FAQs about Travel in Iceland

Voyages sur mesure en Islande

Below you will find the answers to questions that our clients frequently ask us. Of course, we can't address every aspect of travelling to Iceland here; so, if you need more information, feel free to contact us.

1. What to do with my kids in Iceland?
Iceland is a wonderful travel destination for kids. They will appreciate its untamed wilderness and magnificent landscapes of volcanoes, glaciers and deserts. The constant daylight of summer will fascinate them while educating them about the Earth's axis. We've come up with itineraries for families with swims in hot springs or open air pools every day! Your family will also love whale watching on the open sea, observing sunbathing seals on the coast, or discovering the nesting sites of Arctic Puffins, Iceland's emblematic animal. If your kids love sports and outdoor activities, they will be able to choose from mountain biking, horseback riding, ice climbing on glaciers, kayaking, hiking and the list goes on!

2. Is Iceland safe?
Iceland is one of the safest countries in the world. It has one of the lowest (virtually nonexistent) crime rates. Its health care is very sophisticated and covers all of the regions of the island. It is difficult to improve upon.
In the case of an emergency, all you have to do is dial 112 on your cellular phone to call an ambulance or the police.

3. Are there discounts for children?
You will benefit from any discounts for children practiced by the accommodations in which you are staying when children share a room with their parents, as well as any other discounts offered by service providers (activities and excursions, transportation, etc.).

4. Is Iceland expensive?
Iceland has a reputation for having a high cost of life. Meanwhile, the financial crisis that hit the country in 2008 caused a devaluation of the money, counterbalanced by a strong inflation. In the end, the cost of a trip to Iceland, while still relatively high remains more accessible than it once was. That being said, the cost of your trip will depend totally on the kind of itinerary you choose. By spending your nights in hostels, camping or mountain huts, or renting a can before the 15th of June or after the 15th of August, we can turn you on to ways to cut your costs. Ask us and we can design a trip to match your budget.
