Family Park Raggagardur

Nesvegur 1, 420 Súðavík

How it all started
Vilborg Arnarsdóttir (Bogga in Súðavík) created this garden. She has had a long standing dream of creating a playground for children, families and guests visiting the Westfjords in the summer. Her intention was to encourage quality time for children to share with their parents by enabling out door activities and excercise in a dedicated area. She started serious work on the project after she lost her son, Ragnar Freyr Vestfjörð, who died in a car crash in Súðavík in 2001, only 17 years old. The garden is dedicated to his memory.

The dream came true with the help of local people, summer guests, numerous supporters of all ages and several sponsors. All those people have volunteered with dedication and loving care contributing several thousand hours of work to the garden. The garden has received many generous gifts through the years and funds have been raised using various methods. During the 11 years of its existance four tons of ´kleinur´ (Icelandic twisted doughnuts) have been baked and sold in support of the garden, children have organized lotteries and given all the income to the garden. The Association of Sheep Shepherds in Ísafjarðardjúp have supported the garden in many ways, concerts in support of the garden have been organized etc.

The construction work
The „Raggagarður Society“ was founded on January 8th 2004 to manage the design and construction of the garden. On the board of directors for the first 11 years (2004-2015) were: Vilborg Arnarsdóttir chair, Barði Ingibjartsson, Sigurdís Samúelsdóttir, Anne Berit Vikse og Jónas Ágústsson. The work started on May 14th 2004 and the playground opened on August 6th 2005. The garden has two play areas, the upper area is for older children and the lower area for the youngest. In the fall of 2013 the work on the recreational part of the garden commenced and three storage huts were built. Themes inspired by the Westfjords distinct character have been used in the garden‘s designs and artwork made of local material decorates the garden. The recreational area was formally opened on August 8th 2015.

The facilities
The recreational area has a stage with public seating for arts and cultural events and large family gatherings. There are facilities for barbecue on several locations and tables and chairs for more than 100 people inside the garden.

The guestbook and collection box are situated next to the lavatories and we kindly ask guests to sign their names in the book whenever the visit the garden. There is no admission fee for Raggagarður but contributions to the collection box are greatfully accepted. The money collected will be used for the upkeep and operational costs of the garden.

WC, BBQ and other facilities are open from June 1 to September 1. Nevertheless, you are welcome to visit the garden during other seasons as well.

The garden is made with the minds, hearts and hands of local people and their supporters. Many thanks to you all who made this project come true.

Icelandic Lava Show

Víkurbraut 5, 870 Vík

Icelandic Lava Show is the first and only live lava show in the world.
The show is located at Víkurbraut 5 in the beautiful village of Vík on the South Coast, in the heart of Katla UNESCO Global Geopark, surrounded by volcanoes, glaciers, beautiful nature, and black sand beaches. It takes about 2 hours and 15 minutes to drive from Reykjavík to Vík without stopping. We recommend that you arrive at the Icelandic Lava Show no later than 15 minutes before the show starts. 

The show begins with a short opening from the show‘s host and then delves into a short educational video about Icelandic volcanism and why Iceland is such an active volcano island. Then Katla UNESCO GEOPARK and the volcanoes surrounding Vík are highlighted with a good explanation of why these volcanoes are considered among the most dangerous on the planet. After that, the show takes the audience 100 years back in time with a dramatic story about the catastrophic Katla volcano eruption in 1918.

The highlight of the show is when everyone is advised to put on their security goggles and the lava starts pouring into the showroom. The bright orange color as the lava starts flowing into the room is like sunrise and as the lava starts gliding over the ice it starts to bubble and crackle. The most surprising aspect, however, is the intense heat that radiates from the lava and the temperature in the showroom quickly rises. For a few moments, the only thing you want to do is sit there transfixed on the lava, mesmerized by the sensory onslaught as you watch the lava cool in front of your eyes, slowly turning from bright orange to grey to black. It is an experience unlike anything else you have ever experienced. 

Soon after the lava flows into the room, the show‘s host starts playing with the lava, explaining the different aspects of it and what it really was that you just witnessed. As the lava continues to cool down, the host is able to demonstrate some really interesting aspects and wonders of lava and encourages the audience into an interactive Q&A session. 

In the end, when the doors to the showroom are opened, it is usually a bright-eyed and flushed group of audience that walks out of the room, still wrapping their heads around the remarkable experience they just had in this wonderland of ice and fire. Most agree that Icelandic Lava Show is a must-see for everyone visiting Iceland.

Reykjavík Park and Zoo

Múlavegur 2, 104 Reykjavík

The family and petting zoo in Laugardalur is a real gem in the middle of Reykjavík. There you can find Icelandic farm animals, wild Icelandic mammals as well as representatives from the two groups of animals that are not found in Icelandic nature, reptiles and amphibians. Ever since the opening of the Zoo in 1990, it has been main focus that the park is a good role model in terms of animal protection and animal welfare.

The Family Park was opened in 1993 and since then the Family and Petting Park has been run as a single park. In the Family Park, most people will find something to their liking, but there are all kinds of playground equipment, good snack facilities and barbecues in a sheltered outdoor area, which makes a good summer day even better and a stormy winter day good for spending time outside.

The concepts that formed the basis of the development of the area are to see, to learn, to be and to do and are linked to keywords such as family, adventure, stories, games and environmentally friendly progress. Concept creators and appearance designers of the area looked for an allusion to the cultural history of Icelanders. Therefore, there are various memories in the two gardens related to Norse mythology and the nation's Viking period. These include viking ships, prominent columns and Þinghol, which imitates an old parliment place, as well as names in the area. Educational work was at the beginning the cornerstone of the activity and still is.
