Surpassed our expectations

Overall, the experience was less supportive before the trip, but while on the trip it was fabulous. The fjords of Norway was a bucket list trip for us and it surpassed our expectations. Our guide was wonderful and our bus driver was too.

Extremely happy with our guide. Highly recommend this tour!

The tour was organised very well and the beautiful places we visited. Loved Norway and extremely happy with our young guide and our driver. They both were very courteous, friendly, very good organisers and knowledgeable. Our group had so much fun that we felt sad when it ended! Highly recommend this tour.

Wonderful experience

My daughter and I enjoyed the most awesome Norway adventure with Nordic Visitor. Our guide, Michelle, and bus driver, Marek, helped make our dream of seeing Norway an amazing journey. Marek's expertise in his driving skills made his job look so effortless. The hotels were fabulous and some of the rooms had balconies to sit out on and enjoy the fabulous views. The breakfast/dinner buffets were large and delicious. I had never seen so many choices in all my life. Norway is a most beautiful country with the most welcoming people which gave us many fond memories to forever treasure. A big thank you to all involved in making our visit such a wonderful experience.

Great vacation!

The choice of accommodation was excellent. The included meals at the hotels were some of the best buffets I have ever experienced. Aside from 2 dreary days, Norway was a beautiful and captivating country to visit. The focus on natural wonders was much to my liking. I'm an outdoors person. The tour was more expensive than some others we looked at, but worth the extra expense. I ate too much and took too many photos, but otherwise an all around great vacation!

The service by the Nordic Visitor staff was excellent

I would recommend this tour only to people who want to tick off Norway on their list and can't walk too much. For someone who wanted to be immersed in nature and experience the fjords I would not recommend it. The service by the Nordic Visitor staff was excellent, however. I had a lot of trouble actually getting to the tour and I was supported tremendously by the office. I would still recommend Nordic Visitor but would definitely discuss the itinerary in detail beforehand the next time.


Sleep soundly, in the accommodation type of your choice, and wake up ready to enjoy another day of exploration.
