VISITING ICELAND FROM LONDON

Iceland is a place of stark beauty and remote tranquility with its vast landscape of towering mountains, roaring waterfalls, and sweeping black sand beaches. With so many things to do and see in Iceland, it is a dream holiday for nature lovers and adventurers.

From bespoke city breaks in Reykjavik to custom road trips or guided tours in the countryside, you'll be able to experience many of Iceland’s famous natural attractions – waterfalls, glaciers, hot springs, volcanic sites and more – in a short holiday in Iceland from London.

No matter the month, it's always an absolutely fabulous time to visit Iceland. Most of Iceland’s top attractions are accessible year-round, even over Christmas and New Year’s, and many are within a short drive or day tour from Reykjavik. Imagine starting your day by bathing at the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa or exploring the natural wonders of the Golden Circle route.

Even in wintertime, the city centre of Reykjavik stays lively with an abundance of cafes, bars, restaurants, museums, shops, art galleries, and thermal swimming pools. There are also plenty of cultural events all year long, such as the buzzing Iceland Airwaves Music Festival in November. And don't forget this is the ideal time of year to spot the northern lights in the dark sky.

With a holiday by Nordic Visitor, you can enjoy the city and natural sights at your leisure as we handle all your local arrangements: hotels, airport transfers, optional activities and more depending on your preferences. You could even add Greenland to your Nordic itinerary for an extra wow factor.

Want to drive around the country? We recommend at least 7 days, preferably 10 days or more, to drive the Ring Road with a car hire.

As local travel experts in Iceland, we always goes the extra mile to ensure that you're safe on the road. With all self-drive tours, we provide a brochure about driving in Iceland, a road map marked with your route, accommodations and highlights, unlimited in-car Wi-Fi and much more.

Scott, United Kingdom
Iceland Full Circle Classic - Winter, November 2023

We had an amazing time

We cannot recommend our tour enough. We had an amazing time and have already told friends and family about it. Iceland is an amazing place and I am sure we will be back and will use Nordic Visitor again!

James, United States
Iceland Full Circle Classic, September 2023

Experience of a lifetime

I primarily wanted to use Nordic Visitor as a resource for creating our 14-day trip itinerary, to help weed through what seemed to be an endless array of choices, and to help us to get the very most out of our time in Iceland. Yes, we could have pieced it together ourselves but I needed an advocate in Iceland, an advisor, and maybe a resource for us if issues were to arise. That piece of mind was important to my wife and me and I'm glad we chose them to frame our trip. It made it much easier to piece in the parts that were important to us to see and experience. That allowed us to just enjoy the trip and not get bogged down in the details of planning each and every moment.

There are so many things I could say about our experience, an experience of a lifetime and after posting snippets of our trip on social media I have found that several friends of mine want to know how we planned this trip. I told them the same thing I am saying here, save a little money if you want and plan it yourself or trust a reliable source like Nordic Visitor and let them give you the trip framework and essential advice. I would do it the same way if I were doing it over.

Christopher, Australia
Winter Highlights - Private, November 2023

Warm and engaging guide

Great tour. The sights are of course amazing and the tour made the most of our time, weather and our interests/priorities. Driver and guide David managed all of these very well. He was also very knowledgeable and personally warm and engaging. Could not have asked for more.

Jerine, Canada
Natural Wonders of Iceland, August 2023

Perfect for solo traveller

A beautiful itinerary, exceptional guide and perfect weather made this a trip I will never forget. Nordic Visitor made the process easy, and Iceland opened her arms. My 10-day small group tour was perfect for a solo traveller who wanted to see it all. 

Kimberly, Canada
Iceland Road Trip, October 2023

Trip of a lifetime

Overall this was an amazing experience! A trip of a lifetime that I could never have planned myself. Any questions I had during planning were answered faster than expected and I felt safe and well looked after during the trip. Trip was smooth and hassle free.

Patricia, United States
Scenic South Iceland, August 2023

5-star experience

Not only did we absolutely love every stop on the Scenic South Iceland tour, but prior to the tour we stayed for 4 days in Reykjavík. I appreciated Nordic Visitor's recommendations for things to do and places to eat there and felt highly supported by Marko, our travel consultant, in every regard to booking our flight and own hotel, day trips I was interested in, and taking public transport around. A definite 5-star experience!

David, Australia
Iceland Full Circle Classic - Winter, October 2023

Many thanks to Nordic Visitor

Absolutely amazing. No issues whatsoever. We saw it all from North to South and much of in between. From reindeer to whales and more beautiful waterfalls and volcanic bits than you could hope to see in a week. Every hour the scenery seemed to change dramatically. Just a great experience. Many thanks to Nordic Visitor.

Robert, United States
Romance Around Iceland, July 2023

Best vacation we have had

Everyone at Nordic Visitor were very responsive to all questions we had during our 30-year anniversary trip to Iceland. We had airline travel issues and the representative adjusted our itinerary so we were able to see the whole island. The accommodation were beautiful and everyone was so friendly. This was the best vacation we have had, we left Iceland relaxed!
