Guide to Family Adventures

Need help in choosing the right family adventure holiday?

We have over 30 exciting family adventures for you, travelling to over 20 countries. With so much choice it may be hard to pin point which holiday is right for your family so we have put together some information which should help guide you to the right trips for the ages and abilities of your children.

Each of our itineraries is different – they can include more experiences and more strenuous activities or the pace of the trip could slower or be based in a more challenging environment. All these factors are considered in the design of the trips and we are proud to offer a range of family adventures suitable for specific ages. By grouping children of a similar age together it usually adds to the experience as they make friendships easily from the beginning.

Obviously if you have children of different capabilities then you will recognise that some activities will only be suitable for certain children – whatever the minimum age attached to a trip. In most cases, unless it is an integral part of the holiday, any child can opt out of that activity (providing a parent stays with them). Equally we recognise that families can be made up of many different ages and it can be hard to find a trip to suit all age groups or that fits into our age categories. As a general rule we can usually take younger siblings – providing they are within a year of the minimum age, although they may have to opt out of certain activities.

Please do call and chat to our consultants to discuss whether a trip is suitable for your children – that is what we are here for!

Overland adventures (7+ years)

Our family overland tours involve travelling in one of our purpose-built trucks enjoying all the must see highlights but also getting off the beaten track. Full of outdoor pursuits and using a mixture of campsites and simple hotels these trips are different, adventurous and amazingly good fun!

Family Adventures (Min age 5 & 7 years)

Most of our tours are designed for children aged 5 -11. Being parents ourselves we understand the difference in the interests and abilities of a 5 year old compared to an 8 year old and thus offer trips with two minimum age tiers in mind – 5 and 7.

Young Adventures (2+ years)

We like to think that adventure travellers can start young! Why not inspire them at an early age and lay the foundations for a curiosity of the world right from the word go? Our Magical Morocco trip has been designed to follow an easy paced itinerary bearing in mind the needs of parents and young children and uses carefully selected accommodation. With no upper age limit, families with both infant and school age children are welcome.
