Thomson Family Adventures announces new Iceland itinerary
Thomson Family Adventures, the leading tour operator in the United States dedicated exclusively to family travel, has announced a brand-new itinerary for 2019: Iceland Family Adventure. International arrivals to Iceland exceeded 2 million visitors for the first time in 2017 as this adventure-rich destination becomes an increasingly popular ‘bucket-list’ destination. Thomson Family Adventures is poised to bring families to this “hot” destination in 2019 with a nine-day itinerary that traverses the island of fire and ice.
“Iceland has all the right ingredients for an adventurous and educational family trip. Its unique geography and history offer wonderful learning opportunities for children, from understanding tectonic plates to learning about the Vikings. We’re incredibly excited to launch this new itinerary and meet the increasing demands for family-friendly itineraries to this incredible destination,” explains Thomson Family Adventures’ general manager, Beth O’Donnell.
Recommended for ages eight and up, this itinerary is jam-packed with educational stops, including beautiful glaciers, waterfalls and geothermal fields scattered across Iceland’s diverse environment. Highlights of the trip include:
A visit to the famous Blue Lagoon, a geothermal sea rich with minerals that is surrounded by a breathtaking volcanic landscape
Swimming in the Atlantic at Álftanes with a glimpse of the Icelandic President’s official residence
A visit to the Strokkur, a geyser that erupts every six to ten minutes, shooting as high as 100 feet
An exhilarating snowmobile ride through a winter wonderland of glaciers
A walk through the Þjórsársalur Valley, exploring Gjáin, a tiny valley with picturesque waterfalls and ponds that is straight out of a fairytale
A tour through Þingvellir National Park to learn about the oldest parliament in the world
An excursion through the Hraunfossar Falls and Iceland’s longest lava cave
A boat tour through the dream world of Breiðafjörður fjord
