Traveling with kids in Iceland

The Tillotson family doesn’t settle for your average family holiday. In 2017, parents Derek and Kenzie sold their Utah home to bring big brother Porter, funny man Beckett, and little sister Wren on the adventure of a lifetime, traveling to 38 countries in 54 weeks. And what was their first international stop? Well Iceland of course!

Experience the Westman Islands

The Westman Islands, or Vestmannaeyjar in Icelandic, is an archipelago of 15 islands located just off the south coast of Iceland. Out of the 15, only one is inhabited year round: the island of Heimaey. There you will find a community of 4.000 that has prospered from a thriving fishing industry. With stunning landscapes, a charming village and the largest puffin colony of the world, these small yet enchanting islands offer a variety of activities and attractions for visitors.

The Icelandic Lopapeysa

The Icelandic wool sweater, or “lopapeysa”, has grown in popularity over the last decade and is one of the most sought-after souvenirs for travellers visiting Iceland. As you journey through the island you will find variations of the lopapeysa worn by babies, children, hipster teenagers and grandparents who all favour this warm and comforting design icon.

Icelandic Legends and Folklore

The population of Iceland is currently 334,252 according to government figures. However, if folklore is to be believed and you count trolls, elves, and hidden people, then the actual number of Icelandic beings living on this volcanic land may be significantly higher. Of course, the chance of catching sight of one of these magical creatures is pretty low but this doesn’t mean they do not exist, just that they are rather hard to track down.
