Can you imagine anything further away from the normal pace of life than relaxing in a private hot tub beside a traditional wooden cabin, on the edge of a lake in northern Iceland whilst watching the Northern Lights do their amazing thing through the skies? This can be 100% reality and even with the kids in tow. A magical experience awaits for all the family.
Head to the north of the island, the Tröllaskagi Peninsula more specifically (less than an hour from the nearest airport), and stay in one of eight cabins that sit on a lake where you can hire (for no extra charge) boats and kayaks. Or if you want to stay firmly on dry land hire some bikes or don your walking boots to see what this part of Iceland has to offer including the abundance of wildlife so be sure to take your camera.
Best suited for short breaks or a stop-off if you happen to be touring Iceland, Brimnes Bungalows are ideal for families. With comfortable self-catering accommodation including private kitchen facilities and cots/highchairs for the youngest of guests, but with the bonus of the sister hotel just yards away complete with a bar and a very handy complimentary coffee station, as well as a pool table for when a competitive family game is on the cards. And when you need to stock up on shopping or fancy dining out, the nearby town offers a variety of shops and places to eat so you can try some real Icelandic delicacies.
