We spent the summer of 2016 touring Iceland. Now we're writing a guidebook to tell you exactly what you want to know:

How to take the whole family abroad and survive the process unscathed.

Thursday, July 28 update: Icelandic Sagas– The Greatest Hits in 75 minutes

[Note: It looks like I forgot to post this! And I lost most of the pictures. Ignore all of that– it’s a good show!]

Icelandic Sagas– The Greatest Hits in 75 minutes is inappropriate for children. And my children really enjoyed it.

Here are the most important things to know:

  • The show is in Harpa. Everything in Harpa is free for kids 12 and under. Therefore, this show is free for kids 12 and under! More on this in a minute.
  • The stage is just a long “runway”, as you can see below. There are two rows of seats on each side. So you can have front row seats, if you want them. All seats are general admission.
  • Everyone needs a ticket, regardless of age. I think there were a few seats left for our show, but I can imagine the show might sell out.

Saturday, July 9 update: Reykjavik harbor area, City Library, Photography Museum, and Settlement 871 ±2

We headed to the main downtown area of Reykjavik, in and around the harbor. This is just a 10 minute or so walk from the museums we went to yesterday, though it feels like a very different area.

First up was supposed to be lunch at the Laundromat Café, but it seems perpetually full. Instead of fighting for a table, we moved on to Café Paris just down the street. .
