What people are saying

We don't like to brag about ourselves, so here are some nice things our travellers had to say.

Joshua, United States

Iceland Full Circle In Winter, November 2016

Stress free

One of the best holidays me and my friends went on. Everything was stress free and we enjoyed every minute of it.

Christina, United States

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!

Wendy, United States

Golden Circle and South Coast - Winter, December 2016

Wonderful

Thanks so much! We got to have exactly the vacation we wanted, and it was just wonderful!

Janet and Chris, Canada

Iceland Complete Classic, June 2016

We hope to return

This was a trip we dreamed about for quite a while. Nordic Visitor and Arnar made it all come true. Every question and request I had was addressed quickly and professionally. The trip was fantastic and we didn't have to worry about anything along the way, it was perfectly arranged for us. The accommodations were comfortable and exactly the kinds of places we would have booked on our own. We loved Iceland and hope to return someday.

Berendina and Detlef, Canada

Iceland Grand Tour, June 2016

Happy with the entire holiday experience

We were extremely happy with the service from Nordic Visitor. The amount of detail in the travel itinerary was more than excellent. The trip ran smoothly. There were no surprises or problems.

Lindsi, United States

Iceland Full Circle Classic, October 2016

Exceeded our expectations

Nordic Visitor exceeded our expectations for booking and travel in Iceland. We were well informed prior to even going on our trip about what to expect and how to plan for our travels. We were encouraged to ask questions about any concerns that we had, and we were given very timely responses in return. Documents were emailed to us in advance regarding highlights and suggested activities. We were even sent documents on how to prepare for unexpected weather conditions and driving the ring road. Everything was paid for in advance, and all we had to do was show our vouchers for taxi services, rental car, accommodations, etc. Nordic Visitor made sure that we were well prepared and gave us temporary mobile phone usage, and provided us with maps and atlases that highlighted our accommodations and suggested travel routes. We absolutely do plan to book many more vacations with Nordic Visitor, and would highly recommend their services.

Robert and Heather, Canada

Iceland Ring Road Express, June 2016

Amazing destination

We were very impressed with how smoothly everything went.  Nordic Visitor did an excellent job of organising our trip.  We just gave them our dates of arrival and departure and everything else was handled for us.  This allowed us to focus on sight-seeing rather than worrying about routes or accommodations.  You can only see so much in a week though, so I guess we'll have to come back to this amazing destination!  Although we have travelled a fair bit in various parts of the world, never have we had a vacation where, each night we sat down and listed off all of the things we'd never seen before-glaciers, geysers, volcanoes-hot springs- each day was filled with marvellous sights.

Naomi, United States

Romance Around Iceland, October 2016

We did not want to go home

This entire trip was perfection. No matter where we stayed, the staff were always friendly and helpful, the food was always delicious and the views were always stunning. I've already sent several friends and co-workers a link to the Nordic Visitor website after they expressed an interest in our trip. We had a fantastic experience. Our visit to Iceland had quite an impact on us, we did not want to go home and can't wait to visit again. Looking forward to booking other trips with you in the future!
