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.

This is a challenging time for our clients given the uncertainty around the spread of coronavirus, particularly for those with near-term travel plans in impacted areas. We’re working with our suppliers on being flexible with their booking conditions, and enabling families to postpone travel to a later date without a penalty, when possible. Likewise, given the unpredictability around destinations that may be impacted in the future, we’re helping clients planning new trips and understand ways that they can protect themselves until the situation improves. We are ready to help our clients work through questions and concerns.
Our offices are closed for the holiday. We will respond to your request on Monday, November 28th. If you are a Ciao Bambino client experiencing an emergency while traveling, please leave a voicemail on
