We just returned last night from our trip to Scotland and I wanted to let you know what a great trip we had with Nordic Visitor. You were wonderful setting up our requests and I cannot thank you enough for switching our tour dates when we were unable to go as originally planned in May. The hotels and food were brilliant. Brian was magnificent. We could not ask for more of a guide. Even the special trip to see Highland coos. This was our second Nordic Visitor trip and we are now looking into our 3rd for next year. Thank you again for great memories. I am glad we were able to meet you on our first night.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

You may have a few questions about destinations and Nordic Visitor services before you choose a tour. For your convenience, we’ve collected and answered the most common queries. If you want more information on our payment policy and terms and conditions, have a look at our FAQs.

A small group package is when you explore a place with an experienced local guide and fellow like-minded adventurers.

Unlike many travel companies, we keep our tours personal and limit numbers to 15 - 16 people maximum, so that you can enjoy more time at attractions and attention from your guide.

Northern Europe is a safe place to visit, with many of the countries in the region featured in the Global Peace Index.

The ideal time to explore Northern Europe depends on how you like to travel and what you want to see. If the northern lights are on your list, or you want to experience wintry conditions, then consider exploring Iceland between September-March and remember to bring thermals and good waterproof outerwear.

Want to enjoy milder weather and longer days to explore? Then the milder spring and summer months between April-August would be an ideal time to visit. If you visit Iceland or Northern Norway during the warmer months, you get to experience the midnight sun.

Find out the best time to visit Northern Europe in our handy travel guides:

The northern lights are a stunning natural phenomena that are only visible with the right conditions. We suggest visiting:

  • Iceland
  • Northern Norway
  • Svalbard
  • Greenland
  • Lapland

Go during the winter months as the nights are longer so you have more time to chase down the aurora borealis. Discover more viewing tips in our comprehensive northern lights guide.

When you choose to join a guided group tour, one of the main benefits is that you can enjoy the company of like-minded travellers on your getaway. This is especially popular with solo travellers.

In comparison to self drive tours, you also have an experienced local guide on hand to teach you about the sights and take you on your journey. We keep our tours small so that you can enjoy more time with your guide, and don’t feel rushed when you’re at attractions.

Yes, children over the age of 12 are welcome on our escorted tours. We also recommend having a look at our family-friendly self-drive and private tour options if you would like more flexibility, and the widest range of choices for customisations. We’re here to help, so contact us if you have any questions about travelling in Northern Europe with kids.

You can bring one medium piece of luggage on our guided packages. Please note, it will be your responsibility to take it to and from your room, and back onto the bus for the next day’s adventures.

We recommend you take a small rucksack or small day bag with items like extra layers and cameras. For more handy travel tips, have a look at our packing guides for Iceland, Norway, Scotland and Ireland.

On all of our small group tours, breakfast is included so each day you’re starting your adventure with plenty of energy. The food available will depend on your destination as each of the countries within Northern Europe have distinct culinary specialities that you’ll be able to try.

If you have any dietary requirements, make sure to inform your dedicated travel consultant in advance.

The activities of your trip will depend on the tour you choose. Each package has an activity level and recommendation so you can explore at your ideal pace and not feel rushed. If there are excursions or activities that you have questions about, get in touch with your travel consultant.

Our packages feature a range of excursions aimed at different activity levels, so our guests vary in age and interests. To find out more about the activity levels and accessibility on our packages, contact our team.

Each of our buses is specially chosen to ensure our customers are comfortable and can relax. All of our vehicles seat 19 people comfortably but depending on the tour, we have a maximum of 15-16 guests onboard to ensure there’s plenty of legroom.

Yes, you can choose your preferred arrival date. Nordic Visitor has a wide range of arrival dates depending on the package and season. All of our dates are available to browse online, so once you’ve chosen a country and tour you want to join, you can choose the best time to visit for you.

If you have already booked a tour but travel plans have changed, contact your personal consultant to rearrange your bookings.

Yes, you can extend your trip by a day or more at either end of the journey. If you’ve not added extra days when booking, but want to, contact your personal travel consultant as soon as possible.

We’d advise that you look over flights for timings and dates, but hold off buying until you’ve booked your preferred tour. Once you’ve had a confirmation email from your personal travel consultant, and all your relevant package information, you should then choose and purchase your flights.

We recommend preparing for all sorts of weather when you’re visiting Northern Europe. Depending on the season you visit, you might need these things:

  • A lightweight jacket or wool sweater
  • Waterproof jacket and trousers
  • Sensible footwear with good grip
  • Gloves, scarves and thermal socks
  • A swimsuit and quick-dry towel
  • Sunscreen and insect repellent in the summer months
  • An insulated coat, thermal layers and long johns in the winter months

For a detailed list of what to bring and how to prepare for your adventure, read our travel guides for Iceland, Norway, Scotland and Ireland.
