Rugged, wild and characterized by extremes in every regard, Iceland is a place like no other. Although it’s relatively small, it has a diversity of landscapes that would be impressive in a nation twice its size: glaciers and volcanoes; lava fields and hot springs; green cliffs and black sand beaches. Life here is at its best in the outdoors, and for active families who love a taste of adventure, the long list of spectacular things to do in Iceland should catapult this hot destination to the top of the vacation bucket list.

CB! Family Vacation Advisor Tamara Gruber, who counts Iceland as one of her favorite destinations in the world, knows just how to make this dream vacation a reality for families. She went live on the Ciao Bambino Facebook page to offer expert advice gleaned from her multiple trips to the country, including considerations like these:

  • how far in advance you’ll need to plan
  • a rough idea of the typical Iceland travel budget
  • tips for navigating the country by car
  • choosing whether to go in summer or winter
  • favorite activities and experiences for different ages

You’ll come away with invaluable firsthand insight — the kinds of tips you won’t find in the pages of any guidebook. Listen in for more!
