Iceland is a wonderful country. Anyone who has been here could attest that it deserves to be in the must-visit country list. Its low crime rate and the proficiency of people in the English language make it a good destination of choice even for families.

Discounts for ChildrenĀ 

Traveling in Iceland is not cheap. But you don’t have to worry as the experience makes the money spent all worth it. Also, in Iceland, children are given discounts. Most travel and tour companies offer 50% off to children under 12 years of age. They are also given discounts for transportation and even for tourist attractions.

Some airline companies like Air Iceland offer discounts to children age 2 to 11. Children are given 50% off on airfare if tickets are booked either by phone or online. Bigger discounts await for those who booked their tickets online. Aside from airline companies, hotels also give children special discounts. Some even offer free accommodation for kids under 12.

Family-Friendly Accommodation

Families have several options to choose from when it comes to accommodations. Hotels, youth hostels, farm accommodation, and even guest houses have special rooms for families of 3 to 5. Many of these family rooms have individual rooms. Some of them have cooking facilities so you can cook your own food, a good way to cut on the food expenses.

The best thing about being in Iceland is that boredom rarely happens. It’s because there are a lot of things that you can do here. You can take your kids for whale watching, bird watching, and even horseback riding. Most Icelandic horses are small and even-tempered so you don’t have to worry when it comes to your child’s safety.

If you wanted to have an authentic Icelandic experience, then you better try the geothermal-heated swimming pools. Almost every village has them. Many of these swimming pools have child-friendly facilities like water slides and toys.

Iceland is definitely for everyone. Bring your family here and build more beautiful memories together.
