lot of icelandic members and saw much of Iceland through photography, I was always entranced!

In October you will almost certainly see aurora, given that the sky is clear. You may, however, have to travel some distance out of the Reykjavík area if you hit a rainy period here in the southwest, but skies are rarely cloudy all over our island at the same time. So I'd say give it a go and welcome.

The airlines are pushing the Seattle to Reykjavik route and so tickets are somewhat cheaper to fly through January. Here's a question. If one were to stay 3-4 days in fall (let's say October), what are the odds of getting to shoot aurora? Are the skies generally clear in the fall? How many nights a month have aurora activity on average? I think it might be a fun excursion, but I want to get a feel for my odds on the aurora specifically. I know there's lots of other stuff to shoot in Iceland, but it would be my great hope to shoot aurora.
