Pickle says….I love travelling, so does Mummy and the teens. We are already looking to next year and where we would like to visit and researching hard! One place Mummy would love to visit is Iceland. But is it a good idea to visit Iceland with kids?

6 Reasons to Visit Iceland with Kids

We think ‘Yes it is!” and here’s why:

  1. It is less than a three hour flight from London to Reykjavik. Airlines that fly to Keflavík International Airport from the UK include easyJet, Flybe, WOW Air, and Icelandair.
  2. The cheapest time to fly is May. The most expensive time is July. So a May Half Term holiday would be perfect.
  3. There are regional direct flights too, we could fly from Bristol for only £69 return each!
  4. We can go whale watching – how awesome would that be? We would take a trip from Reykjavik harbour to see minke and humpback whales between May and September. Children of all ages can go. Expect to pay around £75 per adult and around £37 for children.
  5. Dog Sledding – imagine whizzing through the snow on a sledge pulled by huskies! There may be a lower age restriction for children, and it is not cheap – but it would be a once in a lifetime journey! Expect to pay from £130 for an adult.
  6. We could go on a Golden Circle Tour to take in the most popular sights of Iceland – there are many guided tours to choose from.

The Northern Lights are perhaps the most famous reason to visit Iceland, the best time to see them are from September to mid-April . The worst weather with rain and snow is generally between November and February.

  2. I’ve only ever spent six hours in Iceland, en route from Canada to Scotland when I immigrated in 1999. I’ve been longing to go back ever since! One day. Bucket travel list goals!
