As well as exploring incredible destinations around the world, our activity holidays for families are packed with exciting adventures for thrill-seekers, wildlife enthusiasts and culture lovers. Discovering faraway places with your family is a great way to educate and spend time with your children as you sample authentic regional cuisines, try new activities, see spectacular sights and experience different ways of life.
Our guided family activity holidays are designed for children between 9-12 and 13-16 with varying activity gradings. What’s more, you can enjoy excellent value for your money as we offer reduced prices for children up to the age of 16. We also select family-friendly accommodation with excellent facilities for both children and adults.
Our guided family activity holidays have something to suit various ages of children and parents too. They are specifically designed to incorporate a wide range of activities from hiking and wildlife spotting to mountain biking. Imagine zip-lining above the Amazon Rainforest, dogsledding through the Finnish wilderness or exploring the Mekong Delta by boat. And because we grade our activities based on their difficulty, you can select the best adventure to suit your children’s abilities. Activity holidays are a fantastic way to spend time together, ensuring each member of your family enjoys unique experiences.
Even before you set off on your trip, our experienced team will provide you with expert advice about all aspects of your holiday, including entry and testing requirements. All our guided activity holidays for families include highly experienced and fully trained tour leaders that have exceptional local knowledge, so you are always in safe hands throughout your trip. They will provide you with the latest local information, and should you become ill during your tour, they will get you medical attention.
Exodus Travels is dedicated to your wellbeing and safety: we maintain small group sizes; ensure all destinations are approved; and all accommodation, transport, and food venues are checked for cleanliness and hygiene safety prior to your visit.
The best places for family activity holidays all depend on the interests of your family members. Perhaps you have a passion for wildlife and exploring exotic locations, in which case, Costa Rica, Borneo, Namibia and Sri Lanka are all wonderful destinations that introduce you to some of the world’s most magnificent animals.
Or, maybe you love to soak up diverse cultures and experience different traditions? Then you should travel to Vietnam, Petra and Wadi Rum, or the Amalfi Coast. Southern Turkey is the perfect destination for water-based activities such as sea kayaking, canyoning and SCUBA diving, or you could try your hand at snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and dogsledding in Finland.
Besides enjoying time away from day-to-day stresses and creating fabulous memories, family activity holidays have a wealth of benefits. By encouraging children to learn new activities such as snorkelling, canoeing or even trekking through a rainforest, you’re teaching them to step out of their comfort zone and take risks, which can increase their self-confidence and improve their physical health.
Cultural experiences in new countries can also promote diversity by teaching the family about different social and ethnic backgrounds. Most importantly, though, going on holiday with the family can strengthen relationships and improve communication.
Exodus prides itself on providing action-packed activity holidays for families, from a guided wildlife safari in Namibia and trekking along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, to a wildlife adventure in Costa Rica. Each of our guided family tours is led by an expert leader who will introduce you to the history, culture and wildlife of the places you visit. Whether you prefer to enjoy a more leisurely eight days in Italy sampling the local pizza or taking on something more challenging, we offer a wide range of tours that will suit your family.
