Having fun on holiday with your grandkids is child’s play on a trip that’s designed especially for you.

We've developed a new kind of family travel where young and young-at-heart travellers come together to enjoy the trip of a lifetime. Bed down for the night on a boat in Halong Bay, explore the unusual shapes and tastes of fruits at a bustling marketplace in Thailand or watch young orangutans learning to climb on a trip that swaps screen time for real time exploration. Let us take care of the logistics so all you have to worry about is creating special memories with your grandkids as they learn about the world outside their backyard.

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. 

Sustainable travel

We strive to use travel as a force for good. That’s why we choose to give back to the communities we visit, carbon offset all our trips and take our social and environmental responsibilities seriously. We’ve been officially certified as the world’s largest travel B Corp, which means when you choose Intrepid Travel, you can rest assured you’re travelling to improve the planet.

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 grandparents and kids when they are available.

Looking for a tailor-made holiday?

If you like the sound of our style of travel but would rather holiday 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.

Responsible travel

Little travellers like to ask the big questions. That’s where we come in. With so much for kids (and big kids) to learn from around the world – we believe in doing our bit to bring up the next generation of responsible travellers. This means educating the travel community in low-impact, sustainable travel practices and sharing ways in which we can all travel responsibly.
