Groupon northern lights tour

There is a groupon available for a trip to Iceland with a tour to see the northern lights. My questions are when is the best time to go? Are the lights always visible in Iceland?

You need to go sept to April to have a chance of seeing the lights as other times of year are too light with too many hours of daylight.

I was there for 7 days at the start of this month and saw nothing, too much cloud. We went on the tour twice - the first time, saw nothing due to extensive cloud cover, the second we got some clear sky but no auroral activity. The four nights in between those two it was cancelled because of the weather. The weather there is very changeable and you need to be aware that all tours, including the aurora one, is subject to cancellation due to weather. Only got clear skies on our last two nights and the solar activity dropped to almost 0 those nights!

We were there from Mar 3rd to 8th and did not see them due to the poor weather conditions. We would like to go back in maybe November or December and try again.
