On a trip to Iceland, you could discover the raw nature that the Land of Fire and Ice is so famous for. Imagine seeing volcanoes, glaciers, geysers and waterfalls. Breathe in the fresh, clean air as you roam the wild landscapes.

Embark on thrilling activities in Iceland like snowmobiling over a glacier, or snorkelling between two tectonic plates. You could even trek or ride in a helicopter to the erupting volcano at Fagradalsfjall, which is considered safe to visit. 

Or simply unwind in natural hot springs for a totally relaxing experience. Stroll on black sand beaches and quietly admire the majesty of Iceland’s soul-stirring scenery.

Whatever your perfect Iceland trip looks like, you can rely on our local travel experts to plan it for you. Take a look at our Special Offers for Iceland to enjoy excellent discounts on selected tour packages.

Your dedicated travel consultant will inform you of any changes in national guidelines, should they occur.

If necessary, your travel consultant will make adjustments to your itinerary. They may need to amend the route or make some other changes. You would not be charged any additional fees if rearrangements had to be made.

Should they need to make changes to your itinerary, your personal consultant will do everything to make sure you still have a special travel experience.

Your personal travel consultant will explain all the details of your tour before you book. Afterwards, if any changes must be made to your itinerary due to Covid-19, they will contact you to make you aware of this.

Rest assured you will not make any financial losses if this is the case. You’ll receive appropriate upgrades or alternative tour options to make up for any changes. For example, if an activity that you paid for is no longer available due to Covid-19, you will be given alternative activities to choose from instead.

If you have cancellation insurance with us, your payment is protected. 

Should you test positive for Covid-19 more than 72 hours before your trip, you can rebook your tour, on one occasion, without incurring any change fees. Or you can receive a refund of 80% of the total value of your booking, and a 20% travel credit towards a future tour with Nordic Visitor.

Should you test positive for Covid-19 with less than 72 hours before your trip, you'll receive a refund of 50% and the remaining 50% will be held as travel credit.

Don’t hesitate to contact your Nordic Visitor travel consultant if you feel unwell in the lead up to your trip. They will do everything they can to support you during this time.

Read the details of our cancellation insurance in our Book With Confidence terms.

If you do not have cancellation insurance with us, normal booking terms apply and we recommend you check with your private travel insurance provider. 

What our customers say

 

Discover what our amazing clients, who travelled during the pandemic, thought about their experience with Nordic Visitor.

What a fantastic trip, to such a unique and beautiful island! […] All the arrangements worked perfectly, and the detailed and personalised itinerary prepared by Nordic Visitor was much appreciated. We also loved all the hotels and guesthouses that we stayed in, and the food was uniformly great. Everywhere felt very Covid safe and conscious, and the arrival and departure formalities were fine. Fantastic trip!

- Ian, visited Iceland 
This was one of our best trips ever and the amount of research and detail they provided us in hard copies was worth every penny. We knew this trip was going to be full of once in a lifetime experiences and it simply was easier to have them plan it without worrying about the day to day schedule. […] they were available 24/7 which gave me great comfort in knowing I could reach them anytime throughout our trip. Do not hesitate in using Nordic Visitor!

- Melanie, visited Iceland
Nordic Visitor had the whole package figured out and it worked like clockwork […] when we needed to change the pickup details of our last day (twice), they were very quick and responsive to help us. […] I would use this company again in a heartbeat.
