Accommodation on Europe & Turkey trips

For our continental adventures, we like to stay in small, locally run hotels where hospitality is key and family-friendly facilities are available. Fortunately Europe has plenty of great old buildings and character-filled properties to choose from. On our Turkey Active Holiday we sleep for two nights on a traditional Turkish gulet, and on our Italy Family Holiday we stay at a lovely guesthouse – Villa Giovanna, a locally run hotel surrounded by olive trees and Sorrento lemons, with great views over the Bay of Naples (and a pool, of course).

A taste of whats in store...

Each of Intrepid's family trips has been built with a smooth blend of action-packed activities and flexible family time, just the way we like it. Want to know the sort of adventures you can expect with us? We’ve picked out a few of our favourites.

Explore the ruins of Pompeii

History lessons don’t have to be dry and dull affairs. We’ll guide you and the kids through the old stone streets of Pompeii and bring the familiar story of its AD79 destruction to life. Learn about the city’s last few minutes at ground level, then climb Mt Vesuvius for a bird’s-eye view over Campania.

Experience on Italy Family Holiday

Cruise the Lycian Coast in a real Turkish gulet

A gulet is an all-timber, handcrafted Turkish yacht, built specially for cruising the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean. It’ll be your home for a couple of nights on our Turkey active trips, the perfect base for island hopping, snorkelling and exploring the coves of the Lycian Coast.

Experience on Turkey Active Teenage holiday

Go cross-country skiing in the Pyrenees

Ah the Pyranees, Andorra’s classic winter wonderland and one of the best value ski spots on the continent. We’ll set you and the kids up in a chalet in Soldeu for a week of tobogganing, igloo-building and cross country skiing. Okay, and maybe the odd snowball fight.

Experience on Winter Pyrenees Family holiday

Try your hand at cheese making in Slovakia

Kids plus farm animals plus a hands-on cheese making class in the gorgeous farmland of the Janosikove Diery Canyons is a recipe for fun. Meet the farm animals, milk the cows and join local artisans in making some of Europe’s best cheeses. It’s a rare glimpse into real Slovakian rural life.
