Traveling to Reykjavik in September?

September brings together summer and winter in Iceland. You must have a lot of questions…What to wear? What to see and do? What is the weather like…?

… “Will we be able to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights?” The answer here is YES! The Northern Lights season starts again! Plenty of ways to enjoy this lovely month. 🙂

The weather: definitely a fickle thing.
Temperatures in September are around 5°C – 10°C and we will most likely see an increase in rain, so do not forget to bring waterproofs.

What to see and do:

Explore the wonderment of nature!

  • Golden Circle and Sightseeing tours – check out the selection here.
  • Explore Snæfellsnes Peninsula
  • Glacial hiking and climbing tours – see the selection here. The glacier, Sólheimajökull, is located only two hours from the capital.
  • Witness stunning fall colors. We recommend a visit to Heiðmörk or Þingvellir (Thingvellir National Park) or any other area with moss and birch for a wow experience. Make sure to bring your camera 🙂
  • Berjamó! The activity of going out to the country to pick berries, called Berjamó in Icelandic. August to mid-September is definitely berry-picking season here in Iceland. Check out Heiðmörk area and in the slopes of Mt. Esja for some berry picking. Berry picking is allowed on any unsettled land so go ahead and pick them yourself 🙂
