Iceland - Itinerary Help with Teens/Tweens

Jump to last reply

We will be in Iceland next August. We arrive from DC early Saturday morning and depart on Wednesday afternoon. We are staying in Reykjavik the entire time as we prefer not to move hotels and we are using hotel points for 2 rooms at the Radisson Blu Saga. We will rent a car.

Kids (boys) will be 11, 12, 15. We are not museum people, and prefer active adventure activities and seeing things at our own pace. We try to avoid group sightseeing tours.

We will likely spend Saturday in Reykjavik as I anticipate we will be very tired from overnight flight and don't want to plan anything too ambitious. This gives us Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday full days. From reading guidebook and looking around online, we definitely will want to experience Golden Circle for sightseeing. Activities that look appealing are river rafting or riverjet, dog sledding or snowmobiling on glacier, horse riding. I am also intrigued by going into the volcano at Prihnvkagigur (insidethevolcano.com), but can't decide if it is a lot of effort for something not that spectacular. Any insights would be appreciated. We plan to do these activities as day trips, since we will be sleeping in Reykjavik each night. If anyone has any experience with any of these activities, I would love to hear about it, including best places to do them (such as the horse riding). Also, if you have rafted, is it freezing cold?

We are in the very early stages of planning, so I am open to any and all suggestions. If there are any unique activities I may have overlooked, please let me know. Fodors forums have really helped us with many trips in the past!
