Here you can find all the latest travel updates for Nordic Visitor destinations. We will update this page whenever any news comes to light, whether that’s a volcano eruption or limited availability.

It’s our goal to always keep travellers and future guests well informed ahead of and during their trip.

If you have booked a tour with us, rest assured we’ll be in touch with you. We’ll make sure you know about any updates regarding your Nordic Visitor tour.

ICELAND VOLCANO ERUPTION 2022

A volcano on the Reykjanes peninsula, near the airport and capital city, started erupting on 3 August 2022.

This eruption has now been declared over, meaning there is no more magma bubbling up or lava flowing. That said, it’s still an exciting sight, with new fields of fresh lava and steam.

Local authorities have said that we might expect more eruptions in the area in future. Check out our Iceland Volcano Eruption page for more information.

2022 TRAVEL & AVAILABILITY

Due to the popular demand for travel to our destinations in 2022, availability is low for the rest of the season. In fact, many of our tours are sold out until October, with some only open for the upcoming winter or summer 2023.

If you’re keen to book a trip in 2022, make sure to check the availability calendar on your chosen tour. We also encourage you to book as soon as possible to secure your preferred tour date.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below are answers to some of the more common questions that Nordic Visitor customers are asking about travelling or booking tours right now.

We value the safety of our customers and staff. So while we do not decide whether a destination is deemed as safe, our decisions to run tours are always based on the advice of national governments and official international advisories, such as the WHO (World Health Organization), when it comes to safe leisure travel.

To find out where you can travel to, follow the guidance of local and international travel advisories. We’re pleased to say that most travel and domestic requirements have been lifted in our destinations.

Nordic Visitor doesn’t require you to take a PCR test for Covid-19 prior to travelling. However, some of our destinations may require you to take a PCR or rapid test, often within 72 hours of your arrival in the country. Check the latest destination news for the country you are visiting in the section above.

Your dedicated travel consultant will inform you of any changes in national guidelines, should they occur.

If tighter restrictions are put in place in the destination you are visiting, your consultant will make adjustments to your itinerary, where necessary. Should they need to make changes to your itinerary, your personal consultant will do everything to make sure you still have a special travel experience.
