Iceland Road Trip, June 2017

What a fantastic holiday

We loved Iceland, the people and we have a myriad of experiences to reflect back on. What a fantastic holiday. It worked smoothly from beginning to end. Thank you Nordic Visitor and in particular Dagny.

Jack, United States

Iceland Full Circle Classic, July 2017

Been to 30 countries & rate this at the top

I have already recommended Nordic Visitor to many friends who are interested. Thank you for the chance to visit your country. I have now been to thirty countries and rate this experience at the top. What impressed me also were the number of young people, drivers, waiters, hotel staff, who were so excited to meet and show their country. The most impressive part of this trip was Iceland and her greatest aspect, her people. I look forward to returning.

Can't wait to come back!

I have already recommend Nordic Visitor to several friends and family members! We had an absolutely amazing trip and I can't wait to come back! Everyone was helpful and patiently answered all of my questions. I'm very happy we chose Nordic Visitor for our trip and I would choose them again!

Iceland Full Circle Classic, June 2017

One of the most enjoyable holidays we have ever had

The service provided by Nordic Visitor was excellent and we had one of the best and most enjoyable holidays we have ever had. It was a pity that the offices have moved out of the centre of Reykjavik as we would have liked to have visited to thank Klara in person.

Excellent planning

Very quick to answer all of my questions with friendly informative replies Choices of varied accommodation was wonderful - loved the guesthouses. Daily driving time was perfect between destinations- not too long or too short. Excellent planning - well done.

Excellent company to work with

Excellent company to work with. The materials provided to us were well chosen and very helpful. We asked for additional copies of the road map and bound guide and these were waiting for us on our return to Reykjavik.  A pleasure doing business with Nordic Visitor.
