People think family vacations are all smelly car rides, underwhelming resorts and the nagging worry you’ve forgotten the kids like they did in Home Alone. But not ours. Family travel gives you a chance to connect. A chance to learn together, have fun together, to experience something you’ll be talking about at the dinner table for years.

Whether family travel means adventures with toddlers, or teens or a bunch of grown ups who are young at heart, we've got just the trip for you. All of the good bits, none of the stress – welcome to a new style of family travel.

Family travel with kids 

These trips have been specially designed to cater to the unique needs of family travel. You'll stay at family-friendly accommodation, visit kid-friendly locations but still have all of the off-the-beaten path experiences you'd expect from a regular Intrepid Travel trip.  If you're looking for more than beaches, sun burns and boredom on your next family adventure, you're in the right place.

Family trips FAQ

Our family trips are just that – for the whole family. That means you don’t have to leave aunties, uncles and grandparents at home. As long as there is at least one child under the age of 18 travelling with you, you’re a family group. Older families should check out our regular Intrepid adventures.

Most of our trips have a minimum age of either 5 or 11 years old. Trips with a minimum age of 5 are suitable for all ages, and we can even tell you in advance the age of kids already booked on that departure. Most of our travellers are between the ages of 8 and 18 years old.

Our teenage trips have a minimum age of 10 and offer more active and challenging itineraries designed especially for older children. If you also have younger children, we will look at allowing them onto these trips on a case-by-case basis, depending on the activities on the trip and their ages.

Tips, inspiration and facts on family travel


Family travel for grown-ups 

Maybe you want to treat your parents to a family adventure for their big anniversary to help make up for scratching their car as a teenager, or have a family getaway with your fully-grown, semi-mature children. Either way, you don't have to have young kids or be one yourself to take an Intrepid family adventure. We think travelling with loved ones is special no matter what age. 

Whether it's finally having a home-cooked meal together in Italy (with a local Italian doing the cooking), reliving those road trips on a jeep ride through the Serengeti, or adding photos of you all lazing on a Thai beach together to the family album, we've got just the adventure for your family.
