“Cute, short-legged and shaggy maned, Icelandic horses are easy to fall in love with. Horseback rides are just one of many ways for families to explore Iceland’s otherworldly landscapes.”
You needn’t travel far from Reykjavik to get a taste of Iceland’s rugged landscapes. We know the best guides and companies to help you and your family have the adventure of a lifetime. Try summer snowmobiling on the giant Langjökul Glacier. Explore the thermal region of Geysir, which gave geysers the world over their name. Show the kids your secret lair as you lead them behind the curtains of giant tumbling waterfalls. See the iceberg-studded Jökulsárlón Lagoon. Descend into the centre of a dormant volcano. Fly in a helicopter over Iceland’s endless lava fields. If you’re really brave, you can even go snorkelling between the two tectonic plates that separate Europe from North America.
From Hagar the Horrible to Ragnar Lothbrok, the Vikings have long captured popular imagination. Don your own Viking costumes amid the lifelike waxworks of Reykjavik’s excellent Saga Museum. Examine Viking artefacts such as drinking horns and swords at the superb National Museum. Visit the Viking ruins of the world’s first parliament at Thinhvellir National Park. Or hear of maritime adventures around a 10th century Viking longboat at the Settlement Museum.
