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.

Amazing time on our Nordic Visitor tour!

We had such an amazing time on our Nordic Visitor tour. Hilmar was extremely helpful and accomodating. We loved our tour package and all its suggestions on activities and cuisine. The in car wifi was essential to the tour and we were glad to have it. We can't recommend Nordic Visitor enough to our friends and family! We loved the experience and would absolutely book through Nordic Visitor again in the future!

Very positive experience

I had a very positive experience with Nordic Visitor and would recommend Nordic Visitor to my friends!  Thor was amazing and very helpful and I truly appreciated his assistance in answering my questions and preparing my Iceland trip!

Enjoyable and easy!

I think working with Nordic Visitor to plan a self-driving trip was the way to go. Although guided tours are easy and enjoyable, we really prefer to travel on our own at this point. The planning and information provided by Nordic Visitor where you take care of all the details made this trip very easy. Your services of finding and booking the right kind of hotels and guesthouses to accomodate our budget, providing a beautiful travel guide and suggestions on what to see, and booking and including a car with Wi-Fi and information on all coordinates to map our trip made our trip enjoyable and easy. We were six adults in a van having a great time in Iceland -- thanks to Nordic Visitor. It was our magic bus for seven days. Thank you!
