Your guide will act as a driver and you’ll benefit from their in-depth knowledge of Iceland along the way. We carefully select local guides with years of experience that come highly recommended. They’ll share with you their love of their country, stories and historical knowledge as well as recommendations.

Our guides always have a trick up their sleeves to surprise you and make your experience in Iceland extra special.

If you add extra nights to your stay before or after the scheduled trip, we’ll rearrange your transfers to fit your new itinerary.

Due to the nature of this tour and activities included, it’s not recommended for families with young children. That said, it is suitable for well-travelled, active children of 12 years or older. If in doubt, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

To make sure you and your fellow travellers have a comfortable journey, we need to limit the size and amount of luggage in the bus. 

Each guest can bring one suitcase or large bag that can be stored in the back of the minibus and one smaller item (e.g., a backpack or daypack) to keep inside the van for daily essentials like camera, wallet, medications and so forth. Unfortunately carry-on suitcases (cabin bags) are too large to store in the van’s overhead racks. 

If you have any questions about luggage your Nordic Visitor travel consultant will be able to assist you.

On your guided group tour, you’ll stay in accommodation that’s been hand-picked by our local Iceland travel experts. We’ve partnered with local businesses and selected hotels and guesthouses based on excellent ratings, comfort and our personal experience. 

You can view the detailed list of hotels for this trip under the accommodation tab.

During the booking steps, you can choose a single or double room. Please note that in Iceland room types are based on European standard sizes, which means they are smaller than in North America. 

For example, a double room often consists of 2 single beds pushed together. Twin rooms are 2 separate single beds. Triple rooms are not available for this tour. If your group contains 3 or more people, please contact us for booking assistance.

This itinerary includes a few walks in nature. This means you must be prepared and able to walk between 3–5 kilometres (1.8–3 miles) daily. You also need to be able to carry your own luggage when boarding the minibus and at each hotel.

Only you can pick the best time to visit Iceland for your trip. It’ll depend on how much time you have to explore, what you want to see in Iceland and any events you might like to attend.

In summer, June to August, you’ll have milder temperatures and longer daylight hours, compared to the winter. This is ideal for outdoor excursions and sightseeing. 

If you’d like to experience the top attractions with fewer visitors around then you could book your summer trip in May or September. These shoulder season months have more tour and attraction availability.

The winter months are also popular, but generally quieter, apart from the Christmas holiday season. This is the ideal time to try to spot the northern lights.

Find out what annual Icelandic events and festivals are on in our travel guide. Or read more about the best time to visit Iceland on our blog.

Because of its northerly location close to the Arctic Circle, Iceland enjoys long days throughout the summer. 

Around the summer solstice, from early June until mid-July, you’ll experience almost 24 hours of daylight. This phenomenon, known as the midnight sun, occurs within the Arctic Circle and is when the sun doesn’t fully set below the horizon. 

These long daylight hours give you plenty of time to drive around and explore. That said, you may want to pack a sleeping mask if you are a light sleeper or tend to wake up at dawn. 

Find out what the daylight hours will be during the month of your visit in this guide to time and daylight in Iceland.

Summer in Iceland is mild and boasts the best weather and longest days of the year. You can expect temperatures of around 10–15°C (50–59°F), with potential lows of 5°C (41°F) and highs of 25°C (77°F). 

It’s good to know that weather conditions are changeable in Iceland, so you should come ready for sun, rain and wind. For more information on the local climate, read the page Iceland weather conditions

Please note that sightseeing is dependent on weather and road conditions. This means that your itinerary might need to be altered if these conditions are not favourable during your visit.

Even in summertime Iceland’s climate can feel cool. As you’ll probably spend a lot of time outdoors, you should be ready for a variety of weather conditions.

Here is a recommended summer packing list for your trip to Iceland:

  • Durable insulated jacket
  • Rain gear, including sturdy wind and waterproof layers, like a jacket and trousers
  • Robust walking shoes with a good grip
  • Mid-layers such as a fleece or woollen jumper
  • A few pairs of warm hiking socks
  • Hat, gloves and scarf

  • Electronic equipment such as smartphone, external powerpack, and travel adapters

As you’ll be travelling as part of a guided group tour, your itinerary for this portion of your trip is set. But you can still customise other parts of your package.

