Have you thought about taking an adventure travel journey but are hesitant because you thought that adventure travel was only available for adults?
It has all changed, now you can experience the joy and wonders of adventure travel as a family. Several our suppliers have put together fantastic Family Adventure Travel journeys where you are in small groups about 12 people, 3 to 4 families, of likeminded family travelers with children in the same age group. Our suppliers don’t just adapt grownup itineraries for families but create separate itineraries with just families in mind. It is not your Grandfathers adventure travel anymore.
Have your kids stood next to a group of sunning sea lions on the Galapagos Islands, white water rafted on a river in Costa Rica or toured Thailand?
Now they can participate in family friendly adventure travel where there are things to see and do for the whole family. Your children can learn about different cultures by interacting with the local people and learning about their culture. With adventure travel, when you travel with your kids you see the world in a whole new way.
Family trips introduce kids to the inner workings of other cultures through language, sports, crafts, and time with experts that bring what they’ve learned in school into real life. The average Family group consists of about 12 people, typically three or four families from all over the world and with kids around the same age as yours. If one family member isn’t having a good time, nobody is. Each Family tour is given a Recommended Age rank so parents can tell if it’ll be a good fit for their kids before they go.
Travelling is the perfect way to open up a child’s world to possibility and wonder. Powerful experiences lead to new interests, and exposure to different cultures, languages, and environments helps the kids of today become the responsible, well-rounded adults of tomorrow. Our Family trips deliver a seamless mix of adventure and education that’s so much fun they won’t even realize they’re learning something the whole time.
One of the advantages of group travel is the diversity of people you get to share your experience with. Family trips are a great way for children to meet and interact with other kids from around the world who are close to their own age and share common interests. It’s not uncommon for families who meet on our trips to stay close after the trip ends; some even make the experience an annual tradition.
Traveling with the family is an adventure unlike any other, in all sorts of ways. Kids often have wildly different needs than adults, which is why we don’t just adapt our grown-up itineraries for smaller travelers. Little things like age-appropriate activities, hotels with amenities designed for families on the go, and Local Guides that think like kids and adults alike are just a few of the things that set their Family trips apart. They believe that everyone deserves to have the time of their lives, no matter how old they are.
Sample Family Adventure Top Sellers
Thailand Family Adventure
Why do some families go all the way to Thailand just to lie on the beach? We don’t know either. Our family adventure mixes a whole lot of bona fide Thai experiences—everything from a longboat tour of Bangkok, a meeting with a hill tribe community, a cooking class in Chiang Mai and a somber visit to the infamous bridge over the River Kwai—with a little bit of sand and surf, too. Hey, even the Buddha reclined and relaxed occasionally, right?
Family Land Galápagos (Multi-Activities)
Looking to give your kids a crash course in exotic wildlife? What better place to visit than “Darwin’s Test Kitchen,” the Galápagos? On this multi-activity trip, you’ll have the chance to snorkel, hike, kayak, and swim the islands, as well as visit a giant tortoise breeding center and the Charles Darwin Research Station. Who says learning about nature has to be boring?
Amazon, Machu Picchu
Every traveler should visit Peru at some point. Introduce your kids to it early through this comprehensive trip that bundles the Amazon, Machu Picchu, Cusco, and more into nine life-changing days.
