We recommend making reservations in advance for Christmas dinner buffets in Reykjavik. We are happy to offer buffet suggestions on request.
You should bring some windproof/waterproof outerwear and plenty of warm layers. Although the winter climate in Iceland is generally mild compared to other northern European countries, the temperatures can drop below freezing at times.
The best months to experience the northern lights are October through April, with peak visibility from December through February.
Please note that the northern lights are a natural phenomenon, so we cannot guarantee sightings.
All accommodations and planned activities (as specified in the itinerary) will be pre-booked by Nordic Visitor. This is a self-guided tour, 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 between activities.
If you wish to join a small group escorted holiday, with the same guide leading each day’s activities, see our selection here.
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 working 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 booking and your remaining payment (if not paid in full). You will also receive more information about what to expect during your holiday.
