FRIEND GETAWAYS IN ICELAND

The trip to Iceland your friends will talk about for years! Geothermal spas, sizzling nightlife, superb dining and outdoor adventures — all the basics for an epic weekend getaway.

Experience Iceland with friends

 
For a memorable trip with your best mates, Iceland is hard to beat. The growing number of airlines flying to Iceland makes it easier than ever to reach: flight times are about 3 hours from London and 5-6 hours from North American hubs like New York or Toronto.
 
For culture seekers and nature lovers alike, Iceland has something for everyone. The capital city, Reykjavik, offers a renowned nightlife, a unique arts scene and innovative Nordic cuisine, while day tours to the countryside offer access to famous “fire and ice” natural attractions and thrilling activities with expert guides.
 
We can customise:
  • Reunions
  • Long weekends
  • Activities
  • Spa services
  • and much more
 

 

Why choose Nordic Visitor

 
At Nordic Visitor, customized holidays and unforgettable travel experiences are our specialty. We go the extra mile to ensure the highest level of quality and personal service at every step of your journey—from the moment you first contact us until after you return home from Iceland.
 
We don’t believe in the concept of “one size fits all”, which is why we take the time to understand your group’s needs and interests and tailor your itinerary accordingly. With your own dedicated travel consultant to handle the local arrangements, you can expect a hassle-free, enjoyable trip.

Activities

 

The capital, Reykjavik, is surrounded by incredible nature, and it’s surprisingly easy to get out and experience places like glaciers, lava fields, waterfalls and volcanoes. Join your friends on adventures like helicopter tours, glacier hiking, rafting, caving, snorkelling and snowmobiling—all professionally guided.

Or for more relaxing activities, we can arrange spa treatments, personal shopping and design tours, gourmet tastings and more.

 

Reykjavík Nightlife

 
Just like Iceland’s extreme nature, the nightlife in Reykjavik is just as dynamic. What this city lacks in population it more than makes up for with its variety of clubs, bars, lounges and small music venues. Best of all, the compact size of the city centre makes it easy to navigate between places.
 
From relaxing wine bars to hipster nightclubs—whether it’s just one happy hour drink or dancing until the wee hours of the morning—in Reykjavik you can count on finding something for your taste. As for those who want the VIP treatment, Nordic Visitor can also arrange the service of a personal nightlife guide to make sure you hit all the best hot spots.

Countryside
If you want to relax and recharge, nothing beats a night away—or even a few—in the tranquillity of the countryside. We offer a variety of small and medium sized lodgings around Iceland, including simple huts in the wilderness, luxurious 4-star accommodations with great views, cosy cabins and B&Bs. Whatever you’re looking for, we can find the ideal space and setting for your group.
 
Apartments

Restaurants

 

Great adventures are fuelled by great food. And in Iceland, you’ll find plenty of both. Take your taste buds on a gourmet adventure in Reykjavik with its diverse selection of restaurants, offering everything from fine dining with fabulous city views to the “world’s best” hot dog stand where you can try “eina með öllu”. Of course, you can even try unusual Viking delicacies, like fermented shark.

The combination of traditional recipes, international influences and local ingredients—such as farm-fresh lamb and seafood straight from the harbour—has created a unique culinary scene in Iceland, and the ambitious chefs are always coming up with creative new courses to whet your appetite. Whatever your palate desires, we are happy to recommend restaurants and assist with reservations for your group.
