This past summer we spent a week in Iceland following the "South at Leisure" self-drive tour arranged by Thordis of Nordic Visitor. The entire experience was first-rate. Every accommodation that was arranged for us was beautiful, every meal was amazing, all of the people we met were friendly and accommodating, and every day was memorable. We not only enjoyed the sightseeing, we got to ride horses, hike and snowmobile on glaciers, and snorkle in Silfra. We also indulged in "underwater massages" at the Blue Lagoon. The weather was cool and rainy most days, but the sunlight lasted all night, so every day felt like two days of vacation. I highly recommend visiting Iceland, especially since it is only a 5-hour flight from NY, so you don't even have to worry about jet lag! I also recommend using Nordic Visitors--they were there for us every step of the way--even when we changed our minds or changed our schedules.

My husband and I have travelled through many parts of the world and we agreed that our trip to Iceland was one of the best. We have highly recommended Nordic Visitor and Iceland to friends, family and work colleagues. We had excellent help in planning the trip. The accomodations throughout Iceland were located in beautiful locations, easy to find, very clean and new. Food was excellent, as good as any European cuisine. Given the quality of food, prices were not high. And now for the best part: the scenery was varied and beautiful (we are Canadians with high standards), there were dozens of activities for those who love sports and the outdoors, for people of any age and families. Roads were excellent, no traffic jams, directions made everything easy to find. We did not have to worry about crime or witness poverty. The people were really friendly, and most spoke excellent english. Our trip was the last 10 days of July and we had good weather for the trip with only one day of rain.

In August, we completed the Iceland Complete tour, arranged by Thordis of Nordic Visitor in Reykjavik. What a wonderful experience! We were met at the airport in Keflavik by the most hospitable, informative cab driver in the world, which was a great start. Rental car, GPS and cell phone were also arranged for us. Accommodations were delightful. Part of the reason for that is the widely varying style of each place -- from elegant, to rustic, and always scenic.
We loved that an itinerary was provided, with suggestions of what to see and do each day, but we had complete freedom to decide which we wanted to do. Because of the great flexibility, we often had the opportunity to discover unexpected delights, like a wonderful horse show on a Sunday afternoon! When we returned our car in Reykjavik, there was a huge festival going on, and many streets (including the one our hotel was on) was blocked, but the creative young man from the rental agency was able to deliver us to within a block, and we were soon able to join the party. A great trip arranged by a great travel agent and company. Any Nordic trip we plan in the future will have us contacting Nordic Visitor!

We just completed our Drive It Ourselves Tour of Norway. We added 5 extra nights to the standard 12 night tour and found that we needed all of them to see and do all that was available. The itinerary was well thought out and gave us a thorough look at central and southern Norway. The rental car was acceptable and Avis upgraded us at no extra cost. All the hotels were above our expectations. We rated all of them 4 or 5 and we have seen a lot of hotels in 26 years of travel. The hotels were all in the center of town and within walking distance of most attractions. The breakfasts were varied and set us up for the whole day. We highly recommend Nordic 'Visitor.

Nordic Visitor arranged a Grand Tour of Iceland for us (a couple about 60) over 17 days in late May and early June of 2012. From the very beginning we got individual attention from a dedicated consultant based in Reykjavik (thank you, María) and a tour itinerary that took in all the places that we wished to visit, including a night on the island of Flatey (recommended).

The arrangements were flawless; we were collected from the airport, given our pack of travel vouchers, and driven to our first hotel. Then the next day we were collected again and taken to pick up our hire car, all of which went very smoothly. Nordic Visitor lent us a mobile phone, which was comforting to have but which in the event we didn't need. The car came with an excellent satellite navigation device, which we certainly did need, and used all the time!

We opted for the more expensive end of the accommodation, and were very happy with the rooms Nordic Visitor secured for us.

Iceland was wonderful; we were lucky with the weather and so had every chance to enjoy our trip. Top highlights not to be missed were the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, a glacier hike at Skaftafell, the wildlife (mostly birds, but an arctic fox too) at Mývatn, and a spectacularly good whale watch tour from Húsavík. We were unable to drive far into the highlands, though, because it was still early in the summer, and some of the roads were still closed.

Overall, we couldn't have wished for better from Nordic Visitor. They gave us a real sense of personal service, we knew that they would have done their best had there been any problems for us, but mostly because of their meticulous planning, there were none.
