About our Family Adventure holidays


We're big believers in the role that travel plays in introducing our children (and us) to a whole new world. Learn about the ancient Egyptians as you sail down the Nile, appreciate the incredible biodiversity of Costa Rica and experience different cultures and religions in India. Our collection of family adventures are accompanied by expert local tour leaders, who are chosen for their knowledge, passion and experience of leading engaging trips for families. 

A major highlight of travelling on a small group Family Adventure is sharing your experiences with other families and having your children make new friends. 

Never been on a small group family holiday? We've answered some the most-asked questions about how they work.

What to expect on a group family holiday

 

You won't find any 40-seater tourist coaches on an Explore family adventure holiday. To ensure you get the most out of your trip we keep our group sizes small. Our usual family group size is around 12 to 18 people. This allows us to experience different forms of transport, unique accommodation and adventurous activities, whilst getting off the beaten track to seek out the unexpected.

Travelling in a small, informal group makes it really easy for any family, large or small, to fit in and quickly make friends. Single parent families and families with only one child find the small group format works well. Extended families are welcome too and we often have grandparents, uncles and aunts joining the holiday.

Our award-winning tour leaders have all been chosen by us for their knowledge, their passion and their experience in leading family groups. They're on hand to share their knowledge and look after logistics so you're free to enjoy yourselves and your time together as a family. 

We design our family holidays around term dates. Explore our top trips by school holiday

From family holidays in Europe to African safari family trips, we've got plenty of choice on offer. Where will you choose for your next family adventure?
 

How old are children on family adventure holidays?

The average age of children on a trip varies depending on the holiday and destination - our trip pages shows the average age for each trip. If you'd like to know more about the people already booked onto a certain departure (family size, age of children etc), give us a call and we can help you choose a trip with similar aged children.
