For more information, we strongly recommend taking a few minutes to read through our guide to driving in Iceland. Additionally, when you arrive on your tour, you’ll receive a brochure telling you more about driving in Iceland.

Because of its northerly location close to the Arctic Circle, Iceland enjoys long days throughout the summer. 

Around the summer solstice, from early June until mid-July, you’ll experience almost 24 hours of daylight. This phenomenon, known as the midnight sun, occurs within the Arctic Circle and is when the sun doesn’t fully set below the horizon. 

These long daylight hours give you plenty of time to drive around and explore. That said, you may want to pack a sleeping mask if you are a light sleeper or tend to wake up at dawn. 

Find out what the daylight hours will be during the month of your visit in this guide to time and daylight in Iceland.

Reviews

We don’t like to brag, so we’ll let our happy customers do it for us.

Very happy with the level of organisation and information

I was very happy with the level of organisation and information that we were given for our trip. I loved that we got to keep a book that represented the sites visited on our trip. The big map with the route and sites to visit marked on it was also appreciated. We only needed to call the office once during our trip to change the itinerary and Larus was very accommodating. I would definitely use Nordic Visitor again.

So many natural wonders

You have a very beautiful country with wonderful friendly people to deal with. There are so many natural wonders to see and experience and we loved it all, a true nature lover's paradise. We were impressed by the cleanliness of the country, which shows pride in your environment. Ever person we met and spoke with, were so helpful and not only interested in talking proudly of their home, but took interest in us as well. Thank you for making our holiday very memorable.

Nothing was ever a problem

We cannot speak too highly of the quality of service, attention to detail and the ongoing follow up and support provided by Margret. She is sensational and we would always encourage any friends to request her services. We travel extensively and have never previously experienced such wonderful and mindful support. Nothing was ever a problem

Amazing adventure

Our travel agent, Kristin, feels like an old friend now. I emailed her constantly with questions before the trip, and she answered every one with details. I am amazed how well she listened to what we wanted to do and see during our visit and set us up to do it all! Our accomodations were excellent and the tours were top notch. We will let our friends know about your travel service as many of them are curious about our trip. Thank you for an amazing adventure on your magical island.

Nordic Visitor puts their cusomers first

What a wonderful experience! Nordic Visitor (Sigfus and the Nordic staff) did a wonderful job in anticipating all our needs/wants. And, when problems arose, they promptly and kindly answered the emails that I sent and helped put my mind at ease/answered my questions. You can definitely tell that Nordic Visitor puts their customers first!! You can also tell that Nordic Visitor has a good relationship with all the companies (hotels, excursion vendors, car service rental car, etc.) they deal with because there were absolutely no issues with the vouchers and all reservations hotel/excursions were honored. I will happily recommend your company to all my friends ...and strangers too!!

I will definitely recommend Nordic Visito

I wanted to say a big thankyou for helping me organise this trip at such short notice. I had done no research before I arrived due to the holiday being organised at the last minute and yet it didn't matter as everything was so well organised. The documentation (book with all the sights and itinerary) that was provided was perfect and in fact I didn't need to use my lonely planet. The map which you highlighted with my route was my life saver and made driving around so easy. The mobile phone, MBB device and GPS were also useful and made me feel safe and connected the whole trip. I would not hesitate to use your services again and if any of my friends ask me who to use in Iceland I will definitely recommend Nordic Visitor. Thank you again loved my holiday and it wouldn't have been possible without your great service.
