Explore the largest man-made ice cave in the world
Are your family ready for an icy experience? Then it’s time to make the journey through an other-worldly tunnel, stretching some 800 metres into the Langjokull Glacier. You’ll visit colourfully lit ice caves, and there’s even an ice chapel!
It’s impossible not to be impressed by the most famous Maya temple site in all of Mexico; even your tricky teens will be enchanted. Marvel at Kukulkan, standing high over the ruins, and then explore a nearby Maya ‘ball court’ with its detailed stone carvings.
If your kids are husky-mad, they’ll love dog sledding through the snow. Enjoy greeting your husky team, who have travelled from the Lower Tatra to meet you, learn how to handle the sled and sip on hot drinks by the fire to warm up after an amazing day.
Prepare for your family to be charmed by the capital of Cuba. From its spacious plazas and glorious colonial Spanish architecture, to its iconic American automobiles and Che Guevara-branded buildings. It’s a city packed with culture, colour and cuisine.
We absolutely loved this trip from start the finish. We learnt so much about Thailand's history, food, local crafts and culture. I was nervous about how our fussy eater kids would cope with local foods but our wonderful guide made the food exciting and found something that each of them now love.
Outstanding trip to Thailand. The adventure we wanted and a good balance of activity and culture. The kids gelled early in to the programme and have made firm friendships. The weather was great and the standard of accommodation was excellent. The trek was harder that anyone expected and we could have used some more information about that up front. It was daunting but such a thrill to complete. Homestays were great. Hotels were great. Our leader was outstanding!
I had a great time on this trip. It was a real adventure, but also it was very well organised and we felt safe and well looked after. I would recommend this trip for parents with children looking for an adventure and a cultural experience.
