Best Family-Friendly Destinations To Visit in Iceland

Best Family-Friendly Destinations To Visit in Iceland

Children can learn about geothermal energy while playing in hot springs, or watching boiling water shoot into the air; they can search for the Northern Lights or clamber - all this is bound to spark an interest in the natural world. For animal lovers, there are visits to Slaki's petting zoo and Icelandic horse-trekking. A good place to start family holidays in Iceland is Reykjavik, the capital, where there is a family park, a zoo, attractive botanical gardens and Perlan. At this unusual attraction, former water tanks have been turned into a museum and observation dome. Our top picks of other family-friendly destinations include:

  1. The Golden Circle

    Although made up of several visitor destinations, top favourites for kids are The Blue Lagoon and the Geysir Geothermal Field. Children are mesmerised waiting for Strokkir to erupt 50 metres or more into the air. There is never long to wait, as the geyser erupts every seven to ten minutes. Once the ground starts bubbling, have your cameras ready. Children as young as two are allowed in the hot waters of the Blue Lagoon. No matter how cold the air temperature, everyone will love this experience.

  2. Whale watching at Akureyri and Húsavík

    Take a whale-watching trip from these two destinations in northern Iceland for an almost 100% guarantee of spotting whales. As long as the water is calm, boats sail along the fjords every day and are perfectly safe for even the youngest child. Who is not going to be awestruck by seeing whale spouts, or catching a glimpse of humpback, orca and minke whales, or playful dolphins and porpoises?

  3. Dog-sledging at Mývatn

    The best way to enjoy the diverse and beautiful scenery around Lake Mývatn is from a dog-sledge, an experience that can be enjoyed by children from age two upwards. Visit the kennels to get to know the friendly huskies and stroke the entrancing puppies, before taking to the sledge for a thrilling ride.

  4. Glacier walking at

    Skálafellsjökull Hiking on a glacier is a classic Icelandic adventure that can be enjoyed by children from eight. A jeep tour followed by a short glacier walk can be enjoyed by children from the age of five.

  5. Explore a lava cave at Raufarhólshellir

    For a contrast from glacier walking, go underground to explore the marvellous formations and colours of a lava cave. Budding scientists can learn about geothermal activity, while younger children love exploring the weird and wonderful tunnels.
