Iceland Family Vacations | Ciao Bambino!

Rugged, wild and characterized by extremes in every regard, a vacation to Iceland means traveling to a place like no other. Although it’s relatively small, it has a diversity of landscapes that make it incredibly unique: glaciers and volcanoes, lava fields and hot springs, green cliffs and black sand beaches. Life here is at its best outdoors, and for active families who love a taste of adventure, the long list of kid-friendly things to do in Iceland puts this destination at the top of the bucket list. Identifying well-located accommodations that work for families takes some advance planning with experts who know the inventory here, as the tourism infrastructure has struggled to keep pace with demand. Our Advisors can help you book tried and tested kid-friendly gems that range from stylish to rustic.

"Another magical vacation by Laurel! You've done it again … I can't wait to see the next adventure you plan for us."

–VanderVelde Family Ireland & France Trip

"Our family just returned from an incredible 1-week adventure in Iceland. We saw whales, dolphins, and puffins, hiked to amazing waterfalls and geysers, explored a lava tunnel, soaked in hot springs, including the Blue Lagoon, and saw the Northern Lights!! Our grandchildren had smiles on their faces the whole time! Thank you, Helen, for planning such a memorable trip for our family. We’ll be talking about it for many years to come."

–Stone Family Iceland Trip

–Kaufman Family Trip

"We had a fantastic trip. So many thanks for your help in putting this together."

–Lange Family Trip

"Katie planned the perfect trip. We all agree it was the best trip we've had, and the hotels were some of the best we've stayed in. We found that with a baby, it was only possible to get through about half of the suggested itinerary each day, which was great because it gave us options. We took time each night to debate what we would do the next day, and really enjoyed having those possibilities laid out for us.​"

–Beck Family Trip

"We absolutely loved the resort. Everything was really easy and especially family-friendly."

–Memmott Family Trip
