7 Day Iceland Family Adventure
With its fascinating landscapes and unique wildlife, Iceland is a natural draw for parents and kids seeking otherworldly experiences right here on Planet Earth. Where else can you live like a Viking one morning, walk under a waterfall and past burbling geysers another, spot puffins and whales in the wild, and stand inside a glacier? A picturesque walk-in classroom rich with hands-on experiences, Iceland educates while it delights, enlightening kids and adults alike on the power and possibility of nature in a way that never feels like a lecture. Our adventure includes all that and more, including private tours and transfers, unstructured time to explore on your own, knowledgeable guides, and hotels that know what matters most to families.
Begin in Reykjavík, the world’s northernmost capital, with breakfast and a local Viking museum. Later, get an up-close demonstration of how some of the best Icelandic chocolate is made, before getting to sample some of the treats yourself! Then marvel at the friendly monsters of the deep on a whale-watching tour in the North Atlantic. Next, venture out into the southern lowlands near Selfoss for a guided tour of the magnificent Gullfoss waterfall, the famed Geysir, and petting farm experience on a local farm. In the Westman Islands, you’ll have the chance to see the world’s largest puffin colonies, the windiest spot in Europe, and even drive through the Herjólfsdalur volcano. Up next: the breathtaking beauty of the UNESCO-protected Þingvellir National Park and a visit with the famous "Rock Troll" near Fossatún. We’ve saved one of the coolest experiences for last: an amazing look inside Langjökull, one of Iceland’s largest glaciers, with the help of specially modified glacier vehicles. End your family adventure with a dip in the calming and relaxing waters of the Blue Lagoon before heading home.
