Different types for the Nordic Travel tours

Deluxe

Deluxe accommodation is usually the best that is available in each area. For the most, we use hotels for this category but occasionally a few farms are used; each which has its own atmosphere. In all cases, the accommodation is of a good standard. One hotel can be very small and personal, another is special because of its wonderful surroundings, and whereas a third one has extra luxury.

Every accommodation at this price point offers a TV, a telephone and a private bathroom with a shower and toilet in the room.

In all the hotels, dinner and drinks are available, either in the hotel itself, or else within walking distance. Some hotels in the centre of Reykjavík do not have their own restaurants due to the abundance of dining choices close by. Usually there is a bar, but sometimes the dining room is used for that purpose, or drinks are sold in the reception.

Breakfast is always included with you room and is usually a buffet breakfast. People can eat as much as they like, but may not take food away from the buffet.

Standard

In our standard accommodations, clients can expect all kinds of “hotels”. There are hotels which are open all year round and function just as hotels, but there are also boarding schools which have been built knowing they would be used as hotels during the summer. Many farms also have gone into tourism and have changed stables into amazingly nice hotel rooms, or have built completely new wings with rooms. Some guesthouses also offer rooms with shower and toilet, and they can be just as nice as a “real” hotel. Keep in mind that the name of the accommodation does not always provide a realistic indication of its quality.

What all hotels have in common, though, is that the rooms you stay in will have a private bathroom with shower and toilet. Only very few hotels have bath tubs. In many of these hotels, there will be TV and telephone in the rooms, but not in all of them. Some have things like hair dryers in the bathroom, and a few also have minibars in the rooms.

Dinner and drinks are available in all the hotels, either on the premises or within walking distance. Some hotels in the centre of Reykjavík do not have their own restaurants due to the abundance of dining choices close by. Usually there is a bar, but sometimes the dining room is used for that purpose, or drinks are sold in the reception.

Breakfast is always included with you room and is usually a buffet breakfast. People can eat as much as they like, but may not take food away from the buffet.

Simple

As with the deluxe and standard accommodations, we offer a variety of “simple” rooms. Many are summer hotels. These properties are boarding schools where it was usually not known that it would be used as a hotel when originally built. There are also various guesthouses which are open all year around and, again, many farms which offer nice but simple rooms.

In general, these accommodations offer rooms without private facilities. Toilets and showers are in the corridors and are shared by all guests. The number of available showers varies between the guesthouses, so sometimes you might have to wait before it is your turn. It might be a good idea to bring a robe, to wear when you go out of your room for a visit to the bathroom.

In many of these rooms, there is a wash basin, but that is not the case in all guesthouses. In some exceptional cases, there is even a TV or a telephone, but that is not at all common.

Breakfast is included and is often a buffet breakfast. People can eat as much as they like, but are not allowed to take food away from the buffet.
