SUMMER TOURS IN ICELAND

Summer is the most popular time to visit Iceland… and for good reason! With the effects of the midnight sun, a summer vacation in Iceland gives you extra-long daylight for driving, sightseeing, hiking and countless other activities such as whale watching, bird watching, horse riding and more.

You can take more time to enjoy Iceland's top highlights, including waterfalls, glaciers, iceberg lagoons, hot springs, lava beaches, geothermal baths and other picture-perfect sights. Summer is also the best time to visit Iceland if you want to explore the remote, beautiful West Fjords or take a day tour into the uninhabited volcanic highlands.

Though many of Iceland's famous attractions can be visited during a short 3- to 5-day holiday in Reykjavik, summer is the best time to get out and explore the countryside—either on your own or with a guide—on a tour lasting 7 days or longer. To drive around Iceland’s Ring Road in summer at a relaxed pace, we recommend at least 10 days.

Want to see the northern lights in Iceland? Dark nights are required for viewing this natural phenomenon, so a winter tour between October and April is best for a chance of sightings.

Iceland Road Trip, June 2017

What a fantastic holiday

We loved Iceland, the people and we have a myriad of experiences to reflect back on. What a fantastic holiday. It worked smoothly from beginning to end. Thank you Nordic Visitor and in particular Dagny.

Jack, United States

Iceland Full Circle Classic, July 2017

Been to 30 countries & rate this at the top

I have already recommended Nordic Visitor to many friends who are interested. Thank you for the chance to visit your country. I have now been to thirty countries and rate this experience at the top. What impressed me also were the number of young people, drivers, waiters, hotel staff, who were so excited to meet and show their country. The most impressive part of this trip was Iceland and her greatest aspect, her people. I look forward to returning.

Amy Woods, United States

Iceland Full Circle Classic, July 2017

Can't wait to come back!

I have already recommend Nordic Visitor to several friends and family members! We had an absolutely amazing trip and I can't wait to come back! Everyone was helpful and patiently answered all of my questions. I'm very happy we chose Nordic Visitor for our trip and I would choose them again! 

Dorian, United Kingdom

Iceland Full Circle Classic, June 2017

One of the most enjoyable holidays we have ever had

The service provided by Nordic Visitor was excellent and we had one of the best and most enjoyable holidays we have ever had. It was a pity that the offices have moved out of the centre of Reykjavik as we would have liked to have visited to thank Klara in person.

Abbey Stalder, United States

Would recommend this company in a heartbeat!

Kristin was amazing from the very start. without her help, I do not think this vacation would have been half as wonderful as it was. would recommend this company in a heartbeat!

Excellent planning

Very quick to answer all of my questions with friendly informative replies Choices of varied accommodation was wonderful - loved the guesthouses. Daily driving time was perfect between destinations- not too long or too short. Excellent planning - well done.

Excellent company to work with

Excellent company to work with. The materials provided to us were well chosen and very helpful. We asked for additional copies of the road map and bound guide and these were waiting for us on our return to Reykjavik.  A pleasure doing business with Nordic Visitor.
