GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR 5 DAYS IN ICELAND

What can you do with 5 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 5-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.

Nordic Visitor met and exceeded every expectation I had

I have told everyone I know about what a great service you provide. As a single traveler it is very comforting to have complete confidence everything has been taken care of. I don't believe my experience would have been so rewarding if you hadn't been my guide. Nordic Visitor met and exceeded every expectation I had. Thank you SO much.

South Iceland Classic, September 2017

Trip of a lifetime

This was the trip of a lifetime. It surpassed our expectations. We love Iceland - Mother Nature at her best. Every turn had a new adventure and we just didn't want it to end. Your company did a fabulous job in giving us travel options and lining everything up for our arrival.  I have used other travel agencies and I only wish they were as professional as you. Thank you for such a great time in your country.
