About our Family Adventure holidays

We're big believers in the role that travel plays in introducing our children (and us) to a whole new world. Learn about the ancient Egyptians as you sail down the Nile, appreciate the incredible biodiversity of Costa Rica and experience different cultures and religions in India. Our collection of family adventures are accompanied by expert local tour leaders, who are chosen for their knowledge, passion and experience of leading engaging trips for families. 

A major highlight of travelling on a small group Family Adventure is sharing your experiences with other families and having your children make new friends. To ensure you get the most out of your trip we keep our group sizes small. Our usual family group size is around 12 to 18 people.

All of our Family Adventures have been planned around school holiday dates. Whether you fancy snorkelling Belize's barrier reef over Christmas or sleeping under the stars in Jordan's Wadi Rum at Easter, we've got dozens of adventures for you to choose from.

Frequently asked questions about Explore Family adventures


How old are children on family adventure holidays?

The average age of children on a trip varies depending on the holiday and destination - our trip pages shows the average age for each trip. If you'd like to know more about the people already booked onto a certain departure (family size, age of children etc), give us a call and we can help you choose a trip with similar aged children.  

Are Explore Family adventures suitable for single parent families? 

All of our small group Family adventures are ideal for single parent families. We know that no two families are the same, and will do our best to accommodate you in single, twin and triple rooms according to your needs. What's more, we'll never charge you for single room occupancy when you're travelling as a family. By travelling as part of a small group with Explore, the stress of planning a family holiday is taken away as we'll look after the logistics for you. And there'll be other children - and adults - to share your holiday experiences with.
