Bringing your family on vacation can be a big but beautiful undertaking, we know from personal experience.  But we also know that it’s so much fun to be able give your children a glimpse into different places and cultures, because those moments in time will stay with them forever.  In choosing Iceland though as your family vacation spot, it adds in the dynamic that is very different than anywhere else in the world mainly because of the weather and adventure options.

All that said, it’s important to book tours that are safe for your children, can accommodate and also cater to your needs throughout the day.  Katlatrack is happy to book a custom / private tour for you and your family, see HERE.

So the next question you’re probably wondering is how to prepare your family for a super jeep adventure in Iceland?  Here are our top 5 list on how:


  1. Pick your Adventure: What and where do you want to explore? Half day or full day?  See our selection of tour types HERE.
  2. Wear warm clothing (dressing in layers is ideal), have/bring wind and rainproof gear, hiking boots.
  3. Talk it up! Have a chat with your kids about the super jeep tour beforehand to get them as excited as possible.  Look at pictures of the places you’ll visit, the super jeep you’ll be riding in, and share how excited you personally are for the tour (Come on, we all know you are)!  A child who is enthusiastic and knows what to expect, is less likely to feel nervous.  …and more likely to have fun on the actual tour day!
  4. Bring a “go bag” that has any of the day trip items you might want / need like the following: extra socks, extra shoes, snacks, water bottle, hot hands, gloves, sunglasses, hat, etc.
  5. Plan “B” items for children under 10 years old… Bringing items like their favorite small toy, an ipod for music, books, or a tablet with the child’s favorite movie/show.


Your Adventure Awaits You,
