TOURS IN NORTH ICELAND

North Iceland is a totally different experience from the rest of the country — in fact, some parts look like another planet. From the moonlike volcanic terrain of the Lake Mývatn area to the charming city of Akureyri, an adventure in North Iceland awaits with a tour tailor-made by the local experts at Nordic Visitor.

TRAVEL TO NORTHERN ICELAND

Imagine snow-capped mountains, volcanic craters, strange lava formations, roaring waterfalls, rolling pastures full of grazing horses, idyllic seaside villages, whale-inhabited coastlines and steaming geothermal fields that look like the surface of Mars. That, in a nutshell, is what you can experience on a holiday in North Iceland.

North Iceland is home to many unusual attractions, many of which are rooted in Norse mythology. Here can visit Goðafoss (“Waterfall of the Gods”), Tröllaskagi (“The Peninsula of the Trolls”) and the Dimmuborgir (“Dark Castles”) lava formations, which according to folklore is the connection to the underworld. Of course, the biggest attractions here are the volcanic sites in the Lake Mývatn area, including the Hverir (Námafjall) geothermal area, the Krafla caldera and the Hverfell crater.

From the region’s largest city, Akureyri, it’s easy to visit all the jewels of North Iceland, including the whale watching village of Húsavík, the Mývatn Nature Baths and Dettifoss, Europe’s most powerful waterfall.

To explore North Iceland at your own pace, a self-drive itinerary is highly recommended. Don’t want to drive? Join a guided small group tour! You can also fly to Akureyri in under 45 minutes from the Reykjavik domestic airport. Although summer is the most popular travel season, you can visit at any time of year — a winter vacation in North Iceland allows you to experience the region’s top attractions in addition to the possibility of seeing the northern lights.

Each region of Iceland is unique — why not see them all? To drive around the entire Ring Road at a relaxed pace, we recommend a tour of 10 days or more.

Iceland Full Circle Classic, June 2019

The trip was excellent!

Overall the trip was excellent! I am glad to have come across Nordic Visitor online. Aside from the time savings, we had a much better travel experience than we would have if we'd tried to plan everything for ourselves.

Geoffrey Rosevear

South & West Iceland at Leisure, May 2019

Extremely happy

We were extremely happy with Nordic Visitor with our pretour communication with Perla and the information we received on arrival. All drivers were very good with airport pickup and hotel transfers to the rental car agency.

Nordic Visitor made it so easy!

Going to visit a different country that you have never been to can be overwhelming. Nordic Visitor made it so easy for my husband and I to travel to Iceland and have a wonderful time! Everything was mapped out for us and we could do what we wanted, but with guidance, so we were not scrambling around with no direction. What a beautiful place! You guys made our anniversary so special!!!! Thank you so very much!

As always, it was fantastic!

This is my third tour with Nordic Visitor. As always, it was fantastic. Many thanks, I will be back for sure!

Danielle Walker

South Iceland Classic, May 2019

This was the easiest trip I have ever gone on!

I absolutely loved the travel documents. It made the trip so easy and smooth. The packet was so informative and I loved the map to be able to see what was along our route so we could plan our stops along the route before hand. This was the easiest trip I have ever gone on. I've booked many trips through different travel agencies and none have ever gone this smooth. I wish you were everywhere so I'd never have to use another agency. (More of Europe, Africa, Australia South America, ect).
