CUSTOM TRAVEL PACKAGES IN SCOTLAND

From the Scottish Highlands to the Isle of Skye, from the Royal Mile in Edinburgh to the shores of Loch Ness, Scotland is full of wonders. With so many possibilities of things to see and do, it’s good to have trusted Scottish travel experts to guide your trip planning and create a custom tour of Scotland for you.

As a local travel agency, Nordic Visitor knows how to make the best use of your time in Scotland. Based on the attractions you want to see, how many days you can travel and what time of the year you visit, our friendly travel consultants in Edinburgh can customise a Scotland itinerary to your needs and interests. We offer a variety of privately-guided tours and self-drive tours in Scotland that can be tailored in various ways. 

CUSTOM ROAD TRIPS IN SCOTLAND

Want to explore on your own? Nordic Visitor’s self-drive tour packages include a rental car, accommodations and everything else you need for an amazing Scotland road trip. You’ll know exactly where you’re driving each day — and which optional attractions are nearby — with your very own personalised itinerary and Scotland travel guide booklet. We also provide you with a hand-marked map of Scotland, a GPS navigation system and our 24/7 helpline.

Many of our self-drive tour packages start from Edinburgh and loop around the Scottish Highlands, with overnights in popular places such as St Andrews, Inverness, Skye, Fort William and the Loch Lomond area. With about 10 days or more, you can build on this route with stays in locations such as the Orkney islands, the Western Isles, the Cairngorms National Park and the “Castle Trail” area of Aberdeenshire. If you have 2 weeks or more, you can do the grand tour of Scotland, taking in the major sights of the east coast, the Highlands, Orkney, and both the Inner and Outer Hebrides. The possibilities are endless with a customised road trip in Scotland!



BESPOKE GUIDED TOURS IN SCOTLAND

Want to travel with a local guide on your own customised route? Nordic Visitor’s privately-guided tours offer the flexibility of a self-drive tour but without the driving. Riding in a premium 4x4 jeep driven by your private guide, you’ll be able to visit many of Scotland’s top attractions -- such as Eilean Donan castle, Glen Coe, Glenfinnan Viaduct and more -- as well the lesser known gems that only the locals know about. Private tours are fully customisable and are great options for those who have specific interests in Scottish heritage, Scotch whisky or Outlander filming locations, for example.



TAILOR-MADE ITINERARIES IN SCOTLAND

All of our itineraries -- both guided and self-drive -- can be tailored by our local experts with extra nights, day trips from Edinburgh, day tours in other areas and more. Here are some ideas for customising your Scotland tour:

  • Need some extra days to rest? We can add extra nights of accommodation in your arrival or departure city, typically Edinburgh, so you can rest up for the journey ahead. We can even modify your itinerary if you’re flying in or out of Glasgow.
  • Want to slow down the pace? Scotland is a country you don’t want to rush through. If you want more time for hiking, photography, sightseeing or just plain relaxing, we can add extra days or modify your tour accordingly.
  • Planning a honeymoon? Enjoy a stress-free, customised self-drive tour in Scotland, with special touches like champagne at your first accommodation and overnights in romantic settings such as Georgian-style boutique hotels and elegant Highland lodges.

No matter how you’d like to tailor your trip to Scotland, you’ll have your own dedicated travel consultant at Nordic Visitor to advise you on possible add-ons and make all local travel arrangements for you.

The Outlander Trail, September 2018

I cannot say enough good things about Nordic Visitor

I cannot say enough good things about Nordic Visitor. Information given was thorough, accommodations were very comfortable (very friendly hosts) and tourist sights suggestions were incredibly helpful. Agne did a wonderful job! I highly would recommend her to anyone. If anyone has any doubts about booking with Nordic Visitor I would simply suggest reading the reviews...You'll find that the positive reviews are accurate!

 

Lisa, United States

Scottish Highlands & the Isles, August 2018

Had the best time and experience

We had the best time and experience, the self-drive tour was easy to follow and gave us enough structure to see a lot in a small amount of time but still gave us the freedom to explore at our own pace. The restaurant recommendations were really helpful and the places we stayed were so memorable and inviting. It was also great that we had the flexibility to add another day to Edinburgh at the beginning of the trip to explore. I'll highly recommend the tour agency.

 

Chris, Australia

North Coast 500 & Orkney, June 2018

Journey was terrific and easy to follow

Agne was extremely helpful and informative when organising the holiday. All travel documents were emailed to us before we left Australia and hard copies were also waiting for us at our first accommodation in Edinburgh. The fold-out map that had been highlighted with route of the journey was terrific and easy to follow.

Sharon, United States

Highlights of Scotland, August 2018

Thank you again for great memories

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.

Alan, Canada

Classic Scotland, June 2018

More customizable & more fun adventure

We are thankful we went with Nordic Visitor for our tour of Scotland. We were at each location one hour before all of the tour buses because we had our own car and could get around quicker. More customizable and a more fun adventure.

Gretchen, United States

Express Scotland, June 2018

Will for sure continue to use Nordic Visitor

This is our second time using Nordic Visitor and both times have been absolutely wonderful! The stress of having to book accommodations and arrange car rental and travel from the airport is completely eliminated by utilizing this travel resource. We will for sure continue to use Nordic Visitor and have shared your information and website with many friends and even strangers.

Robert, South Africa

Grand Tour of Scotland, June 2018

Whole experience was a pleasure

I was very impressed with the ease of use and professionalism of Nordic Visitor right from the initial website browsing through online booking, tour confirmation, payment and final documentation. Service from our Travel Consultant (Sarah) was top class and personalized. The guidance given on sites of interest was well researched and fully comprehensive. The whole experience was a pleasure. Well done.

Lois, United States

Complete Scotland, April 2018

"Above and beyond" service

"Very Good" comes short of describing my trip! This was probably my top, most favorite trip every and I travel a lot. The B&Bs and hotels were excellent and I chose the standard. My itinerary was well planned making it so easy to just enjoy everything. The detailed guide book also was a great help in offering suggestions of thing not to miss. My deepest appreciation to Annie not only for planning this outstanding trip, but also her "above and beyond" service dealing with my luggage which the airline had lost.
