Why not make the most of Easter by joining us on an Explore family adventure? While Easter treats are enjoyed but soon forgotten, your memories of an exciting and inspiring family holiday will live on for years. You and your family could be exploring far-flung countries, meeting and making friends with the local people, searching for wildlife, discovering the local food and enjoying all kinds of activities from white-water rafting to elephant-back riding or dune-running.
At Easter our most popular destinations for family adventures include Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, India, Thailand and Indochina. These are all places where you can expect warm sunny weather during March and April, a welcome relief after the long European winter.
Join us on a family holiday in Morocco, a country seemingly tailor-made for adventure-loving families. In Morocco there’s so much to take in it sometimes feels like sensory overload. You can enjoy the sounds and smells of the souks in Marrakech, experience the warm sands of the Saharan dunes, the taste of tagine, couscous and fresh mint tea, the exhilaration of riding on mules through the inspiring Atlas Mountains, still capped with snow at this time of year – plus your chance to meet some of the warmest, most welcoming people anywhere.
The climate in Egypt is perfect at Easter, not too hot to enjoy all the activities but still mild enough to swim every day and enjoy the warmth of the sun. Egypt has always been a favourite with families: everything is just a bit different, which makes it exciting for children. Every day brings new and exciting experiences: the food, the history, the souks, the empty mysterious deserts, the ancient temples, the life-giving Nile and of course the beautiful beaches and coral reefs of the Red Sea.
Nearby the small but highlight-packed country of Jordan is also an excellent place to go at Easter, when skies are blue and the air is warm but not too hot. The whole family will love discovering the ancient rock-cut tombs and temples of Petra, in the footsteps of Indiana Jones; also camel trekking like Lawrence of Arabia among the coppery sands and echoing cliffs of Wadi Rum. You can also float like a cork on the saline waters of the Dead Sea, re-live Crusader battles at Kerak Castle and enjoy exploring the coral reefs of the Red Sea coast.
Easter is an ideal time to visit India, with warm weather and clear blue skies. Your adventure here will provide lifelong memories of colourful, spice-scented markets, meeting exotic-looking but warm and friendly people, watching rare Indian wildlife including perhaps the Bengal tiger, cooking and eating spicy curries, riding elephants, racing tuk-tuks or sleeping on a Keralan houseboat.
In Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam Easter is also a very good time to travel. You can expect plenty of warm sunshine and blue skies but the rainy season is yet to begin. The region has so much to offer for adventure and activity-loving families: elephant riding in Thailand, an offbeat boat journey down the Mekong in Laos, exploring the Lost Cities of Angkor in Cambodia and cycling or sea-kayaking in beautiful Vietnam.
