After settling in, take the opportunity to explore the vibrant city centre at you own pace. The main downtown area offers a variety of shops, museums and galleries—all within an easy walk. Laugavegur, Reykjavík’s main street, offers an abundance of excellent restaurants and cafés, as well as bars and clubs for those who want to experience the renowned Reykjavík nightlife.

    Start the day by picking up your rental car before taking in some of the best known attractions in the south of Iceland. The first leg of your journey is along the south coast, with a stop at the fairy tale-like Seljalandsfoss waterfall—the only one of its kind in Iceland where you can walk behind the cascade on a footpath!* For those who are more adventurous we recommend stopping by the hidden waterfall in the canyon, known as Gljúfrabúi, located near Seljalandsfoss. Further along you can visit the magnificent 60 metre free-falling Skógafoss waterfalls in Skógar. From there, the journey takes you past the beautiful Eyjafjöll mountain range.

    Spend the night in Kirkjubæjarklaustur area.

Marvel at the region's unique beauty by exploring the many interesting hiking trails, including a short journey to the splendid Svartifoss waterfall. In this area, you can also embark on a glacier walk or try your hand at ice-climbing with an optional guided tour.* Travel back to your accommodation along the South Coast for the evening.

Reviews

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

Impressed

We were very impressed with Nordic Visitor. Communication before the visit was very good and the experience went entirely as planned. The itinerary was great and we saw a lot of the south coast in a small amount of time. We would love to come back and see more of Iceland one day.

Could not be happier

I could not be happier with this company and would highly recommend it. When we first starting seeking help from local travel agencies in Canada, we were not getting anywhere and no one seemed to want to put in the time to help us plan. Upon finding Nordic Visitor, we were immediately put in touch with Helga, who made the process easy and fun, answering questions within 24 hours and offering great suggestions throughout our planning. When arriving in Iceland everything went very smoothly. 

Very well organized

The booking process was great. Klara was very kind and answered our questions right away and also provided us with the needed information for us to decide which tours we wanted to do while on our trip.  Overall, the trip was very well organized and we never felt confused or lacking of information while we were in Iceland.

Had a great time

Great communication and all very easy and relaxing. Had a great time. Thank you.

Trip of a lifetime

This was the trip of a lifetime. It surpassed our expectations. We love Iceland - Mother Nature at her best. Every turn had a new adventure and we just didn't want it to end. Your company did a fabulous job in giving us travel options and lining everything up for our arrival.  I have used other travel agencies and I only wish they were as professional as you. Thank you for such a great time in your country.

We really enjoyed our trip

Just wonderful! We really enjoyed our trip and credit Nordic Visitor for such an amazing stay! Thank you again!
