Families on vacation who want to travel more independently can pick multi-day self-drive tours, such as this 4-day tour of the Golden Circle or 8-day Ring Road summer self-drive tour.

Where do most family-friendly tours start from in Iceland?

Most day-trip family tours in Iceland start from the capital of Reykjavik, with vacation packages usually starting from Keflavik Airport (the main entry point for international visitors to Iceland). Secondary starting points for some family vacation day tours include Husavik and Myvatn in North Iceland and Jokulsarlon in South Iceland.

What do families need to take self-drive tours in Iceland?

Most multi-day family vacation packages in Iceland are self-drive tours. To take a tour, one member of the family must present a valid driver’s license and have at least one year of on-road experience. These tours include accommodations and a rental car in the price. Teenagers and children are usually booked in the same rooms as parents. Warm clothing, layers, and winter shoes are generally recommended to stay comfortable in Iceland’s colder weather. Waterproof clothing is also recommended for families driving around the country.

Are family vacations in Iceland available all year round?

Most family vacation packages in Iceland that take place outside of Reykjavik are seasonal. Family-friendly northern lights tours are generally available in the winter months, usually September to April, when the chances of a northern lights sighting are more favorable. On the other hand, some summer self-drive tours, or whale watching tours, are available during the summer months. Depending on the specific tour, the season lasts from either June to September or April to November.
