Your sense of adventure doesn’t disappear just because you have kids, so why should your family vacations be limited to the usual suspects?

We’ve developed a better style of family travel, one that favours real life experiences over the virtual ones. Start with kid-friendly hotels (swimming pool included), and then sprinkle in a tuk-tuk ride through the streets of Bangkok, a football match with Maasai tribesmen or sailing down the Nile in an Egyptian felucca. Who needs a ball pit and a buffet when you’ve got the whole world to play in?

Why choose Intrepid

Just for families

The clue’s in the title. These trips are for families only (including any aunts, uncles or cousins who’d like to come along, of course). As long as you’re travelling with a child under the age of 18, you’re a family in our eyes. Plus, unlike other travel companies, children aged 17 years and younger receive a 10% discount off the price of their trip.

Travel with other families

Travelling the Intrepid way is a bit like travelling with a group of friends. These trips are made up of 3–5 like-minded families, and the kids tend to hit it off straight away, allowing you to enjoy some well-earned R&R. We often find the whole family ends up making friendships with people from all over the world, staying in touch long after the adventure ends.

Small group sizes

Intrepid’s family group sizes are small enough to avoid the crowds and reach some out-of-the-way places, but big enough for a good social mix. Our average group size of 10 allows us to hop aboard local boats, buses or trains, eat at friendly, family-run restaurants and kick back in traditional accommodation and homestays.

Action packed

We know the biggest challenge on a family trip is keeping the kids entertained. So we’ve planned in advance. Nearly all of our hotels feature pools, and each day has a great mix of action-packed adventure and flexible free time. Your local leader can also suggest activities based on your kid’s hobbies or school curriculum.

Safety first

Our leaders are specially trained to run family adventures, so you’re well taken care of. You can also rest easy knowing we conduct safety assessments on all our activities to meet local standards as well as our own comprehensive safety policy. 

Responsible travel

The world’s an amazing place and we want to do our bit to keep it that way. That’s why we choose to travel responsibly, giving back to the communities we visit and helping to create a sustainable world for our children. For us, it’s also about educating the next generation of responsible travellers. 

Family favourites

Sacred Valley, Peru

Along with the nearby town of Cusco and the ancient city of Machu Picchu, the Sacred Valley formed the heart of the great Inca Empire. Come for the beautiful landscapes and chatter with local farmers; stay for the cute wildlife, such as alpacas, vicunas and llamas.

View trip

Rajasthan, India

With palaces, forts, festivals and wildlife encounters to take the breath away, Rajasthan is a must-see for all families. We stay in century-old heritage accommodation, living the life like a Maharaja and Maharani. Trace the tracks of Bengal tigers in the jungle, wander through lush palace gardens, clock the famous Taj Mahal and ride the rails through the sun-kissed countryside.

View trip

Essaouira, Morocco

An artists’ town through and through, Essaouira is full of surprises. First there’s the beautiful blue-specked townscape, with its whitewashed seaside houses you could stare at for an age. Dig a little deeper and find galleries, boutiques, wood workshops and a colourful heritage of Portuguese, British, French and Jewish influences.

View trip

Loita Hills, Kenya

Nestled in the Great Rift Valley, Loita Hills is a special place. It’s the town the Maasai call home, and it’s a privilege to spend time with such a proud and joyous people. Join in the famous Maasai jumping dance and remember to get a snap of the family leaping for the sky.

Where we stay

We take a lot of care choosing your accommodation and try to avoid the big chain hotels. Your accommodation could be a locally run hotel in Europe, a jungle lodge in Latin America, or a small, family friendly hotel. No matter where you stay, it will be of good quality and most rooms will feature ensuites and air conditioning as standard. We also prefer hotels that provide triple or quad rooms, and always try to offer adjoining rooms for parents and kids when they are available.

Looking for a tailor-made vacation?

If you like the sound of our style of travel but would rather vacation with just your family and friends, we can help. Most of our trips are also available as private departures and come with all the excitement and inclusions of a regular departure, but we can tweak and adjust the details until they fit just right.

Get in touch with our team, who will work with you to provide the best family travel experience for you and your family.

Little travellers like to ask the big questions. That’s where we come in.
