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, skiddoo across an icecap, climb a volcano and walk across a lava flow all in the space of a few days? A family holiday to Iceland will leave you and your children wide-eyed with wonder.

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.

When you book a fly-drive holiday with us you’ll also have the added bonus of our exclusive digital travel companion, iDiscover. Hosted on an iPad Air, which is loaned to you with your car, iDiscover is pre-loaded with your personalised itinerary as well as other useful features including Mission:Explore – a collection of fun and educational games for children.
