View Photos View Map

Visit Iceland’s best-known sites with a private guide

This 4-day private tour is the perfect introduction to Iceland! Spend your days exploring the geysers, waterfalls, and volcanic landscapes of the Golden Circle, while enjoying long days of sunlight. This package offers a privately-guided tour of the classic Golden Circle and South Coast, giving you a much more personal experience than a large coach tour. Enjoy the countryside during the days while you have the convenience of Reykjavik in the evenings. The capital has all the cosmopolitan elements of a big city, including great restaurants, shops, museums, and nightlife.

Are you travelling in a group of 10 – 17 people? We can arrange this tour with transportation in a roomy mini-coach. Send us a request for details.

Tour Information

We recommend that all our travellers read through the following information about what the tour includes and useful information about the activities included on the tour.

ABOUT OUR PRIVATE TOURS
Let us help you make this the tour of your dreams, according to your unique needs and interests. This package can be customised with extra nights, optional activities and other changes to the itinerary. Contact us for details. All accommodation and planned activities (as specified in the itinerary) will be pre-booked by Nordic Visitor.

ACCOMMODATION AND ROOM TYPE
Our team of local travel experts at Nordic Visitor have compiled a list of wonderful hotels for your stay in Iceland. We carefully select hotels/guesthouses in Reykjavik and the countryside based on excellent ratings, personal experience and comfort. Single, double and triple rooms are available for our packages. Please note, that in Iceland our room types are based on European standard sizes. For instance, a double bed often consists of two single beds pushed together. Triple rooms include a double bed along with an extra bed, a rollaway or a sofa bed, and a single room is often smaller than the standard double.

ADD-ON OPTIONAL ACTIVITIES
Travellers can choose to add-on selected optional activities when booking online. It is also possible to add-on extra nights to packages along with customising the tours to client needs.

SAFETY, DAYLIGHT HOURS & WEATHER CONDITIONS
Please note that sightseeing is dependent on weather and road conditions and might need to be altered if conditions are not favourable. Please be advised that days are long in Iceland during the summer, with almost 24 hours of daylight at the summer solstice. It is advisable to bring a sleep mask as some find it difficult falling asleep at night.  For more information on weather conditions and daylight hours, we recommend visiting Nordic Visitor’s Online Travel Guide.

CURRENCY RATE
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 your travel needs before, during and even after your holiday.
