Baby (1 year old) friendly day trips from Reykjavík

Hi guys,

Me and my wife will be travelling to Reykjavík in July this year with our 1 year old daughter. We are arriving Thursday 15:00 and returning back on Sunday 08:00 . Could you please suggest two day trips (Friday and Saturday) which are doable with a kid(1 year old). I am considering the classic golden circle tour as one of the option. I wasnt sure about the other day trips with kid. Do the tour busses have place for baby strollers. Thanks in advance. Happy travels :)

Strollers are not enough. The baby has to be in an approved child seat whenever it is in a car. I'm not sure what companies offer people to bring an infant. My first advice would be against it, as the baby doesn't care what you are doing. It needs whatever it needs whenever it needs it, and doesn't comply to a group schedule.

We ended up driving, however the company below will take babies on their tours.

Yes, we do accept babies on our tours.

Children 12 years of age or younger travel at 50% of the adult prices.

Details of our tours including price, departure time, duration, a list of places visited and photo gallery of each tour along with a list of Frequently asked questions can be seen on our website www.icelandhorizon.is

If you wish to book, please let me know how many spaces you need on which tour/s on which date/s and which hotel to collect you from.

We will then send your booking confirmation.

Payment is made on the day of each tour by cash or card.

Best regards

David

Keep in mind that most day tours in Iceland are long (8+ hours) and on a fixed schedule, so no option for breaks when you child might need one.

I think self-driving and being on your own schedule would be a much better choice with a baby. Then maybe you could drive the Golden Circle and the Reykjanes Peninsula with plenty of breaks.

For July I strongly recommend self driving. You could go at your own pace and make changes based on how your child is doing. As mentioned bus tours are very long, and not many will take children that young.
