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. From superjeep adventures and glacier hikes to taking a cruise on an iceberg lagoon or a boat trip in search of puffins, you will find something to suit all ages.

Our wide collection of holidays includes flexible, family-friendly itineraries. Many of our Travel Specialists have visited Iceland with their own children and can tailor make the perfect adventure to suit your family’s needs.

"It really was one of our best holidays ever. The best part was the Superjeep tour, which had exactly the right car seats for the children."
