Iceland is often overlooked as a destination for a family vacation. Yet with a smorgasbord of fascinating geographical phenomena and mythical lore to its name, it is in fact the perfect place for an adventure with the kids in tow. Benefit from the summer’s endless days for a school vacation they will never forget.
Whether it's glacier hiking, snowmobiling, or sea kayaking, an action packed itinerary is sure to satisfy the vacation provisos of adrenaline seeking teens. Meanwhile tales of Iceland’s Viking past and myths of a land populated by ice trolls and mermaids are sure to captivate the imaginations of little ones. As we all know, compromise is the key to a successful family vacation, so pair sightseeing in Reykjavik with splashing around in the Blue Lagoon for a family friendly day out. A short drive away from the city, Hotel Grimsborgir offers accommodation in luxuriously appointed apartments, meaning youngsters can have free reign whilst all of the amenities of the hotel are conveniently on hand. During the winter months, the hotel’s location is ideal to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights, so kids are guaranteed to be entertained, no matter the season.
With its plummeting waterfalls, spouting geysers and immense glaciers, Iceland is an adventure playground for mums, dads and youngsters alike. It's safe to say, geography homework will never be the same again.
