Best Time of the Year to Visit Iceland: Questions to consider before making your reservation

Gambar
Iceland is one of the most beautiful countries we have ever seen and is a perfect destination for a family trip, no doubt. When we were planning our trip to Iceland, undoubtedly one of our favorite destinations to date (you can check our itinerary here), one of the main issues we put on was when would be the best time to visit Iceland, and this response may be more complex than we would think at first glance, as this is a country that changes greatly depending on the time of year and with very different possibilities depending on the time of year.
In this way, there are several issues that need to be addressed before we think about it before booking our tickets, which we would like to share with you.
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO SEE?
One of the main issues you have to consider when planning your trip before going to Iceland is really what you want to see, as not everything is possible to see throughout the year. The travel date should be linked to your travel goals. For example, for those who wan…

People who travel frequently know that spending time at airports is an inevitability, whether they like it or do not like it, and most of us do not like it very much, preferring to avoid it whenever possible.
We also like to avoid it, especially since we usually travel with family and with children this can become more difficult. To avoid that these moments are difficult for the family, before each trip we always look for the best way to enjoy the hours that we have to wait in the airports (you can see here our post: How to survive long airport layovers with children's) and , one of the airports we have spent the longest time is Heatrow in London.

A holiday in the mountains is always something very appealing and attractive. However, something that sometimes frights parents of children preparing to travel to high places, is the so famous Altitude Sickness, also known as Moutain Sickness or, if you go to Peru or Bolivia, as Soroche.
No one wants their holidays spoiled and, in particular, no one wants their children to suffer any discomfort, particularly in this situation, from the consequences of Altitude Sickness. In our case, what led us to investigate this occurrence was the trip to Peru, in particular to Machu Picchu, which led us to try to collect as much information about Altitude Sickness, trying to know what it was, what caused it, how to prevent and, more than in the case of adults, what would be the reaction of the children because, as usual, our son, 7 years old at the time, would accompany us on this trip.
Unfortunately, there is nothing that can guarantee 100% that adults and children will not suffer from Altitude Sick…
