What our customers say


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

Everything was meticulously organised, our travel consultant was on hand for any queries [...] The company took all the stress out of a normal touring holiday as everything went like clockwork from the airport pick up to the drop back at the end.
We have just got back from our two week self drive trip around Iceland. The trip was perfect, such an experience and so well organised, professional and detailed by NV. […] So helpful in sorting things and amending the whole holiday after booking when Icelandair changed the flight day. Any questions we had were answered and resolved.
We initially considered trying to book this trip ourselves, but I'm extremely glad we didn't: there's no way we'd have been able to match the experience which Nordic Visitor's local knowledge was able to build for us. We'd hoped for this to be 'the holiday of a lifetime' and Nordic Visitor (and Iceland) certainly delivered
We just completed Nordic Visitor's 16 day Complete Norway tour. It was perfect […] our Nordic Visitor travel coordinator incorporated the destinations and activities we were interested in, patiently answered questions, and provided options that significantly enhanced the trip. We were delighted with it all.
