#1 make friends with the elephants at Patara Sanctuary in Thailand

Thailand’s hospitality is second-to-none, making it a top destination for families with younger children. And what better way to experience Thailand in all its glory than during the warm weather of spring? Soak up the sun and make your way to Krabi and Phuket’s idyllic beaches with a bucket and spade for some family-bonding time. If you’re on the hunt for something to really get the little ones engaged, then head to Patara Elephant Farm in Chiang Mai where you can get up close with the gentle giants. Here, you and your little ones will play a part in Elephant Day Care, lending a hand to feeding and bathing the elephants, (don’t worry they’re not all huge) as you learn all about their day-to-day routines and the sanctuary they live in.

#2 snorkel between tectonic plates in Iceland’s Silfra Fissure

Panoramic views across untouched landscapes and jeep tours that keep the children entertained for hours, Iceland is perfect for family adventures. You’ll spend your days hiking past volcanos and glaciers, snorkelling in the Silfra Fissure and sipping on steaming hot chocolate at Lake Kleifarvatn. Check into the luxurious Tower Suites in Reykjavik, where your family suite (or separate if you wish) will be kitted out with telescopes, plush sofas, and stylish bathrooms. From your ceiling-to-floor windows, you and the kids will be able to look out in awe of the phenomenon that is the Northern Lights. After a few days of trekking and exploring the unworldly landscapes, it’s time to gather the family together for some last-minute relaxation time as you dip into the 35-40°C water at the beautiful Blue Lagoon.

#3 explore the sand dunes of the Sahara via camel

Breathtaking, cultured Morocco is one of our all-time favourite destinations. Versatile in experiences, it’s the perfect place for the older children to get immersed in the many markets of Marrakech and the tantalizing street food options. After a vintage sidecar tour of the souks, you’ll dive out of the hustle and bustle of Marrakech and find yourself deep in the Sahara Desert living your best safari life. From your luxury camp, you’ll climb to the summits of sand dunes, dine beneath the stars and retreat back to the comfort of your chic tent for some family games. In the morning, you’ll be woken by a true Sahara alarm clock of bleating camels nudging your tent. After your leisurely breakfast out on the dunes, you’ll head out on the curious creatures for a unique ride through the desert. A good blend of adventure, culture and relaxation; this is only half of the 13-night excursion.

#4 search for blue-footed boobies in the Galápagos Islands

Delve deep into the Amazon rainforest and across the world-renowned reefs on this Ecuadorian trip of a lifetime. For those wanting to investigate Ecuador’s colonial culture, we’ve got some exciting city tours and cooking classes for you in Quito. For the landscape lovers, we’re taking you to the wonderful waterfalls and untouched horseriding trails that lead you to pre-Incan ruins. Once you’re all cultured out, you and your family will board the spacious Galápagos Star to explore the islands. The Galápagos is magical at any time of the year, however, despite it being the ‘wet’ season, spring is a popular choice for dive enthusiasts searching for marine-life and clear water swimming. From giant tortoises and marine iguanas to the iconic blue-footed booby, you’ll stumble upon some of the world’s most exotic wildlife here.
