“Lovely trip to Iceland by Nordic Visitor!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I traveled through Nordic Visitor for a full circle Iceland Activity Tour. We could not have asked for a better trip. The wonderful reviews helped us decide to book with Nordic Visitor and I wanted to share the positives of our vacation planned through Nordic Visitor. My husband and I had never traveled out of the United States before and wanted a trip that was well planned by locals. I feel that our tour allowed us to see much of the beautiful country.
Iceland in general, is a very travel friendly country and I recommend a trip there to anyone who appreciates vast interesting landscapes, friendly people, and a whole lot more. Thank you Nordic Visitor for the wonderful vacation!

“Best trip ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

Just got back from a 3 day trip to Iceland with my partner and we truly enjoyed it. We booked the Northern lights city break with Nordic Visitor and we cannot fault the service. We received the trip planner a week before the departure, on arrival were promptly picked, the voucher service worked well and we had an amazing stay overall. Iris Angela we cannot thank you enough.

“Excellent recommendations and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We had an excellent Iceland experience with a lot of help from Nordic Visitor Tours. Having never been to Iceland, we wanted to see as much as possible in the three full days that we were there. I sent a request to Nordic Visitor asking for recommendations and received a list of must see options and tour recommendations. We booked all three days and received our step by step instructions very quickly. We were picked up at our hotel each day and had the most amazing experiences. Two of the days were booked with Iceland Adventures and the super jeep. These were two of the best days of my life. We felt like celebrities! Everywhere we stopped, other tourists were taking photos of our vehicle. We were taken up on a glacier, through rivers and off road to places that are not usually seen by tourists. We would especially like to thank our super jeep guide, Isak. Use Nordic Visitor to help with your trip to Iceland and you will have the trip of a lifetime!

“Problem free 'Full Circle Tour'”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Planning for Iceland was always going to be an issue for my partner and I due to our rather hectic work schedules, fortunately Nordic Visitor took care of everything for us.

It started with a quote that ended up being cheaper than three other competitors we had contacted, for pretty much exactly the same hotels and services. They were very good at tweaking parts of the trip to cater for our needs and went the extra mile in making sure all was the way we wanted it to be.

The planning which we received prior to departure, and again on arrival, was thorough and easy to comprehend. Times, schedules and information provided was all well documented and meant we had little to do in the run up to our trip.

We had opted for the self-drive full circle tour of the island and thanks to all the information could easily plan our days. The only downside is you do not realise until in Iceland how slow going from A to B can be. The 1 road is certainly not your average motorway, so you need to give yourself plenty of time to get places. It may be a bit confusing to novices who hope to see everything listed in the information booklets.

We were particularly happy about the customer care. Although we are a very self sufficient couple, use to tackling more treacherous terrains, it was really nice that Nordic Visitor took time to check-in with us to see that all was going to plan. The mobile phone given to us came in very handy too.

Overall, the only slight problem we faced was with the car rental company for a tiny chip in the windshield which cost us the full franchise... not something Nordic Visitor could do much about (freak accidents happen... on road 1, three miles out of Reykjavik of all places!) - maybe a heads up to visitors that they really ought to take extra insurance (thankfully we did, otherwise a new windshield would have cost us near a 1000$...)

In conclusion I would not hesitate to recommend Nordic Visitor to other first time goers to Iceland. Generally speaking everything was spot on.

Special thanks to Iris Angela, our travel agent at Nordic Visitor.

“Iceland - Who Knew!? 7 Day Express Iceland.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

It was the most amazing trip we've ever had. Jelena at Nordic Visitor made it flawless and catered it to our likings.
It all started at the Airport where we were greeted by a very nice gentleman who had a sign with our names on it. He drove us to our hotel at Reykjavik, told us stories about Iceland and of course gave us our travelling package. A very nice blue bag, that we used through our trip to keep our maps and memories together, had a big map with our route and things to see highlighted, a beautiful book with all the places to see, tons of good information, itinerary with addresses and phone numbers for hotels and a telephone, that was very useful, when our car broke down away from the main road.
When we had a car trouble, Nordic Visitor 24/7 service was there to help on Sunday afternoon. We were back on the road in less than two hours. Local mechanic was nice and we got to try some hot dogs at the local gas station, which you need to try, hot dogs are the best ever!!
You also need to try Icelandic Burgers, they are great!! Buy them fresh almost at any gas station. Local meat soup, meat products and charr are great. Keep in mind that smoked means really smoked, almost like chewing on a burning stick. Everything worth a try though. Local milk products are flavorful and awesome!!
There are many things to see in Iceland and we wish we would spend more time there. We needed at least couple more days to really enjoy places that we loved. The scenery changes every 100 ft and all of it is beautiful. Iceland is very photogenic!!
Renting 4x4 is a good idea, it gets you places easier. The roads are not really what you are used for in the USA.
Dress in layers. It's very important. Next to waterfalls it feels like heavy rain. Can get really windy and it blows right through you.
If you need some private time with your very close friend or partner this is a perfect place to go. Adventure and quite time together. Perfect if you want to be alone too.
