Reviews

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

Stress-free trip

The tour guide was excellent and accommodating. Everything was taken care of which made the trip stress-free. All of the tour info that was provided to us by the shuttle was extremely helpful to know what to do and where to go. We plan on booking other trips through Nordic visitor. Also, the support was very quick via email to help with all the questions I had.

Wonderful experience

My vacation to Iceland/Greenland was beyond all of my expectations.  The drivers, tours, hotels, meals and especial our tour guide Rakel was wonderful. I was mesmerized by the beauty of your country and the kindness of the Iceland people. i would recommend your company and country to many people as I already have. Thank you for a wonderful experience. 

The trip was just perfect

I went as a solo traveller for my birthday but everyone in the group was just so friendly that I was never trully alone. The tour guide was excelent, great driver, lots of knowledge about Iceland and extremely friendly! Thank you! 

Exceptional

Our guide was exceptional, she was very knowledgeable, and fun company. She included all sorts of wonderful "extra stops" which made the tour very special.

Lovely country

Truly believe the best way to see and experience your lovely country is to do it with a guide. It's the best way to get to learn cultures, traditions etc.  We were so fortunate to have all that and more with our lovely guide.

Enjoyed the small group atmosphere

We loved our entire package with Nordic Visitor and our tour guide was fantastic. We enjoyed the small group atmosphere very much (there were 6 of us). We saw several tour groups of many, many more and would not be interested in a larger group, so the Nordic Visitor tour suited us perfectly. 

Accommodation

Sleep soundly, in the accommodation type of your choice, and wake up ready to enjoy another day of exploration.
