Teenagers have a reputation as being tricky travel companions. It’s probably all the hormones. But a teenage trip doesn’t have to be a moody affair. We’ve designed a special range of itineraries just for teens and their families. They’re more active, more adventurous, with plenty of outdoors family time to keep everyone happy (and away from their phones). Destinations without the drama – that’s our motto.

Reputably the hardest age range to satisfy (we know you’re not all like that), as parents ourselves we understand it can be a little tricky to please everyone in the family on a holiday, particularly a head-strong teen. That’s where our dedicated teen departures come in handy.

Our range of adventures have been created to suit your teens’ needs and holiday expectations, so you can enjoy an adventure, shared with your older children.

On a teen adventure you will:

  • Re-connect on a proper family adventure
  • Enjoy more challenging activities, perfect for older children
  • Watch your kids make friends with teens of similar ages and interests
  • Make friends (or commiserate) with other parents of teens

Teenagers tend to be increasingly independent, so we designed our itineraries with a balance between teen time and family time – they can explore with their new friends, and you can create a few new memories for the family scrapbook. Win/win.

A teen private departure

The teenage years bring all kinds of surprises and milestones, so what better way to celebrate a sweet 16 or enjoy some post-exam de-stress than going on a private family departure? Creating your own group of adventurers provides the flexibility on dates and itinerary as we can tailor to your wishes. Our private groups’ specialist Jo can arrange the adventure of a lifetime, so get in touch today.

What can you do on a teen holiday?

Trek the Inca Trail

One of our personal favourites, nothing brings a family together quite like trekking and camping along the infamous Inca Trail. You’ll come home with plenty of adventure stories to fuel dinner table discussions for years to come.

Raft the Seti River and Trek in the foothills of the Himalaya 

Enjoying trekking in the foothills of the Himalaya and rafting through incredible scenery. When it come to camping, no one does it like the Nepalese and you'll be astonished at what constitues camping over here. Staying with a local family is another great experience and a great way to gain a unique insight into local life and learn a little culture. We’ll take you to a converted Nepalese farmhouse in a small village in Nuwakot.

Seek out the Big 5 in Kruger National Park

Take your teen on an active African adventure and discover some of the finest national parks in the world. Africa is nature's greatest show off: from spotting the Big Five in Kruger to going underwater in Kosi Bay, get up close and personal with the animal kingdom. Teens will love taking the snorkels out to explore lush mangroves and incredible coral reef, grabbing a raft and taking to the Sabi River or venturing out on a tree canopy hike.
