What is an Iceland family holiday?

An Iceland family holiday combines adventure, natural and cultural exploration, and learning, making it a memorable and enriching experience for families of all sizes. 

In Iceland, you and your family will experience a ton of fantastic things together, for instance:

Natural wonders with kids in Iceland.

Natural wonders

Take your kids on a waterfall hunt, ice cave expeditions, geothermal spring hikes, and glacier investigation. When exploring Icelandic wonders by playing with your children, you’ll see Iceland’s wonders through their eyes. It is so much fun! We bet your kids will discover hidden details that you miss.

Northern Lights hunt with family in Iceland.

Northern Lights hunting

Your kids will remember the northern lights chasing in Iceland forever. Dress warmly and bring a thermos filled with hot chocolate to keep you all warm. Since there’s no guarantee of witnessing the northern lights, our top tip is to prepare your children for the possibility of waiting for the lights to appear. Delve into the natural wonder of the aurora borealis with your children before embarking on your journey to Iceland.

Whale watching in family in Iceland.

Whale watching

To get you all excited about the whale watching experience, stop by the Whales of Iceland museum to learn more about these creatures before the tour. It will be so much more fun if you have some basic whale knowledge. Ask questions to the crew and bring binoculars for your kids so they can actively participate in spotting the whales.
