Everything you need to know about planning an amazing vacation in Iceland with your kids. This travel guide is perfect for kids of any age
Kyana Sue Powers
Is Iceland kid friendly? Of course it is! Iceland welcomes all adventure babies of any age! Iceland is one of the safest counties in the world! You might see locals leaving their sleeping babies outside of shops in their strollers and kids walking and playing all about town with no adults in sight. You'll feel very safe with your kids in Iceland and they will have a blast playing in the beautiful nature!
Pro Tip: Almost all hotels offer “family rooms” which come with extra bunk beds to fit the whole family.