For instance, you could add extra nights in Reykjavík before or after the guided portion of your trip. This will give you more time to explore the Icelandic capital city at your own pace. You can add these additional days while booking your package online. 

You might also like to add optional excursions and day trips to your itinerary. On each tour page, you’ll see recommended optional activities such as whale watching, spas and food tours. 

Please get in touch with us if you have something specific in mind or have any questions about customising your guided group tour.

When you arrive in Iceland, you’ll receive a welcome bag with hard copies of your itinerary, attraction and tour vouchers, the Nordic Visitor Iceland Travel Guide and more.

So when do you check in? And what can you expect upon landing in Keflavík?

After picking up your luggage, you will be greeted by a driver holding a sign with your name in the arrivals hall. The driver will hand over your welcome package with hard copies of your travel documents. You’ll then be driven to your hotel in Reykjavík.

Check-in times vary between hotels and guesthouses, but it normally starts between 2 PM and 4 PM. 

You are welcome to request an early check-in for an additional fee. Although this isn’t always available, you’ll be able to store your luggage at the hotel so you can start exploring before check-in. Please contact your travel consultant well in advance of your arrival if you’d like an early check-in.

When you depart may depend on the time of your return flight. Check out early if you’re heading to the airport for a morning flight. On the other hand, if you’re flying home later in the day, you might like to enjoy a leisurely day or visit one more attraction.

You will need to check out from your room, but will be able to store your luggage at the hotel reception. Simply return later to collect your bags before catching your transfer to the airport.

All bookings are billed in Icelandic Króna (ISK), the official currency of Iceland. 

Prices displayed in other currencies are indicative only and based on the daily exchange rate as issued by the Central Bank of Iceland. This means conversions from ISK to other currencies will fluctuate from day to day.


We don’t like to brag, so we’ll let our happy customers do it for us.

It couldn't have gone smoother

We found Nordic Visitor's Complete Iceland to be both fun and informative. We liked the pace of the tour. All the stops were so interesting and beautiful. It was fun to learn about the life in Iceland. We appreciated Reynir's professionalism and kindness in handling our Covid situation. Our second tour guide, Jon Paul, was also very hospitable, sociable and engaging. Our days with both tour guides were delightful. The trip went very well and it couldn't have gone smoother.

Great service

You were responsive, competent, always on the ball, able to walk me through any concerns, notwithstanding being 16,000km away. You were without doubt the easiest tour folk I have ever dealt with. Your documentation was most useful and appropriate

Excellent tour!

I am so glad I went to Iceland with Nordic Visitor. The Complete Iceland tour was the only tour out of 47 I researched to include the Westfjords. I've been to New Zealand twice for a month, but my three weeks in Iceland was even better! I'm a geology enthusiast and you can't do better than Iceland. The enumerable mountains, cones, waterfalls, and lava flows were enchanting. And then add in the incredible itinerary, comfortable tour bus with Wi-Fi, and guide (Reynir), and it made for a magical trip for my four friends and me. I say this even though I fell into the glacier lagoon outflow and ruined my phone for the rest of the trip. So glad we stayed before and after in Reykjavík as it is a lovely, walkable city. Keep up the excellent work!

Good tour

This was a good tour of a fabulous country. The beauty and majesty of Iceland is incredible, don't miss it. 

Well organised tour!

Everything was so well organised! It was a magnificent tour!

Exceeded our expectations!

The tour exceeded our expectations! Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and open to questions. He went above and beyond to make the experience excellent for everyone on our tour. He was very aware of how long it would take to drive to different places so he kept us on schedule without feeling rushed. The tour of the Westfjords was the highlight for us. The guided boat tour to Vigur Island was a definite highlight. It's important for the tour company to explain to potential travellers that this tour does involve some walking over uneven terrain/surfaces. We had a fellow traveller on our tour with extremely poor mobility and this made it difficult for our guide and the other travellers to accommodate her need to always sit up front, to have the closest accommodation room, etc.


Relax in spacious, characterful hotels that are highly rated by visitors and handpicked by local travel experts.
