The Ultimate Family Destination
Iceland really is a family destination, with kids welcome everywhere and plenty to do for all ages. Every season has different and exciting options of things to see and do. We know from experience that travelling with children requires planning – so we'll help you design a fantastic Icelandic family holiday that will keep everyone happy!
Reykjavík for all the family
There is so much for families to do in Reykjavík. Even on a short city break you can experience some of Iceland's best sites and activities. Spend a busy few days, wandering downtown between the various museums and galleries or take a sightseeing bike tour and pedal around the city's endless views and attractions.
From the city´s geothermal beach to the zoo and family park, Iceland's long summer evenings mean you can spend as much time as you want outdoors.
Family Day Tours
With amazing geological sites so close at hand, day tours are the perfect way to discover Iceland's famous natural treasures. The Golden Circle tour takes you on a trip through history and nature - you can experience the incredible Gullfoss waterfall, the exploding hot springs at Geysir and Þingvellir National Park all within a few hours.
There are plenty of other day activities on hand: from caving to canoeing, hiking to horse riding, whale watching to walking on a glacier - or go into a glacier or volcano! Anything is possible in Iceland.
Family Self Drive Holidays
Travelling around Iceland with your family is fun and easy. The Route 1 ringroad takes you all around the country, from black sand beaches to magnificent glaciers. You can rent vehicles of all sizes to suit your family – the next step is choosing the direction to head in.
There is accommodation of all kinds around the country, including hotels, guesthouses and summer houses. Icelanders love to camp, so you'll find campsites with excellent facilities in stunning locations all over the countryside.
A Winter Family Adventure
Iceland is the classic 'winter wonderland'. With fun winter activities that make the most of the conditions, and cosy Christmas and New Year's traditions, Iceland is a magical family destination in winter.
Icelandic Winter Magic
The Northern Lights (or Aurora Borealis) are one of the most beautiful phenomena in nature. Observing the distinctive green and purple lights shimmering in the night sky is a truly special experience and the perfect highlight to a winter break.
Searching for the Northern Lights
As a natural phenomenon the Northern Lights can be unpredictable. But hunting the Aurora Borealis can make for a memorable winter holiday, as you can enjoy the many winter activities that Iceland offers along the way. From outdoor pursuits and sightseeing, to cosy hours in Reykjavik's cafes and galleries, Iceland in winter is the perfect romantic getaway.
See the Northern Lights in Iceland
Iceland's high latitude makes it a fantastic Northern Lights destination. If you know the conditions to look for, and where to go, then there's no better place to be – whether you're watching the show from a steaming hot tub, or deep in the heart of Icelandic nature.
