Intrepid Travel family adventures

A sense of adventure doesn’t disappear just because kids are now in the picture, so why should family holidays be limited to the usual suspects? Intrepid Travel has developed a better style of family travel, that favours real-life experiences over virtual ones. Travelling the Intrepid way is a bit like travelling with a group of friends. Made up of three to five like-minded families, the average group size of 10 allows you to hop aboard local boats, buses or trains, eat at friendly, family-run restaurants and kick back in traditional accommodation and home stays. Most recently Intrepid have also introduced Solo parent family tours and teenage family tours, so there are tours that fit every family shape and size. Intrepid Travel leaders are specially trained to run family adventures, so you’re well taken care of. They conduct safety assessments on all activities to meet local standards as well as their own comprehensive safety policy.


Africa and Middle East family tours

The African and Middle East family trips specialise in the big and the beautiful: camel treks through the Moroccan Sahara, exploring tombs in the Valley of the Kings or paddling a canoe through the Okavango Delta. Nature and animal lovers and budding Indiana Jones's won’t want to leave. Each of the Africa and Middle East trips have been built to rigorous safety standards, with expert guides and fully vetted family-friendly accommodation.

There’s no worrying about transfers or timetables, or stressing about finding a peanut-free stir-fry for fussy eaters or allergy sufferers.

Teenage family tours

Teenagers often get a bad rep for being tricky travel companions; notoriously hard to please when it comes to family trips. While they’re not all like that, Intrepid Travel has designed a range of teenage-specific itineraries (for kids aged 10 and up) that yours will love. Adventurous, active and with plenty of outdoor family time; they’ll keep everyone happy (and away from their phones). Could your teenage tribe do with a break?
