TRAVELLING TO ICELAND IN APRIL

Visiting Iceland in April lets you experience the quieter side of the country. As it is still winter, there's lighter traffic for driving, fewer visitors at the famous sites and more availability of accommodations around the country. Yet the city centre of Reykjavik stays lively during April, with an abundance of cafes, bars, restaurants, museums, shops, galleries and thermal swimming pools.

April has a good balance of daylight and darkness, giving travellers ample time for sightseeing and activities during the day and chances to see the northern lights at night. Even with the fickle April weather (that can sometimes feel like all four seasons in one day), you can experience just about all of Iceland’s top attractions: waterfalls, glaciers, hot springs, lava fields, geothermal baths and more.

Short breaks in Reykjavik with pre-planned guided day tours are popular at this time of year, as are week-long road trips in South and West Iceland. With 10 days or more, it’s also possible to drive around the entire Ring Road in April. Don’t want to drive in wintry conditions? Small group tours with local guides are another great idea for experiencing Iceland’s countryside and northern lights in April.

Northern Lights City Break, November 2017

Best travel experiences by far

I had such a great timeline of my best travel experiences by far. thank you!

Lindsay, United States

Winter Highlights, October 2016

Easy from start to finish

Nordic Visitor made everything easy from start to finish, but better than that, the tour was stunningly beautiful and our guide took us to off-the-itinerary and off-the-beaten path waterfalls and canyons that really highlighted the beauty of Iceland and made us feel like we were getting a special, secret treat we'd never have found on our own.

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!

Massively exceeded my expectations

Overall this experience massively exceeded my expectations. I will be leaving many reviews as soon as possible and will absolutely use this company again.

South Iceland at Leisure - Winter, December 2016

One of the best short get-aways I have ever done

One of the best short get-aways I have ever done. The arrangements by the "Nordic Visitor" Team was superb.  Good hotels, reasonable distances to travel each day, leaving enough time to explore even with the limited daylight in late December.

No doubt in using Nordic Visitor again

Larus made the whole experience of organising the holiday very enjoyable.  We are not seasoned travellers but this experience has given me no doubt in using Nordic Visitor again to book a holiday in the future to another Nordic destination.

 

Joshua, United States

Stress free

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

Lisa, United States

South Iceland at Leisure - Winter, January 2017

Professionalism of every aspect of the trip was remarkable!

The trip was absolutely amazing and we had the time of our lives.  Everything that Nordic Visitor arranged went perfectly and we had no issues whatsoever.  The organization and professionalism of every aspect of the trip was remarkable!  Can't praise Nordic Visitor and Hanna Lara, in particular, enough!
