save money on a family trip to Iceland

FEARLESS FAMILY TRAVEL #22

Hello from Iceland! Thanks to Hey Iceland, we’re spending our half term road tripping this awesome island. Already we’ve seen lots of shooting geysers and gushing waterfalls, and we’ve even driven on snowy roads and ridden Icelandic horses… but where are those Northern Lights? We’re yet to see them as it’s been too cloudy each night, so keep your fingers and toes crossed for us. I’m posting lots of our photos to facebook and instagram, and be sure to follow our instastories.

We have arrived in #Iceland 🇮🇸 !!! .. I think I was in love with this country before I even got here 💙 and mother nature is just putting on a spectacular display. .. Check out our stories to see where we're sleeping tonight – cutest little hut in the snow thanks to @heyiceland #hosted .. And extremely pleased we packed our 3in1 jackets from @mountainwarehouse – these layers are just what's needed for the interchangeable weather here ☀️🌨️🌈☔ .. .. .. #gunnuhver #geothermal #heyiceland #discovertherealiceland #icelandroadtrip #exploreiceland #icelandwonder #heyiceland #discovertherealiceland #icelandroadtrip #exploreiceland #icelandwonder #beautifuldestinations #speechlessplaces #fearlessfamtrav #travelmadfam #ourtribetravels #myfamilywanderlust #pottyadventures #bbctravel #lpkids #exploringfamilies #travelkids #familytravel #takeyourkidseverywhere #passionpassport #traveljunkies #holidayswithkids

Where's the road gone?! 🤔 ❄️ So much fun driving along these snowy roads today ☃️🚗 Luckily hubby was behind the wheel, and thanks to the special snow-wheels with magic grip on our @europcariceland 4×4 (that's about as technical as I get with cars), it was smooth sailing. #ad ❄️ Check out our instastories to see what we've been up to today – the highlight for the boys was probably riding an Icelandic horse 🏇 ❄️ .. .. .. @heyiceland #heyiceland #discovertherealiceland #iceland #icelandroad #icelandroadtrip #visiticeland #exploreiceland #icelandwonder #inspiredbyiceland #wintertravel #winteriniceland #icelandwinter #beautifuldestinations #ourplanetdaily #familytravel #travelkids #fearlessfamtrav #lpkids #travelmadfam #showthemtheworld #adventurekids #travelkids #pottyadventures #bestoficeland #ourtribetravels #myfamilywanderlust #lppathfinders #worldschooling #roadtrip

Now Iceland is known for it’s extortionate prices and travellers love to compare how much they have spent on a beer. But we’re actually managing to keep this trip to budget, thanks to advice from other travel bloggers who have visited Iceland, and helped me out with a recent post – How to save money on a family trip to Iceland.

However, if you’ve been following me on instagram last month, you’ll know I’ve been sharing a few last photos from our epic overland trip. So for November’s Fearless Family Travel, I’m linking up my FAQ: Travelling Africa with kids post. Since our overlanding adventures across Africa in a Land Rover earlier this year I’ve received so many questions, from where to hire a 4×4, to malaria concerns, to where we pee when on the road! All these questions and much more are answered in this post. I hope you enjoy it!

Sorry folks… More Africa spam is coming your way! I'm finally getting round to writing an FAQs post for the website and finding lots of pics I've yet to share with you. .. I've had so many questions about our African adventures – from taking antimalarials, to where to rent a 4×4, to how much it cost, to what do to about needing a wee on the road. I hope to cover all your questions and more… but if there are any specific questions, let me know in the comments below or feel free to message me if you want to keep it anonymous 😘 .. .. .. #fearlessfamtrav #landroverdefender #landrover70years #landroverphotos #overlanding #roadtrip #onelifeliveit #beyondlimits #thisisafrica #namibiandesert #skeletoncoast #natgeotravel #guardiantravelsnaps #bbctravel #lpkids #lppathfinders #namibiatourism #showthemtheworld #travelkids #familytravel #adventureparenting #travelmadfam #passionpassport #pblogger #travelblogger #uktravelblogger #lovelysquares #adventureanywhere #offroading #traveljunkies

Loved all your comments from yesterday's post about the best age to travel with kids. I think the main things to take away is DON'T wait for that perfect age to travel. Each age has its pros and cons; although not many (including me!) are fond of the crawling stage 😂 .. Lots of people thought we should have waited till the boys were older to take them to Africa. I'm very pleased we didn't listen to them 😜 .. .. .. #malawi #magicalmalawi #visitmalawi #malawitourism #thisisafrica #exploringfamilies #fearlessfamtrav #adventureparenting #zebras #safarikids #showthemtheworld #travelmadfam #tmom #pblogger #travelblogger #familytravel #takeyourkidseverywhere #bringthekids #snaphappybritmums #followyoursunshine #travelkids #traveljunkies #beautifuldestinations #beyondlimits #lppathfinders #lovelysquares #bbctravel #lpfanphoto #awanderfulchildhood #worldschooling
