25 photos to inspire a trip to Iceland with kids

Iceland is a country of contrast. No wonder why they call it the land of fire and ice!

Traveling around the country, experiencing the #vanlife in this wonderful country with our 5-year old daughter, we want to inspire you today to do the same with your young family. And maybe soon we’ll travel there, together, your family with us!

(P.S. I’m serious: if you would like to join us for a family tour of Iceland, please comment below and we’ll see what we can do 🙂

Touring the gorgeous Nordic country is like therapy for a family. Going through strong, positive emotions, and sharing meaningful moments together, brought us closer.

Honestly, you might not like the cold or prefer to spend your family vacation at the beach. Please put your preconceived ideas aside, and believe me when I am telling you that everyone I know that visited Iceland deeply fell in love with this fascinating and breathtaking country.

It is the safest country on Earth, so please don’t worry about the safety of your family. Second, Icelanders are the happiest people on the planet. Don’t you want to know their secret?

Also, there are a lot of things to do and see with your kids: hiking, glacier walks, cave discoveries, swimming and water sliding in thermal pools, biking and so much more!

Please stay tuned for our 10-day itinerary around Iceland for families with kids! Coming soon 🙂
