I booked the 'Exotic Hideaways' package last winter for my wife and I for our honeymoon in May. We have both always wanted to visit Iceland and having just returned from our trip, I can say unequivocally it was everything we were expecting and more! From our driver who picked us up at the airport and went out of his way to make us feel welcome, to our 'at your own pace' itinerary and all the accommodations arranged for us along the way (which were virtually flawless!) - It all came together for an unforgettable honeymoon!
Perhaps it was because we arrived technically in the tail end of the off-season, but at times it felt like we had the entire country to ourselves! And what an AMAZING country it is!!! Waterfalls, Cliffs, Caves, Lava fields… each stop seemed to be more indescribably beautiful then the last.
With all the wedding planning and considering we've never been to Iceland before, I thought it best to leave the details of the honeymoon up to a professional… and I'm glad I did! I was understandably a little anxious putting so much of our trip in the hands of a company I only just stumbled across online, but in reading reviews on TripAdvisor and others I had a feeling Nordic Visitor would come through - and they did! Lárus was our travel consultant and did a good job responding to my emails in a timely manner and was even happy to accommodate with a few special requests. I will say email seems to be the preferred method of contact. I did try calling the office on one occasion but they asked kindly if I would mind calling back later because they were in the process of changing offices. I never did, but it was reassuming to know at least there was someone on the other line I could call up if I had an immediate question.
We chose one of the self-drive packages, which at first I was a little on the fence about but it
