i know people who went in july, august and september. it seems the best time is around mid-august to mid-september. plenty of lights, lots to see, not cold so light coat and northern lights
does that mean the northern lights aren't as good as it is in November vs the ones on July, August or September?

Is it better to see northern lights from boat than from the bus ride?

not that its not better. its more like some mentioned, part of the country is closed off starting in November so you can't do as much as you normally would during warmer days. as for the best spot, boat tour would be the best as they'll get you to the best view spot otherwise, you just need to get out the city and away from light pollution

northern lights are fine during November as in earliest August but if you want to do more while you are there, better to go end of August or mid to end of September. actually, October is fine too

How is (free) wifi in Iceland? Is it everywhere in coffee shops & restaurants like Tim Hortons & McDonalds' here?

It’s pretty prevalent. Every restaurant we went to, even in the smaller cities had wifi available. If you have an unlocked phone I’d still just recommend picking up a siminn card at the airport convenience store. It’s like 35 bucks for 10gbs of data. It’s handy for in between cities and to fill the gaps when the hotel wifi is spotty.

This is amazing. Between their discounted gift card rack, cheap hot dogs at the cafeteria, and free samples...I think you've found the key to making Iceland affordable for the RFDer lol.
Love it. The RFD way, jut eat all your meals at costco :D

This is what I did in July. It was only a 3 hour flight from Iceland to Copenhagen :). Also alcohol is very, very expensive in Iceland so everybody will tell you to purchase at Duty Free. Do it!
Thank you! This is a great tip. Going to do this for Ireland

One of these days I must really take advantage of these flights....mind you she's not *that* close...but my wife and I have an ollllllllld friend (and now her own family) who's in Reykavik. Would be a cheap getaway. Either there or Tel Aviv...Got a really good buddy in Sweden also who I'd love to visit for $250/$300 lol.

Yes, pick that up at the Airport convenience store. Price's the same (3000 ISK) as in the city anyway. SIM card was mostly out of stock in the convenience stores during my last visit. There are a few options. One with call (about a few houndred minutes) and 5gbs data. The other with 10gbs data only (no voice call). Price are the same for these two options. Duration of that is two weeks. I prefer this option instead of free wifi.

No carry-on! No bags! Is it cheaper to buy in Iceland than buying a baggage allowance? It seems that Iceland has more chances to see the aurora.
If we can dream it, we can make it!

I've updated OP with WOWAir's latest promo code for up to 30% off which is surprisingly valid for this deal.

The shortest day will be on November 30th with only 5 hours of daylight.
November is characterized by a gradual decrease in temperature. The average high temperature is 4 degrees Celsius (40 F), with the (average) highest temperature on November 1st, only reaching slightly above 5 degrees Celsius (41 F).
Isn't the Winter Solstice the shortest "day" in the Northern Hemisphere?

Take special care when you book your car online. Mine came with CDW and I cannot cancel it now :( (because I want to use my cc insurance)
