Before our arrival we received a fairly comprehensive information package in the mail including a large map of Iceland and detailed itinerary. On our arrival at the airport we were picked up by a taxi driver who had our vouchers for the hotels, car rental and ferry. The next day we were driven to the car rental agency, and with our GPS powered-up, away we went. It turned out to be two weeks of incredible scenery, learning and great food.
We recommend this trip and company. Me and my girlfriend drove around the country (12 days because we added some extra nights to the base trip) on a self drive tour booked through Nordic Visitor. We chose budget accommodation throughout and it was beyond excellent. The tour was flawlessly orchestrated by our NV agent. Wholeheartedly an amazing, unforgettable trip. The agent you are assigned is a local, ie.
It was brilliantly simple and well detailed (each voucher had contact numbers and addresses to your destinations). Put the information into the GPS you are provided with, and off you go. Need to call your accommodation or activity for more info or because you're arriving late.
NV provides a pre-paid cell phone to get in touch. We even used ours to just call taxis when we needed. NV flawlessly took care of the core details for us, the rest was our own adventure to do as we pleased.
If you want to see Iceland, even on shorter routes, NV knows what they are doing. Highly recommended because I would have wasted hours online trying to figure out each days accommodation, activity, etc on my own (especially in the more remote areas). Iceland lives in my heart now. Booking through NV allowed me to spend more time enjoying this beautiful country, and its wonderful people, without worrying about all the background booking details.

We wanted a 5-6 day trip taking in some superjeep experiences both from Reykjavik and up in the north around Akureyri as we didn't want large coach groups or anything too touristy. The Superjeep trip to the Eyjafjallajokull Glacier and black sand beaches south of the island was phenomenal, and as the other couple in the jeep had booked to do a glacier hike, the guide asked if we minded combining the two trips which would prolong the day by a couple of hours which we were all thrilled about, and boy was it a great decision.
Despite rain the six of us did the glacier hike which was amazing fun. An arctic char lunch followed by bouncing up and down sand dunes on the black sand beaches was excellent. Up in Akureyri we were booked in to Hotel Kea which was lovely, and this was a good job as we ended up having to stay an extra night due to a snow blizzard which closed Akureyri airport. Our day trip to Myvatn (courtesy of Saga tours) was the highlight of our trip and picked perfectly for us by Nordic Visitor.
Finally, the part of our holiday we had been waiting for: Jarbodin Nature Baths. These geothermal pools were stunning. With a little snow falling, perfect blue sunshine, and snow capped mountains as a view, my friend and I had the most lovely soak in the warm water, almost in splendid isolation.
Nothing like the crowds at The Blue Lagoon which we had heard from some people to avoid in favour of Jarbodin. And they we Marci, United States The Golden Triangle of Scandinavia, March 2013 We had a wonderful time I was very impressed with the service and everything went smoothly.

I loved not having to think about how or when we were getting to another country because all of the details were taken care of by Nordic Visitor.Have already recommended NV once from our Iceland trip and will absolutely recommend again. Christoph was also wonderful- did a fantastic job in customizing the trip for us (combination of 2 trips), and was also quick to respond and communicate via email. We will definitely book again- the only negative is that the time went by too quickly.
We have just arrived back from a most memorable and enjoyable trip which you organised for us. Right from the beginning of our email correspondence, we have been impressed by the quality, dedication and effort you have put into making our tour of Scotland enjoyable.
Thank you for going beyond what I would normally expect. The tour and the associated paperwork and maps which you arranged were all marvellous and a good representation of Scotland.
Whilst I thought that two days on Skye would be far too long, it was just right. Thank you again for your assistance and I shall endeavour through trip advisor and friends to spread the word about your wonderful company. Nordic appear to be professional, aware of the best locations to visit and stay. The suggested tour is well balanced between places to see and covering the distance.
We were very impressed with the standard of accommodation given that we only booked "standard". We're just on the train back from Edinburgh, and wanted to say a big thank you for all your help organising our trip.
We had an amazing time travelling round Scotland, and all the organization couldn't have been better. Everything went so smoothly - all the information you provided was so detailed and really helped us make the most of our trip. And all the accommodation was just amazing!. We've had such a great time, thank you again for all your help. I will definitely recommend Nordic Visitor to my friends.
We were glad to have the printed maps supplied by Nordic Visitor. We were very pleased with the decision to up-grade from 'Standard' to 'Superior' accomodation. The 'Commodore Class' on the Ferry was very welcome.
The car was upgraded as well, fantastic. We loved staying at the Basecamp Trapper's hotel. The place was really interesting and the staff very nice.
