Tips for Travelling in Iceland with Kids
There's no better place to start in the land of fire and ice than the geothermal pools. There are a number of public pools dotted around the capital of Reykjavik, but Laugardalslaug is arguably the most family-friendly. It features an outdoor children’s area, paddling pool, and a couple of water slides.
Another option for an authentic Iceland experience is the waters of the Blue Lagoon, one of the country’s star attractions. Children as young as two years of age are welcome at this spa, famed for its blue waters and soft white mud.
Iceland is famed for its incredible landscape, so don't miss a trip along the Golden Circle route. Marvel at the sheer power of the Gullfoss waterfall, and be wowed by the amazing surging energy of the Great Geysir. After the sun sets, you may be lucky enough to see the shimmering spectacle of the Northern Lights during the winter months.
Your kids will have an unforgettable time whale watching. Tour boats from Reykjavik will bring you to the waters around the capital, home to orcas, dolphins, and whales. Some tours also offer a chance to see the unique-looking puffins that nest along rugged cliffs. Most tours are accessible for all ages.
Iceland has some unique eats, but there may be none more famous here than the humble hot dog. Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur is a legendary Reykjavik landmark, serving tasty ‘pylsur’ smothered in delicious brown mustard from its simple stand for decades. Former US president Bill Clinton and rock band Metallica have been some of the famous visitors to enjoy these local treats.
