What can you do with 3 days in Iceland? As it turns out, quite a bit!

From activity-filled city breaks in Reykjavik to short road trips or guided tours in the countryside, you‘ll be able to experience many of the most famous natural attractions — waterfalls, glaciers, hot springs, volcanic sites, geothermal baths and more — in a 3-day tour of Iceland.

No matter the month, it‘s always a good time to visit Iceland. Most of the country‘s famous attractions are accessible year-round, even at Christmastime, and many are within a short drive from Reykjavik. Plus, you can experience incredible seasonal phenomena depending on when you travel. Visiting between October and April? You‘ll have the opportunity to witness the northern lights glowing in the sky. Coming in summer? You‘ll enjoy extra daylight for sightseeing, thanks to the midnight sun.

Are you looking to drive around the entire country? We recommend at least 7 days, preferably 10 days or more, to drive the Ring Road with enough time to enjoy the attractions.

Nordic Visitor offers a wide range of self-drive tours in Iceland that can be customised to your liking, such as with extra nights and optional activities added to your itinerary.

Hungry for more

This tour is a perfect tour for a 'taste' of Iceland.  But it leaves us hungry for more.

Henry, United States

Golden Circle and South Coast, September 2017

I have already recommended Nordic Visitor to two friends

Accommodations were excellent. The rental car was also very good. The suggested itinerary and pre-highlighted map were very helpful and we kept to the itinerary with a few side add-ons. All pick-ups (at the airport, to go to the rental agency, and then to return to Keflavik) were on time and very good. I have already recommended Nordic Visitor to two friends who are planning trips to Iceland.

Personal touch to the holiday

Jane, Canada

Golden Circle and South Coast, August 2016

Our tour was wonderful!

Service from Nordic Visitor was wonderful. Excellent experience both in booking arrangements and the quality of our visit. Having all the accommodation arranged ahead of time made for a stress free visit and the glacier walk was outstanding in all ways. We enjoyed Iceland - it is a stunningly beautiful country. Next time we will seek more experiences away from popular tourist destinations probably some day hikes in national parks and will ask for your advice in arranging that visit.

Positive from start to finish

Our overall experience with Nordic Visitor was very positive from start to finish.  We were impressed with the friendly and knowledgeable staff, the arrangements made with hotels, car hire firms and activity organisers and the wealth of additional information provided.
