Taking the family on a trip can be as simple as loading up the car and heading to the beach or as adventurous as trekking around Thailand with kids in tow, says the Telegraph.
“The advantage of family trips with activities and adventure is that everyone gets their own space and can make their own choices – and families that don’t see each other day-to-day can spend time together,” writes Rosie Murray-West.
For those looking to get farther afield with several generations of travelers, Murray-West recommends looking for like-minded travelers.
“It can be wise to choose an activity holiday where other families travel, too. Exodus and the Family Adventure Company offer these types of trip, and this means that the children can make friends and everyone has adult company too, taking the pressure off grandparents and parents to entertain,” she says.
In Vietnam, the Family Adventure Company offers a 15-day adventure.
It “includes cruising in Halong Bay, exploring the Mekong Delta, taking a cyclo ride, watching a water puppet show, and visits to everything from ancient pagodas to sandy beaches,” writes Murray-West.
Exodus offers a family adventure to Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.
“Over two weeks, families (minimum age eight) search for the elusive tree-climbing lions of Lake Manyara, walk on Kilimanjaro, and spend four days on the spice island of Zanzibar, where they can explore its bustling streets and swim in the Indian Ocean’s clear waters,” says Murray-West.
Abercrombie & Kent takes families to Argentina.
“Every trip with Abercrombie & Kent is bespoke, so you can take or leave what you like – and the operator can arrange anything from after-hours museum access to the safari of a lifetime,” says Murray-West.
