There are a variety of robust outdoor family activities to enjoy in and around Reykjavik including horse riding and cycling, and children will love bathing at one of the many thermal pools in the city. Families will also enjoy visiting Reykjavik’s new farmers’ market, Frú Lauga, selling free-range Icelandic eggs and skyr – a unique low-fat Icelandic dairy product similar to yoghurt.

A two-bedroom apartment at the family-friendly Fosshótel Barón costs £130 per night.
