Family Adventure Holidays


These family trips are not for the faint of heart

Listen. That is the sound of a harness being buckled.
It’s the scent of plastic as you lift the snorkel over your face.

Feel it – the side-to-side rocking as you slip into the kayak, fingers making momentary contact with the water. Salt, sand, sea, and snow. This is a thing of pedals put to metal. It is the world as your playground, senses pushed to the extreme.

And the best thing? These adventure holidays are all perfectly designed for families of almost any size and ages.

Adventurous Family Trips

Experiences to get your heart racing.

Kayaking in Patagonia, Argentina

The mighty Perito Moreno glacier is a UNESCO-listed natural landmark. That says nothing of its blue-white beauty and awe-inspiring grandeur. Led by our expert guides, you’ll paddle from Los Tempanos beach to the very flanks of the glacier itself.

Take me there
Tectonic Plates

Snorkel the Silfra Fissure, Iceland

This location is among the world’s most legendary dive sites – a cavernous cleft between two tectonic plates, its waters as cold and clear as cut glass. Our guides will kit you out and send you down, and they’ll be waiting with hot chocolate and cookies when you return.

Take me there
side streets in Morocco, luxury holidays Morocco

A sidecar named Morocco, Morocco

There are few better ways to tour the medinas, boulevards and markets of Marrakech than by sidecar. Bright chrome and resplendent ruby. Goggles down, engines on. You’ll get an exhilarating understanding of what makes the city tick.

Take me there

Adventures with Borge Ousland, Norway

Fishing, kayaking, climbing, caving and snorkelling. These are just some of the activities you’ll get up to with legendary explorer Borge Ousland. The islands of Manshausen and the fjords that surround it will be your playground.

Rifugio in the Dolomites

Take me there
Wadi Rum in Jordan

Queenstown at sunset, luxury holidays new zealand

Jetting by Queenstown, New Zealand
