ABOUT OUR PRIVATE TOURS
Let us help you make this the tour of your dreams, according to your specific needs and interests. This package can be customised with extra nights, optional activities and other changes to the itinerary. Please 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 self-drive 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 EXTRAS
Travellers can choose to add-on selected optional extras when booking online. It is also possible to add extra nights to packages along with customising the tours to client needs. Please note, the optional extras are not private unless otherwise stated.
