By Maria Cook

Traveling with a family can be tough. It's easy to find ourselves struggling to stay within budget, while keeping kids entertained. For the eco-conscious, tourism can seem doubly daunting. We want to experience faraway places and observe nature, but we don't want our presence to contribute to any environmental damage. Luckily, eco-tourism is booming, and it doesn't have to cost a fortune, either! Here are six eco-friendly vacation spots for families that won't break the bank.

Northern Lights, cozy cabins, hiking in the snow, salmon fishing. Just a few of the things that come to mind when we think of Iceland. This remote land is also a booming hub for eco-tourism and the world's largest clean energy consumer. For such a popular spot, prices are surprisingly low. In some areas, families can rent vacation homes for as little as $30 a night. Kids and adults are sure to enjoy Iceland's expansive hiking trails, unique cuisine and the outdoor, geothermal pools.
