ICELAND TOURS IN MAY

Get ahead of the peak travel season by visiting Iceland in May, at the very start of summer. Longer daylight for maximum sightseeing, gorgeous late-night sunsets, abundant outdoor activities, mild weather and lighter Ring Road traffic are just a few of the highlights of a trip to Iceland in May.

TRAVEL TO ICELAND IN MAY

May is the start of the summer travel season in Iceland. Yet unlike the peak tourism period of June to August, visiting Iceland in May means lighter traffic for driving, fewer crowds at popular sites and better availability of accommodations. And with mild temperatures, May is a great month for road trips, hiking and a wide variety of guided day tours.

As the sun sets later and later each night until the 'midnight sun' phenomenon peaks at the summer solstice, a trip to Iceland in May promises plenty of daylight for navigating and sightseeing. You’ll be surprised by how many attractions you can experience in a day, with natural attractions such as waterfalls, glaciers, hot springs, volcanic sites, geothermal baths and more. Though many of these unique highlights are accessible with short 3- to 5-day tours in Reykjavik, May is a fabulous time to explore the whole island with a self-drive tour of 7-10 days or more around the Ring Road.

Want to see the northern lights? 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

Iceland Ring Road Express, June 2017

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.
