Introduction
Iceland may just be the perfect outdoor family vacation destination. How can you go wrong with volcanoes and puffins and walking on glaciers and rides on 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 sand beach, you’re snorkeling in clear-as-glass water or exploring wavy lava fields. And all of the multisport activities are included at no extra cost. In the company of our expert guides, you’ll get the inside scoop on the human history and tectonic action that is constantly changing this amazing land. Well-sited hotels ensure you are close to nature and the activities, while also being totally family-friendly. Prepare to be totally amazed!
Itinerary at a glance
DAYS 1-3 — REYKJAVIK / SKALAKOT
Your Iceland tours begin on a privately guided walk in Reykjavik, the world’s northernmost capital. After, journey underground to explore a volcanic eruption from the inside.

A short coastal drive takes you to your luxury manor house hotel on a farm that's been owned by the same family for seven generations. It's the perfect jumping off point for activities - riding the short, sturdy, shaggy Icelandic horses, visiting the best waterfall in Iceland, buckling on crampons for a glacier walk and strolling on a black sand beach.

DAYS 4-6 – SNAEFELLSNES / BLUE LAGOON 
Experience Þingvellir National Park as you explore tectonic plates by either snorkeling between them in the world’s clearest water, or hiking over them in the island's oldest national park.

Out on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, your countryside hotel overlooks a glacier-capped volcano. Your daily expeditions include whale watching in waters where the Minke and humpback species spend the summer, fine coastal walks, and the chance to meet a real-life shark fisherman. 

And on your final day, 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.

6 Days / 5 Nights
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.
