We arranged our trip through Jelena at Nordic Visitor. Having visited Denmark and Norway I had an idea of what to expect but nothing prepares you for the beauty and friendliness of Iceland. The whole experience was a complete joy and the variation arranged by Jelena between urban and rural lodging was the perfect balance for my son ( aged 25 ) and myself ( considerably older.
I would have no hesitation in using Nordic Visitor for my next trip to Iceland and have already advised friends this is the company to use for their trip. We really enjoyed our time in Iceland and largely it was due to the excellent preparation you sent us.
To have the maps with all the advice in front of us was terrific. In fact, I have just spent most of this morning talking to friends who are in the midst of planning a trip to Iceland in the near future.
They were very impressed by the organisation and information you provided us. We're currently considering coming back for 10 days in 2016.
We'll keep in touch. Thank you so much again. Nordic Visitor went above and beyond. I have travelled extensively and I was incredibly impressed with everything about your agency. I loved the experience from the time I booked until the time we left Iceland. It was a flawless experience. Loved, loved, loved it. Loved my rental car.
Loved my maps, loved the highlighted route that Hilmar did for us. From the onset, the communications with Nordic Visitor were really good. We were able to select the tour that best fit our needs and the experience was extraordinary. In our particular case, there were two labor strikes at KEF that had an impact on our arrival and departure times.
Nordic Visitor notified us before the airline about the strike and the impact on flight scheduled, adjusted our tour schedule to accommodate us and even make up some of the lost time.The Saints are in decent form themselves, but I fancy Arsenal in what promises to be an open entertaining contest.

WatchThe Seattle Seahawks took advantage of being able to practice outside all week and are "fired up" for the upcoming game against Jacksonville on Sunday. Brady Henderson at ESPN.
But the Seahawks' pass protection has improved quite a bit with Duane Brown at left tackle. According to Pro Football Focus, Seattle allowed pressure on 39. The Seahawks' 24-10 win over Philadelphia last week was another reminder that they shouldn't be written off in their injury-weakened state.
An improved offensive line, a running game that has shown signs of life and a defense that has still been good without Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor will be enough on Sunday in Jacksonville. The defense -- which leads the NFL in sacks, pass defense and scoring -- has its hands full with Wilson, Jimmy Graham and Doug Baldwin, but there are enough playmakers at all levels to limit the big plays that Wilson creates with his legs.
However, the Jags' offense is going to have a hard time moving the ball consistently. Leonard Fournette is still dealing with an ankle injury and has run for just 226 yards and one touchdown on 77 carries (2.
The offensive line is banged up too. The biggest issue, though, are the receivers dealing with the half of the 'Legion of Boom' still standing. Rookie Keelan Colehas been up and down all season and has battled drops. Rookie Dede Westbrook is playing in just his fourth game. Marqise Lee is the Jaguars' top option, but he has battled rib and knee injuries over the past six weeks and leads the NFL with seven drops. The Jaguars just don't have enough firepower to score a lot of points.
Tough to do, given that the Jaguars own the No. Also not helping this pick: Earlier this season, Seattle was throttled by the Titans (before playing frantic catch-up football). I'm not confidentBlake Bortles and the Jags' receivers can capitalize on the Achilles' heel of Seattle right now: a banged-up secondary missing Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor.
