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.

We really enjoyed our trip

The South Coast & Western Peninsulas - Private Tour, July 2017

Everything was perfect

Everything was perfect.  We had no problems.  We would definitely recommend them to any one going and wouldn't use another company ourselves to book a vacation with.

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.

South Iceland Classic, May 2017

Superb

The trip was superb and the redoing of our itinerary because of the weather was seamless which we appreciated greatly.  

Brenda, United States

South Iceland Classic, August 2017

Such a stress-reliever

Ævar was very prompt in all of our correspondence, and came up with the perfect plan on our arrival day to accommodate our early (and different) flights, excursions, and baggage. Having all of the lodging and airport transport/rental car/transportation to excursions set up for us was such a stress-reliever. When we had a question on arrival, I was able to be put through to speak to Ævar right away, and he fixed the issue. I had a million questions throughout the planning stage, and he patiently and graciously answered them all, sometimes more than once! Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience. We were sad to leave such a wonderful place (and we really love our homes!).

A New Year's to Remember in Iceland, December 2016

We adored Iceland, and we both agreed this was the BEST trip we have ever taken.

I cannot express enough how much we loved every aspect of this trip. We are older adults, and have both traveled extensively. We adored Iceland, and we both agreed this was the BEST trip we have ever taken.

Very helpful

Special thanks to Audur. She was very helpful and generally prompt in responding to email inquires. I was amazed at how extensive, comprehensive and helpful all of the written materials were to a successful trip.  All of the accommodations were very good.

Winter Highlights, October 2016

Extraordinarily beautiful country

The tour exceeded my expectations. It was an unforgettable experience to an extraordinarily beautiful country. The tour guide was sincere, knowledgeable and kind. He being a native to Iceland made the experience even more authentic. The group size was perfect, enabling the guide to personalize the tour even more. It was good to have some personal time in Reykjavik to explore on my own. I felt it a very walkable city, and I felt completely safe exploring on my own. The locals were always friendly, and willing to help me find my way when I got a little turned around. I've wanted to visit Iceland four about 12 years, and realizing a dream through this tour was more than I could have asked for. Thank you - I'll be returning to Iceland!
