Iceland Family Holidays

A sense of adventure. A passion for geography. Or even just curiosity for the weird and wonderful. Whatever inspires your children, you’ll soon discover that Iceland is Nature’s ultimate playground – and classroom. Where else can you search for whales, track down trolls, soak in a geothermal pool, snowmobile across an icecap, climb a volcano and walk across a lava flow all in the space of a few days? An Iceland family adventure holiday will leave you and your children wide-eyed with wonder.

We can tailor make your Iceland family adventure to suit your timeframe and budget, as well as the ages and interests of your children.

Is Iceland a good family holiday destination?

The short answer is “Yes!”. Iceland is incredibly family-friendly. Just three hours’ flying from the UK, it is not only a superb destination for self-drive holidays (a favourite for families in search of freedom and flexibility), but it also boasts a wide range of family accommodation and child-friendly activities.

A single-base is a good option for families. We can recommend some great locations, packed with adventure potential and offering accommodation ranging from summerhouses and cottages to farmstays and hotels.

Is Reykjavik family-friendly?

Easy to reach from Keflavik airport, a great choice of accommodation and plenty to see and do, Reykjavik is a good option for a short family break if you’re looking for adventure.

Trendy cafes, quirky styles and a vibrant atmosphere will likely appeal to teenagers, while younger children will enjoy visiting attractions like FlyOver Iceland and the Saga Museum uncovering country’s colourful myths and Viking heritage. Within the city the modern Perlan museum is interactive and even offers the chance to explore an ice cave.

Then there is the wealth of activities and places to visit around the capital. From high-speed RIB rides to visiting geothermal swimming pools. Our Reykjavik Family Adventure is a 3-night action-packed break combining the best of the city with highlights of Iceland’s magnificent countryside. And we can easily adapt it to suit your family dynamic.
