SEE MANY OF ICELAND'S TOP HIGHLIGHTS IN 8 DAYS

Summer or winter, there's a lot you can see and do with an 8-day itinerary in Iceland.

Most visitors choose to spend a week or more in Iceland to venture further out of the Reykjavik area and experience more of Iceland's natural wonders along the Ring Road. With a fascinating array of glacial and volcanic landscapes just a few hours' drive from the capital city, it's easy to explore the south or west of Iceland in just over a week, either on your own with a rental car or with a local guide in a small group tour.

An 8-day tour at any time of year allows you take in attractions such as waterfalls, glaciers, hot springs, volcanic sites, geothermal baths and more. And in winter, you might even see some spectacular northern lights in the night sky.

Want to drive the entire Ring Road? To travel the full circle around Iceland at a relaxed pace, we strongly recommend a tour of 10 days or more.

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.

Linda, Switzerland

South & West Iceland Classic, September 2017

Knowledge about Iceland from people who live there is priceless

This was the first tour that we have ever booked. Normally when we travel, we research and do all our planning ourselves. This trip was a delightful exception. It was very well organized by Nordic Visitor. I felt so much more comfortable with having so much planned by the experts ahead of time. The knowledge about Iceland from the people who live there is priceless. The maps, the phone and the GPS, were a significant help. We would never have been able to have experienced all that we did in such mental and physical comfort without the aid of Nordic Visitor. Our accommodations were lovely, as well as the restaurants recommended. We most definitely will recommend you to our friends, as well as travel with you ourselves on our next Nordic adventure.

Extremely organised and professional

I found Nordic Visitor to be an extremely organised and professional company. I have met other New Zealanders who have found the same great service. Klara was great to deal with and we got a lot of great information about the holiday.

Very good experience

We had a very good experience. Having a representative at the car rental office was great. We were able to get the information we needed from her to get started. The maps and guides were great resources for the trip. Overall we are very pleased with Nordic Visitor. The planning and local support were great.

You made it easy so I could relax and have fun

You were lifesavers when I was traveling to a new country and didn't know what to expect.  You made it easy so I could relax and have fun.  Dagny was helpful, the tour was great, and I knew I could call you if I had any problems. We wouldn't have seen nearly as much without Dagney's recommendations.

Everything on the trip was absolutely fantastic

This is my second booking without Notdic Visitor, and I am even more impressed at how customised Ævar was able to make our tour. He accommodated everything we wanted to do, and it was so easy dealing with him. Everything on the trip was absolutely fantastic. The only thing we wanted was more time!!
