Need help deciding - Iceland or New Zealand for 10-11 days

Two totally different locations, but we can't decide. We aren't the beachy, sit around and do nothing travel people. We prefer being able to drive around and hike and find things that are off the beaten path. Our budget isn't super strict, but we do plan on staying in hostels and not choosing the most expensive dining options so we can spend some more on a few excursions maybe. Alcohol won't be a factor as neither of us really drink. We'd be renting a car in either place. If we did NZ, the cheapest flight option is to fly into Auckland. Not sure how much traveiling we could do of both sides of the country and still be able to enjoy it. We don't need to do many 'big city' things - I'd rather be outside in nature.

I've heard a lot of NZ is like the PNW - and we do live in Seattle so we get out to the mountains quite a bit to hike, But I also know that it's still a completly different terrain.

Any insight would be great so we could try and decide.

OH! And the trip will be in the beginning of September so not sure how much weather will play into it.
