Our Solo Parent Family Holidays
Looking for your next family holiday? Don’t forget, Intrepid offers a 10% discount for all travellers aged 17 and under.
The clue’s in the title. These trips are for single parent 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. Made up of 3-5 like-minded families, the kids tend to hit it off on these trips 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.
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.
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.
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.
Discover the joys of the High Atlas on a trek through scenic Berber villages, spending a night in a traditional Berber homestay. It’s a chance to discover the culture and tradition of an indigenous population who have stood the test of time. And to go downhill mountain biking, naturally.
Jump on a felucca and sail across the Nile to a Nubian village, where you'll share dinner with a local family. This is a great way to immerse your family in a different culture and learn about another way of life
It’s one of the premier national parks of India, a place where nature reigns supreme. A game drive in Ranthambhore just might reveal a Bengal tiger stalking among the ruined forts and temples; in this jungle they can be spotted even during the day.
We put a lot of care in choosing the accommodation we stay in, avoiding the big chain hotels in favour of locally-run establishments offering a unique experience. Whether it's a former palace in India or an extravagant riad in Morocco, we choose good quality operators where most rooms will feature ensuites and air conditioning is standard. Wherever possible we pick hotels that provide triple or quad rooms and always try and offer conjoining rooms when they are available.
Spend a night at one of Rajasthan's breathtaking 17th Century palaces. With its grand courtyards, colourful dining arcades and heritage rooms, the accommodation alone stands out as one of the highlights of the trip. Get to know the other parents over a game of billiards or kick back in the opulent surrounds while the kids take to the pool.
Spend the night in a family-run mountain home in Aroumd, perched on a rocky outcrop with stunning views across the High Atlas Mountains. Surrounded by the smell of woodstoves and bread, this is a unique opportunity to experience traditional Berber culture.
