Vacation type
This trip is for families only (including any aunts, uncles or cousins who’d like to come along, of course). As long as you’re traveling with a child under the age of 18, you’re a family in our eyes. Plus, unlike other travel companies, children aged 17 years and younger receive a 10% discount off the price of their trip. Traveling our way is a bit like traveling with a group of friends. Made up of 3-5 like-minded families, the kids tend to hit it off on these trips straight away, allowing you to enjoy some well earned R&R. We often find the whole family ends up making friendships with people from all over the world, staying in touch long after the adventure ends.

Our family group sizes are small enough to avoid the crowds and reach some out-of-the-way places, but big enough for a good social mix. Our average group size of 10 allows us to hop aboard local boats, buses or trains, eat at friendly, family-run restaurants and kick back in traditional accommodation and homestays.

We know the biggest challenge on a family trip is keeping the kids entertained. So we’ve planned in advance. Nearly all of our hotels feature pools, and each day has a great mix of action-packed adventure and flexible free time. Your local leader can also suggest activities based on your kid’s hobbies or school curriculum.

Iceland family vacation

Carbon reduction

Your vacation will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this vacation and how to reduce them.


The very ethos of our style of travel is responsible; small groups made up of between three to five families, on fully escorted tours, experiencing the very best of a region, a culture and a landscape, with a friendly local hand guiding the way. Our itineraries are designed to give every member of the group, regardless of age real life experiences without compromising the part of the world we are exploring; to travel responsibly, and encourage others to do the same is at the heart of our commitment as a global tour operator.

We believe that responsible travel is about the attitude you take with you and the choices you make when traveling - to respect and benefit local people, their cultures, economy and the environment. We travel by these values wherever our groups go; whether exploring remote regions of South East Asia to getting under the skin and discovering our European counterparts.

As a country, Iceland takes sustainability seriously. 87% of the country’s heat and water demand is met by using geothermal energy, with hydro power supplying 75% of the electricity and the other 25% coming from geothermal power. Environmental responsibility is a way of life to Icelanders and it is something that we aim to reflect with this family adventure vacation.

Waterfalls, glaciers, geothermal pools, geysers, volcanoes and lava flows all feature on this journey through the Iceland’s pristine natural wonders and we expect all our travelers to assist us in maintaining these environments. We ask our travelers to journey with respect, disposing of rubbish and litter carefully, recycling where ever possible, and sticking to marked paths and trails when exploring national parks. The entrance fee we pay to access the national parks such as Skaftafel and Pingvellir contributes directly to the conservation of these unforgettable, protected wilderness areas.

We also ask our travelers to use refillable water bottles during their trip rather than purchase bottled water while traveling. The tap water in Iceland is considered to be safe to drink therefore there is little need to purchase bottled water. The sale of bottled water contributes to an enormous environmental problem around the world. In addition to the water in the bottles; the production of a 1 litre plastic bottle takes 2 litres of water and 200ml of oil. A large proportion of these bottles end up in limited landfill or discarded in waterways and natural environments, sometimes despite the best intentions of those who disposed of them.

Throughout this trip we support local suppliers. From the company who run our boat tour on Glacier Lagoon (Jokulsarlon), to the small, often family run restaurants we dine in, to the locally owned hotels we use throughout the trip. Wherever possible, we aim to direct the funds from our travel into the communities we visit rather than into the pockets of larger corporations.

You will travel with a professional local group leader, recruited from within Iceland, in fact, all of our team ‘on the ground’ will be Icelandic. Employing local group leaders and drivers is a key element of our operations. Not only does it provide employment opportunities and therefore financial benefits in the country we are visiting, but it also gives our travelers access to intriguing local insights, cultural view points and occasionally access to areas that just aren’t detailed in guide books. Chatting with the group leader is a great way of engaging younger family members with the places being visited. When traveling with us, local knowledge goes a long way.
