Mike, United Kingdom

Iceland Full Circle Classic, August 2020

A fantastic experience

We loved our trip to Iceland and found it a beautiful and dramatic landscape full of unique places to visit. Nordic Visitor provided us with all the information we needed on our tour, and suggested highlights particularly suited to what we wanted to see and do. Overall it was a fantastic experience which has left us keen to revisit Iceland again one day. 

Suzanne, United States

South & West Iceland Classic - Winter, January 2020

Loved everything about Nordic Visitor!

Everything was top notch! The tours were great and I loved that they were never overbooked, or crowded. Only one comment....we LOVED hotel Magma! Loved everything about Nordic Visitor! Everything was done perfectly. Never once was there an error with any of the reservations! Check-ins were seamless - never once was there a question or fumbling for papers. Each destination was ready for us and exactly what we requested! 

William, Germany

Iceland Ultimate Adventure, August 2020

Excellent service!

Due to the SARS-CoVid-19 conditions, the trip was more than expected. Unfortunately for Iceland itself, not many tourist were there to help with the economy. The service and communications with Silja and the others of Nordic Visitor was excellent and could tell they were trying their best to keep us informed of the consistently changing conditions due to SArS-CoVid-19. It was a shame that we did not have time at the end of the trip to stop by the office again and discuss the trip.

Karen, United Kingdom

Iceland Full Circle Classic - Winter, March 2020

Fantastic from start to finish

Would highly recommend Nordic Visitor to anyone wishing to visit Iceland. The itinerary, and information provided before the start of our tour was excellent and took care of all our concerns. Despite travelling in some of the worst weather conditions Iceland could throw at us we were only a phone call away from Nordic Visitor and the in car WiFi was a real bonus. All our concerns-snowed in, in the south, at Saeluhus I Landbroti with breakfast 4 km away and again snowbound at Gauksmýri in the north and unable to travel on- were dealt with rapidly and became part of the adventure rather than a worry.  Thank you Nordic Visitor for a memorable visit to your stunning country. Thank you for keeping us updated with the Coronavirus news and how it may have impacted on our travels. A big thank you to all the accommodation owners who went out of their way to make sure we were kept as safe as possible given the exceptional circumstances.  

Jane, United Kingdom

Iceland Full Circle Classic, August 2020

Very well planned trip!

We would definitely recommend Nordic visitor. It was very well planned and easy for us to simply enjoy ourselves and take in what Iceland has to offer! Thanks for organising our trip! During Covid times it was touch and go about whether we could actually go, but we did get there and it was amazing! 

Michelea, United States

Northern Lights Adventure in the Westfjords, February 2020

Flawless experience

Nordic Visitor made our entire experience flawless. From the planning and booking to the holiday itself. I cannot speak highly enough of our experience

Brenda, South Africa

Norway in a Nutshell® Classic - Winter, January 2020

Wonderful experience!

It's intimidating visiting a foreign country where you don't speak the language. Our fears were put to rest the moment we started our tour, the whole experience was just wonderful. Everything was wonderful, our tour was carefully planned and made the maximum use of our time.

Cindy, Switzerland

Iceland Ultimate Adventure, July 2020

Everything went super good!

Nordic Visitor is a great company and I definitely recommend booking with them. You may pay a bit more than if you would plan your trip yourself, but in my case, booking last minute and having no time to do my researches, I was really happy with this solution. Iceland is a very big country and you need to have some information before you get there. Nordic Visitor gave me all the important information and everything went super good!
