We recommend that all of our travellers read through the following information. You will learn what the tour includes, what to pack for your holiday and useful information about the activities included on the tour.
INFORMATION ABOUT OUR MULTI-DAY TOURS
All accommodation and planned activities (as specified in the itinerary) will be pre-booked by Nordic Visitor. This is a multi-day tour package with no dedicated tour guide for the duration of your stay. For each planned activity, you can expect a different tour operator and guide, and you will have free time in-between activities. Nordic Visitor works with a small group of trusted operators that the company has strong professional relationships with.
ADD-ON & OPTIONAL UPGRADES
Travellers can choose to add-on selected optional activities when booking online. Customers can also choose to upgrade bus tours to super jeep tours. It is also possible to add-on extra nights to packages along with customising the tours. Please contact us for prices and availability for 1 person on this tour.
THE HIGHLAND MOUNTAIN HUTS
The accommodation at the mountain hut is basic and our guests stay in private rooms with shared bathrooms & showers. The private rooms are small in size with bunk beds (double lower bunk and single upper bunk).
THE NORTHERN LIGHTS, DAYLIGHT HOURS & WEATHER CONDITIONS
The best months to experience the northern lights are September through March, with peak visibility from December through February. Please note that as the northern lights are a natural phenomenon, we cannot guarantee sightings even if the tour is operated.
Please be advised that daylight is limited in Iceland during the winter months, with about 4-5 hours of daylight from December to January.
Although the winter climate in Iceland is generally mild compared to other northern European countries, the temperature can drop below freezing at times. Please bring windproof and waterproof outerwear and plenty of warm layers. Please note that the programme is dependent upon weather and road conditions, and may be altered if conditions are not favourable. For information on weather conditions and daylight hours we recommend visiting our extensive Online Travel Guide.
In Iceland, the weather is part of the adventure. With that in mind, please note that the itinerary for Þórsmörk may need be adjusted by the guide according to weather or road conditions.
This tour requires good winter clothing for outdoor activities, especially since the weather in the Icelandic highlands can change quickly. You should bring insulated windproof/waterproof outerwear, good hiking boots and warm woollen/synthetic layers.
All bookings are charged 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. Therefore, conversions from ISK to other currencies will fluctuate from day to day.
AFTER BOOKING WITH NORDIC VISITOR
After booking your package with Nordic Visitor, you will be contacted within two business days by one of our travel consultants, who will serve as your dedicated contact person for all of your travel needs before, during and even after your holiday. Your travel consultant will provide you with details about your trip.
