What our customers say


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

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.

- Eric, visited Iceland in 2021
We had such an amazing holiday! First time booking a self-drive holiday, but we were put at easy with such great organisation and communication from our very own travel consultant. […] The journey was well planned out, the itinerary was amazing! 

- Alice & Jay, visited Scotland in 2021
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 in 2021

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.

We are continuously monitoring the safety of all our destinations and share the latest information on our Travel Updates page.

We value the safety of our customers and staff, so our decisions are based on the advice of official advisories such as the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as the EU and national governments, when it comes to safe leisure travel.

To find out where you can go on holiday, follow the guidance of local and international travel advisories. They have information on the rules and regulations around leisure (or 'non-essential') travel, including quarantine laws.

We also recommend you to keep up to date with the official advice from WHO (the World Health Organization).

With our cancellation insurance, you will not lose money on your Nordic Visitor tour if you have to cancel due to Covid-19 reasons, including closed borders and cancelled flights.

You can alter your booking dates on one occasion with no change fees, or you can cancel and receive your payment back as a combination of refund and travel credit, depending on the amount of notice provided.

You can purchase the cancellation insurance with your travel package or receive it free of charge with a deposit of 20% or more.

In general, we always recommend all travellers to get comprehensive personal travel insurance. Plus, if you are from an EEA country, we advise that you bring your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) with you.

Check with your policy provider to find out if you are covered for coronavirus-related claims. They may be able to give you an upgrade on your policy to include this. If not, we suggest you search for insurance providers that do offer Covid-19 cover.

Once you’ve purchased the PCR test, send us proof of payment for the test, such as a receipt, and we will refund you the fee. You can choose between a refund to the same credit card you used to book your tour, or a service upgrade for the same amount.

We are taking 2022 bookings for most of our major destinations, including Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Scotland and Ireland. To find out if your tour of choice is available in 2022, simply choose 'Find Your Price' and use the calendar to see if dates are available.

Some 2022 tours are currently discounted as part of our Early Bird Sale. Book now to save up to 15% on your next adventure. Don’t miss out as these offers are available for a limited time only.

Our travel consultants will also be happy to let you know what's on offer if you would rather contact us for a chat.

Your health and safety, and that of our employees, has always been our top priority. That’s why we’ve been proactive in implementing new health protocols across our tours, in line with local laws and regulations regarding Covid-19.

Increased cleaning, availability of hand sanitiser, and social distancing are the three key measures we are enforcing to keep our customers safe.

To maintain our high safety standards, we ensure that all our guides and suppliers carry out specialised Covid-19 health and hygiene training. Every element of your Nordic Visitor tour has been checked for safety, including your accommodation, transport, activities, and any restaurant meals that are part of your package.

For the full range of what we're doing to keep travellers safe, see our Travel With Confidence plans.

Our key advice is that you follow government guidelines relating to Covid-19. We also recommend that all customers take out travel insurance for extra security.

To stop the spread of the virus, it is important to wash your hands regularly, use hand sanitiser, limit contact with others, and avoid touching your face.
