Guide to Family Adventures

Need help in choosing the right family adventure holiday?

We have over 40 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.

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 Sales Team to discuss whether a trip is suitable for your children – that is what we are here for!
