Are you dreaming of an action-packed family vacation or an experience in an exotic, faraway destination this year? Family Adventure Travel has many different faces. From touring Costa Rica, to trekking across the Sahara Desert, to taking a safari in Africa, the common theme in all of these trips is that at the end of experience the trip is often described as a trip of a lifetime. It’s the trip you’ll all talk about forever. It’s the trip that changes your child’s perspective about the world. It’s the trip that is the ultimate example of education that happens outside of the classroom.
Many of these trips involve logistically intensive itineraries and are best taken with a qualified tour operator. I’ve planned our trips to Africa, India, Tibet, Thailand, Morocco, and Bhutan with the help of tour operators and learned that there are many factors that influence crafting the right trip. Jamie Pearson, the brilliant writer behind Travel Savvy Mom, and I have joined forces to answer essential planning questions in a series of tips-focused articles about Family Adventure Travel.
We’ve invited a handful of top tour operators offering focused family trips and services to sponsor our guide: Kensington Tours, Backroads, Un-Cruise Adventures, Tauck Bridges, and Wildland Adventures all offer something unique and amazing to families.
