Your sense of adventure doesn’t disappear just because you have kids, so why should your family holiday destinations be limited to the ‘usual suspects’? On an Intrepid Family Adventure you and your kids will encounter plenty of real life experiences along the way – anything from riding a tuk-tuk in Bangkok, playing football with the Maasai in Kenya or sailing down the Nile in a felucca. Whatever it is, learning and exploring in the real world opens eyes and minds in a way the virtual world never can.
Why take your kids on an Intrepid Family Adventure?
Just for families
As the name suggests, these trips are designed just for families – including grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins! No adult can travel without a child and on most trips, kids are between 5-17 years of age. Check the detailed Trip Notes for each tour on our website to find the specific minimum ages.

Travelling with families
Travelling the Intrepid way is a bit like travelling with a group of friends - you just haven’t met them yet! Made up of 2-3 like-minded families, the kids tend to hit it off straight away, allowing adults to enjoy the group atmosphere and socialise in a relaxed environment. We often find that the whole family end up making lasting friendships with people from all over the world, staying in touch long after the adventure ends.
Intrepid’s family group sizes are small enough that we aren’t intimidating - we can avoid the crowds and travel to places that large tour groups can’t access, but big enough so that there are a couple of other families to make it a good sociable number. Our robust group size lets us hop aboard local boats, buses or trains, we can eat at friendly, family-run restaurants, and we can stay in traditional accommodation and homestays.
