Introduction
Iceland may just be the perfect outdoor family vacation destination. How can you go wrong with volcanoes and puffins and rides on super jeeps and Icelandic horses? The island has a unique cultural story and a bubbling, steaming, erupting geology that’s unlike anywhere else on earth. Short attention spans do well in Iceland because there are so many fun and different things to do. If you’re not walking on a black beach, you’re snorkeling in clear-as-glass water or walking in wavy lava fields. And all of the multisport activities are included at no extra cost. In the company of your local guide, you’ll get the inside scoop on the human history and tectonic action that is constantly changing this amazing land. Family-friendly hotels include a deep country lodge named the “Best Hotel in Iceland” and a hip Reykjavik property right on the main shopping street. Prepare to be totally amazed!

Itinerary at a glance
DAYS 1-3 — REYKJAVIK / HELLA
After we meet in Reykjavik, we dive right into the fun with a ferry ride to the Westman Islands to visit the 700,000 pairs of Atlantic Puffins that live there. And we’ll explore the “Pompeii of the North”, a town covered by a volcanic eruption 40 years ago.

Back on shore, we check into a cool country lodge that will be the perfect jumping off point for activities super-jeep rides to Mount Hekla, a walk through the formations on a lava field, and a visit to the best waterfall in Iceland. We’ll also buckle on crampons for a glacier walk and go for a stroll on a black sand beach.

DAYS 4-6 – BLUE LAGOON / REYKJAVIK
Get ready for a day of watery fun like you’ve never had before. First, we’ll go snorkeling in the world’s clearest water where it wells up between two tectonic plates. Then we’ll wade in for a soak at the Blue Lagoon, a steamy geothermal lake, where you can relax like a real Icelander, enjoy the people watching, and maybe get an in-water massage.

We’ll also dedicate a morning to whale watching in waters where the Minke and humpback species spend the summer. After a farmhouse lunch, we’ll saddle up for a lively ride into the countryside on the legendary Icelandic horses. Or if you prefer, join our guide for a walk through terrain populated with new-primitive sculptures. Our farewell dinner is at a top-rated restaurant in the Reykjavik Concert Hall. On our final day, get in a morning nature walk on the Reykjanes Peninsula near the city.

Southwestern Iceland is a beautiful travel destination, but it might be considered cold by tourists coming from warmer locations. Summer months are more moderate, with the average temperature being about fifty degrees. For this reason, the main tourist season in southwestern Iceland is during the summer months, primarily between June and August. There is no particular rainy season in southwestern Iceland, and storms are relatively rare.
